St Helens 48-6 Huddersfield Giants: Saints Complete Regular💪 Season Unbeaten at Home

  |   Rugby

St Helens scored 24 points in each half as they wrapped up their home Super League campaign in style with a comfortable 48-6 win over relegation-threatened Huddersfield at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

In-form prop Luke Thompson got a brace while Lachlan Coote had a perfect night with the boot, kicking eight goals from as many attempts.

The victory ensured the League Leaders Shield winners completed the regular season without losing a game on home soil, an ominous record which will give them huge confidence ahead of the play-offs.

The last time they achieved such a feat was in 2002 when Saints went on to win the Grand Final. But Huddersfield remain in danger of dropping to the Championship.

A week ago, Saints were involved in the joint lowest scoring game in Super League history - a 4-0 win over Castleford.

But it took Justin Holbrook's side just three minutes to surpass that score, Thompson racing to the tryline after a fine pass from his fellow prop Alex Walmsley. Coote, playing for the first time since the Challenge Cup Final defeat to Warrington last month, added the conversion.

After a quarter of an hour, Dominic Peyroux had a clear run to the try line after some slick Saints approach play with Jonny Lomax providing the killer pass. Coote again kicked the extras.
