minutes when winger James Clare forced his way over at the corner after good work from Michael Shenton and Peter Mata’utia to stretch the Tigers’ lead.
Defences were on top for most of the second half but McMeeken found a chink in the Giants’ armour on 66 minutes and that opened the floodgates.
Moors crashed over for his second try and, with the visitors wilting badly, Mata’utia scythed through their defence straight from a scrum before prop Grant Millington rounded off the scoring, touching down Jake Trueman’s grubber kick for his side’s eighth try.
It was the first time the Giants have lost three times in succession since Woolford arrived at the club. CATALANS Dragons have released winger Fouad Yaha immediately to enable him to switch codes with Top 14 club Agen.
The 22-year-old, a member of the Dragons team that won the Challenge Cup at Wembley last month, has signed a two-year contract with the rugby union club.
Yaha, who came through the club’s academy, scored 32 tries in 62 Super League appearances for the Catalans and was in the France team that lost to England in their last group match of the World Cup.
“I would like to thank the Catalans Dragons for the four seasons I spent at the club,” he said. “I have improved into a better player during my time at the club and I’m happy to make the Catalans Dragons history by winning the club’s first trophy.
“I would like to thank Steve McNamara, Bernard Guasch, the board members and all the club staff for giving me the opportunity to play and to improve in the best conditions.
“I also want to thank my teammates. It’s not easy to leave them as they are much more than friends. We took up together the challenge to win the club’s first trophy and I am looking forward to a new challenge now.” Minikin, Milner, Sene-Lefao, Clark.

LONDON Broncos threequarter Elliot Kear will captain Wales in the European Championship.
The 29-year-old former Bradford player takes over from ex-Giants player Craig Kopczak, who has retired from the international game, and will follow in the footsteps of his former Whitchurch High School classmates Sam Warburton and Gareth Bale in captaining his country.
Kear, a vice-captain at the 2017 World Cup, has scored 11 tries in 24 appearances for Wales, making him jointly the fifth most capped player of all time.
