Official Report / Commentary

Jonny Lomax grabbed a hat-trick of tries as St Helens bounced back from their surprise defeat at Wakefield Trinity with a 66-4 victory over injury-hit Huddersfield Giants.

Inspired by classy full-back Ben Barba, Saints ran in 12 tries in all to register their biggest win over the Giants in the summer era and consolidate their place at the top of the Betfred Super League.

Barba, Ryan Morgan and Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook scored two tries apiece while Regan Grace, Danny Richardson - who kicked nine goals - and Kyle Amor also crossed.

Huddersfield got on the board through Jordan Turner but their heaviest defeat of the season leaves them still looking for a first win under interim head coach Chris Thorman.

The Yorkshiremen's cause was hit by the unavailability of nine regulars following the late withdrawal of Lee Gaskell and Seb Ikahihifo, who were both injured in training, while talismanic half-back Danny Brough was suspended.

Saints coach Justin Holbrook said: “I’m really happy with that. We wanted to bounce back from last week and they did that really well.

“It was great to watch the boys play as well as they did tonight."
