Att: 9,774

Huddersfield Giants strong defence paved the way for a comprehensive opening day win over Bradford Bulls at the Galpharm Stadium.

The visitors made a good start to the game but their handling errors gave the initiative to the Giants, who took the lead with a Leroy Cudjoe touchdown in the corner. Minutes later Cudjoe added another and soon after hooker, Shaun Lunt burrowed his way over from dummy half as the hosts led 16-0 after 30-minutes.

Bradford hit back in the final ten minutes of the half prompted by on debut ex-Sea Eagle Matt Orford. They cut the deficit at the break to 16-8 with two unconverted tries from Stuart Reardon and Rikki Sheriffe.
