SAINTS maintain their unbeaten start to the 2018 Super League season. T hey defeated Huddersfield Giants 26-12 on a bitterly cold night at the John Smiths Stadium. Jon Wilkin opened the scoring for Saints when he drove over from close range, but Danny Brough cancelled that out in a scrappy first half. Saints sneaked into the lead again just before the break when James Roby crossed from dummy half to make it 14-8 at the interval. Saints kept chipping away in the second half without really hitting full throttle with tries from Zeb Taia and Mark Percival, both courtesy of Jonny Lomax, giving them a winning lead. Oliver Roberts pegged one back for the hosts, but Saints were not letting this one slip away. A large and vocal Saints contingent bolstered the 5,915 gate in Yorkshire.
