Full Time Report

Giants head coach Rick Stone will have had mixed feelings after his side fell to Wakefield at the newly named Mobile Rocket Stadium on Saturday evening. Conditions were cold and damp as Stone gave first outings of the year to Jake Mamo, Jordan Turner, Lee Gaskell, Ukuma Ta’ai, Ryan Hinchcliffe and Jake Wardle but still missing Kruise Leeming, Leroy Cudjoe, Sebastine Ikahihifo, Shannon Wakeman, Tom Symonds, Jermaine McGillvary and Darnell McIntosh from his senior squad.

Both sides started strongly and the Giants took the lead with a Jake Mamo try from an inside ball from Gene Ormsby. The home side hit back on the back of consecutive penalties before Ukuma Ta’ai drove in from ten yards out with Brough this time adding the extras.

Wakefield hit the 16 point mark before the Giants scored on the hooter as Lee Gaskell dotted down a Jordan Rankin grubber and the sides went to the sheds level.

Substitutions galore came from both sides and the Giants next and only second half score came from Jordan Turner who plucked a cross field kick from the air to touch down ten yards to the side of the posts. Young outside back Jake Wardle then picked up an ankle problem and Sam Wood a knee issue to spoil the Giants evening as Wakefield came out on top 26 to 22 with the Giants again pressing strongly in the last few minutes of the half and ending camped on the Trinity line.

The Giants final pre-season game will come on Saturday at Workington.
