Rugby League - Salford on the rise after downing Huddersfield

- Salford overcame an early injury to full-back Kevin Locke to claim an impressive 18-12 victory over Huddersfield and continue their climb up the Super League standings. The Red Devils have only lost once in their last six games and are now up to fourth in the table after ending the in-form Giants' four-match winning run. They had to do it the hard way after former New Zealand Warrior Locke was taken off with a head injury before a quarter of an hour had been played, but Ben Jones-Bishop was a more than capable deputy. Jones-Bishop laid on the first try for Josh Griffin before then scoring the second, diving on Rangi Chase's kick to open up a 10-0 first-half lead. Jack Hughes pulled a score back for the Giants before the interval but soon after the break Carl Forster stretched the lead for the visitors.
