Giants Academy triumph in Newcastle
Huddersfield Giants Academy 56-0 Newcastle Thunder Academy
Huddersfield Giants Academy secured a convincing win in their Academy season, beating Newcastle Thunder 56-0 at Kingston Park.
Two Giants players who have made their way into the first team group were named in the squad for the Challenge of Newcastle, with Aidan McGowan and Fenton Rogers lining out. Will Pryce’s promotion to the first team meant a call up for Ethane Wainwright at half-back for the Giants.
The Claret & Gold got off to a convincing start, with a flurry of tries in the opening 40. Fenton Rogers registered two, while Kieran Rush, George Roby, Rhodes and Aidan McGowan all got themselves on the scoresheet. Rush registered 3 from the boot alongside a double for Sean Slater and a conversion from George Roby, as the Giants went into the sheds at half-time 36-0 to the good.
The Giants continued in the same vein of form into the second half, with tries for both the hookers, Kieran Rush scoring and George Roby completing a double salvo. Ethane Wainwright and Fin Stewart completed the scoring for the Giants, who notched an impressive victory in the 2021 campaign.
