The revival of the Huddersfield Giants continued yesterday as they ran out 21-12 winners at London Broncos, who saw their hopes of reaching the play-offs fade.

Brendan Costin scored a try and four goals for the Giants and Tony Smith's side are now one point behind next-to-bottom Wakefield, who play at Hull today. The Wildcats, however, are appealing against a two-point penalty imposed on them for salary cap irregularities.

Toby Green raced over for the visitors and Costin added the goal and then three penalties before capitalising on Richie Barnett's error to ghost over for a try. Martin crossed in the corner and added the goal and then the Broncos looked to be back within touching distance when Greg Fleming touched down Moran's kick.

Mark Moxon added a drop goal for the visitors four minutes from time before Andrew Frew touched down to make the game safe."I was very disappointed and I wouldn't argue it was our worst performance of the season," the Broncos coach, Tony Rea, said.
