Official Match Report

St Helens continued their perfect start to the Betfred Super League season with a 26-12 win at Huddersfield Giants as Jermaine McGillvary was kept quiet on his first appearance since the World Cup final.

Saints opened their campaign with back-to-back victories over Castleford Tigers and Catalans Dragons, and the two-week break for the World Club Challenge did little to halt their early momentum.

Huddersfield more than matched Saints in the first half but went into the break 14-6 behind after conceding soft tries to Jon Wilkin and James Roby either side of Danny Brough’s effort. Zeb Taia and Mark Percival crossed after the restart and St Helens cruised to a third straight success despite Oliver Roberts’ powerful finish.

McGillvary had an outstanding World Cup but sat out the first two rounds with a niggling knee injury and struggled to make an impact as Huddersfield suffered their second defeat of the year.

“I’m really proud of the boys to get a win here," said Saints head coach Holbrook. “It’s a tough place to play. Huddersfield make it hard and play tough footy.

“We’ve started well which is pleasing and we want to continue that and keep getting better."

Giants head coach Rick Stone said: “There wasn’t a lot doing for Jermaine and Saints handled him pretty well.“It was his first game since the World Cup final so it was a big ask to expect him to hit the ground running and be as good as he was in 2017.

“I’m happy to see Jerry play and come through unscathed. He had a significant step in the right direction and I’m sure he’ll get better after that run.”
