Huddersfield Giants consolidate their position at the top of the Super League with victory over Bradford Bulls.

Huddersfield Giants consolidated their position at the top of the Super League this afternoon with a convincing 20-6 win at Bradford Bulls.

It was the home side that broke the deadlock through a Michael Platt try, but the Giants went into the break with a lead after Jermaine McGillvary and Luke George went over.

The visitors dominated play after the break, inspired by a superlative performance from Danny Brough. The half-back scored two penalties and a try as the Giants asserted their dominance.

Danny Addy added some consolatory points to Bradford's tally, capitalising on Joe Wardle's indiscipline with a penalty kick.

It was an ill-tempered second half, with Huddersfield second-row Luke O'Donnell sin-binned after a scuffle.

The result saw Huddersfield claim their fourth win on the bounce to keep the pressure on second-placed Wigan Warriors.
