Academy beat Giants: Report, Highlights and Gallery!

The Saints battled to a hard-fought victory over the Giants on Saturday and you can watch the highlights below.

Being down to 12 men for half of the first period meant that the Saints were always up against it. Couple that with their ongoing capacity for silly errors and they were lucky to come out of it on top.

Two tries, one each from Jonathon Bennison and Dan Ganson gave the Saints a slender two-point lead at the break.

The Saints were dealt a triple injury blow and could have capitulated but instead were galvanised by the introduction of Ben Lane and Sam Haynes off the bench the second half was a much better display.

Bennison and Jumah Sambou stood tall continuously making the hard yards out of defence.

The pack led by Cole Appleby, Harry Brooks, Alfie Pyke and George Delaney really took it to the Giants with Pyke and Appleby scoring tries for their efforts.
