Result: Huddersfield Giants win leaders' shield

Huddersfield Giants demolish Wakefield Trinity Wildcats 40-0 to clinch the league leaders' shield at the John Smith's Stadium.

Huddersfield Giants have clinched the league leaders' shield for the first time in the Super League with a crushing 40-0 victory over Wakefield Trinity Wildcats at the John Smith's Stadium.

Richard Agar's men, who remain in 12th place with one game left to play, simply could not cope with the power of the home side, who were utterly dominate throughout the 80 minutes.

Jason Chan went over twice to race into an early lead, before Brett Ferres and Aaron Murphy added to the lead before half time.

As the visitors toiled in the second half, Jermaine McGilvary scored two quick tries to see the Giants home in style.

Shaun Lunt added further to the lead in the dying stages, while Danny Brough sent six of his seven efforts between the posts.
