Super League Review: Dragons slay Giants to go second


Catalans Dragons kept pace at the top of the the Super League table as they came from behind to beat Huddersfield Giants 16-14 at Stade Gilbert Brutus on Saturday.

A converted Nathan Mason try and a penalty from Danny Brough took the visitors out to an 8-0 lead, before Louis Anderson crossed to reduce the deficit in the 32nd minute.

Two tries in the space of five second-half minutes then turned the game on its head as first Justin Horo and then Tony Gigot found the line for the home side.

Jake Connor's try 15 minutes from time gave the Giants hope of downing the Dragons in Perpignan for a second successive year.

But ultimately the hosts held on to extend their fine run of form to just one defeat in nine games.

The Dragons are second on 20 points, level with leaders Warrington Wolves and third-placed side Hull FC.
