Giants stride past Quins

Quins RL fell to a 46 – 16 defeat away at the Galpharm Stadium yesterday. The resurgent Giants were simply too strong for a Quins side which had looked very tired in the closing stages of their previous game against Wakefield following a punishing travel schedule over the last couple of weeks.

The Quins sorely missed the defence of injured loose-forward Henry Paul, whilst the sin binning of second-row Lee Hopkins in the second half only exacerbated their problems. Brian McDermott will be hoping that his side can regroup and focus on the impending visit of Champions St Helens to The Stoop on Sunday.
