Huddersfield 10 Hull KR 17
Picking up from where they left off in their dramatic opening-round win over Wakefield, Rovers raced into a 16-0 lead and, urged on by 2,000 vociferous fans among the 7,700 crowd, held off a spirited fightback from the Giants.
Their victory was based on a workmanlike display from their pack - in which former Australia prop Michael Vella was especially outstanding - and the kicking game of industrious captain James Webster.
Huddersfield could not match the enthusiasm of the promoted side and failed to heed the early warning signs when centre Jon Goddard breached their line only to be held up on his back.
