Win­ning habit is still elud­ing Giants

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

Child, who made a num­ber of tough calls against the hosts to leave Thor­man ‘scratch­ing his head,’ made their task al­most im­pos­si­ble.

And it was those fac­tors that en­raged Brough, who re­ceived a straight red card for ver­bal abuse of a touch­judge in the 75th minute.

That was an act Thor­man was un­able to con­done.

But he re­mains hope­ful Brough will be handed a ‘send­ing off suf­fi­cient sen­tence’ when he’s called up in front of a RFL dis­ci­plinary com­mit­tee panel this week and will be avail­able for Fri­day’s trip to St He­lens.

With the in­jury-hit Giants still lack­ing the ser­vices of a num­ber of key men, it’ll clearly be a case of keep­ing fin­gers crossed.

In con­trast, Hud­der­s­field bo­gey side Sal­ford - the Red Devils haven’t lost at the John Smith’s since 2013! - were on cloud nine af­ter reg­is­ter­ing a first away top-flight tri­umph for al­most 11 months.

Mark Flana­gan and Ben Nakubuwai touched down in­side the open­ing quar­ter of an hour while Weller Hau­raki’s sec­ond-half score and Jake Bibby’s late brace clinched vic­tory for the Red Devils.

Innes Se­nior and Roberts crossed for the hosts, but it was never go­ing to be enough on the day.

The Giants are still to win since part­ing com­pany with Aus­tralian boss Rick Stone at the end of last month, with every­one fully aware Thor­man is fac­ing a Her­culean task in try­ing to change the club’s for­tunes.

Sal­ford, mean­while, moved into the top eight at the ex­pense of Widnes.

Their three pre­vi­ous vic­to­ries this sea­son had come at home and they had not won a league game on their trav­els since a 38-12 suc­cess at War­ring­ton last May.
