In the last 60 seconds
Leeds will lose this one.
Good evening. Are you ready for some rugby league?
I hope you are because tonight we are in sunny Huddersfield for the opening match of round 15 of the Super League. The Giants host Rohan Smith’s Leeds Rhinos who are seeking their third straight win for the first time this season.
The Giants have won five of their last six games and sit third, following an impressive victory in Perpignan against the Catalan Dragons last week.
This is the biggest test for Rohan Smith’s Rhinos after joining the club, and we’ll be following him every step of the way. Stick with us as we wait for team news and the big kick-off in West Yorkshire tonight.
Leeds kick wide and Handley is in acres of space. He throws inside for Hardaker but he drops it.
Giants 28-10 RhinosMatthew Shaw
That’s the game. Leeds scramble for all they have but eventually Josh Jones proves just too strong for Zane Tetevano and goes over the top. That’s it.
Richie Myerl near the line is too obvious and plucked by Lolohea. On the McGillvary, stopped 20 out.
Ten out. Hitting against a Leeds man after an offload from Cudjoe. Seemed harsh.
Giants 22-8 RhinosMatthew Shaw
Leeds back in! Handley does well to hit a high kick on the last past Golding. Smith keeps him alive, it looks like his fight is a lost cause but floats a ball over for Liam Sutcliffe who finishes in the corner!
Not much has happened in the second half so far apart from a pile of errors. Leeds currently midway.
The Giants boss is currently in isolation but at tonight’s game.
And that’s your lot. One-way traffic until the last minute.
Half time, Huddersfield 22-4 Leeds.

Lifeline for Leeds maybe. Blake Austin drills through the middle and although Huddersfield are falling back, Leeds have numbers down the left and Ash Handley is in. Then the horn goes off.
It’s the first time it’s been said tonight. They did well to prevent McGillvary from scoring again.
Still 22-0. 4 minutes before the break. Leeds have a set of seven tackles.
All of this happened. Firefighters at John Smith’s!

It could be annoying. Leeds lose their way and frantically throw the ball. McQueen spots an opportunity and catches a slightly loose ball, and runs 70 yards to score!! Game over.
The Giants go wild! It could get ugly for Leeds. It’s such a good try. Fast, beautiful hands from Leutele and Wardle duck. The Rhinos are outclassed.
