MATCH REPORT


MATCH REPORT : In a hard fought opening quarter to the half, it took ten minutes for the first points. Saints moved the ball from left to right and Matt Whitley collected Jonny Lomax’s grubber kick to slide over and grab his third try in his first two appearances for the club. Mark Percival converted, 0-6. It took until two minutes before the break for try number two. Sione Mata’utia collected James Bell’s short pass close to the Giants line and broke over the top of the defender, before planting the ball down. The video referee was called upon, and he agreed with the on-field decision of try. Percival added the two, 0-12 Saints led at the break.

Eleven minutes into the second half, Saints grabbed their third try of the evening. Saints kept the ball alive down the left edge and it found its way to Daryl Clark, he put in a low kick which bounced perfectly into the hands of Jack Welsby to score under the sticks. Percival added two more points, 0-18. Saints were reduced to twelve men just after the hour-mark. A kick to the corner looked to have gone dead inn-goal, however the referee went upstairs and the Giants were awarded a penalty and Saints lost Clark for ten minutes for the incident. Saints rode the storm well, and grabbed two late tries to seal the win. With five minutes to go, Saints grabbed the try of the game. Jake Wingfield found Welsby down the middle and he broke through, the ball was then shifted through the hands down the left edge and eventually found its way to Jon Bennison to score in the corner. Makinson missed the kick, 0-22. The final try came with two minutes to go. Welsby again collected a late offload and broke through the heart of the Giants and found the returning Morgan Knowles on his inside as support, who scored under the sticks on his return. Makinson kicked the final points of the game, as Saints beat the Giants 0-28 in West Yorkshire.

Thanks to the Saints Media Centre for their excellent report.
