Highlights of the Betfred Super League game between Huddersfield Giant and Hull FC.
Danny Levi came off the bench with two tries for the Huddersfield Giants in a storming finish to secure a 22-16 home win over Hull FC.
The Black and Whites were poised to complete a formidable double against the high-flying Giants 16-6, but for the second straight week, Ian Watson’s side kept their composure, running three tries to an unlikely one in the last 10 minutes snatch victory.
Scrum half Theo Fages produced a masterclass in game management to put the Giants within reach and Hooker Levi engineered the match-winning trips for a win that bolsters their position in the top four of the Betfred Super League.
Meanwhile, a third loss in their last four games leaves Hull FC outside the top six and their play-off hopes are dwindling sharply.
history of the game
Hull FC dominated the first half for much of the period, thanks largely to Will Smith’s challenge on his second appearance.
Full-back Jack Walker opened the scoring in the fifth minute, juggling Smith’s pass straight out of a scrum to score his first try for the club.
The scrum came as Fages failed to get hold of the ball after a towering kick from former Huddersfield favorite Jake Connor, who also featured prominently in the first half.
Huddersfield were bolstered by the return of full-back Tui Lolohea from injury, with Will Pryce moving into the stalemate in the absence of the suspended Oliver Russell, while center Leroy Cudjoe was back from his suspension to make his 300th Super League appearance.
Hull FC had prop Chris Satae and center Connor Wynne back from injury and suspension respectively.
Luke Gale wasn’t able to add the goal but the visitors almost doubled their score in the 26th minute when Connor let go of winger Josh Simm but he couldn’t save the pass.
Huddersfield attacked in fits and starts and when skipper Luke Yates finally broke through their opponent’s line he was pinned on his back and Hull immediately worked his way up from where they scored their second try.
Center Wynne got the touchdown after great work from Walker and hooker Danny Houghton and Gale’s conversion made it 10-0.
Smith was shown a yellow card for punching an opponent in the face in try celebrations, and the Giants used the extra man to pull a try back four minutes into the second half.
Pryce put his side within striking distance thanks to a jinking run and Huddersfield kept the ball alive in the final tackle for Lolohea to touch down, with Pryce adding the conversion from wide.
Smith was back from the pitfalls in time to witness his side restore their 10-point lead thanks to second rower Ellis Longstaff, who won the race to Connor’s grubber-kick in the final tackle for his fourth try in five games to achieve as part of his loan spell from Warrington.
But the home side were absolutely resilient, hitting back in the hour after Lolohea’s raking kick forced a mistake from Walker and Fages scored from the resulting scrum.
Pryce’s second goal cut Hull’s lead to 16-12 and impressive front rower Owen Trout became the fourth Giants player held over the line and winger Ashton Golding was contacted as Hull struggled to stay up front.
Huddersfield Giants: Attempts – Danny Levi (2), Tui Lolohea, Theo Fages; Goals – Will Pryce (3).
Hull FC: Attempts – Jack Walker, Connor Wynne, Ellis Longstaff; Goals – Luke Gale (2).
The pressure finally showed with seven minutes remaining when Levi forced his way off the dummy half to level the score and Pryce’s third conversion put his side ahead for the first time.
Levi then attempted to round off the score with a minute to go.
what they said
Huddersfield head coach Ian Watson
“We felt comfortable against them and dominated for much of the game.
“When we started completing our sets, they couldn’t handle us.”
Hull FC head coach Brett Hodgson
“It’s hard to take. I thought the effort was very good but we didn’t bring out the right intention early in the second half and it picked up in intensity at that point.”
“Losing two of our middle players didn’t help and helped us concede those two soft tries from the dummy half at the back end of the game.”
Huddersfield now travel to another play-off hopeful at the Salford Red Devils on Saturday 13 August (1pm kick-off). The following day (3pm) Hull FC take on St Helens.
