Match Official: P Bentham

Hull KR produced a magnificent comeback to shock Huddersfield Giants, coming from 22-10 down before the break to sink their second-placed opponents and move up to seventh in Super League.

In the previous meeting between the sides 80 points were scored as Huddersfield won 50-30 at home. Tonight's match started in the same fashion with seven tries before the turnaround.

The home side were again without second-row forward Cory Paterson, who completed the final match of his four-game suspension.

Both Brett Ferres and Leroy Cudjoe, named in the England squad to face the Exiles next week, were included by Huddersfield.

A Giants error and back-to-back penalties allowed the home side to get an early score with a swift passing move giving Travis Burns the chance to slice through.

Michael Dobson converted and three minutes later it was 10-0 with a sublime one-handed offload in the tackle by 20-year-old centre Liam Salter supplying the try for Alex Brown.

Huddersfield remained calm and they hit back in style with four tries in 11 minutes midway through the first half.

Luke Robinson supplied a try for Cudjoe with a neat short pass. Then, after a Mickey Paea knock-on following a vicious hit from Ukuma Ta'ai, the Giants scored through Joe Wardle after Aaron Murphy had cleverly flicked back Danny Brough's high kick.

The visitors took the lead when Robinson broke from deep in his own half and the supporting Shaun Lunt collected his pass and ran in for his 13th try of the season.

Then Cudjoe grabbed his second try when he intercepted Dobson's pass to race 90 metres for an electrifying score.

A penalty allowed Rovers to turn the tide and Graeme Horne crashed over after a short pass from Burns, Dobson converting to reduce the deficit to six points at the break.

Rovers started the second half the stronger and in a six-minute spell halfway through the second period they amassed 18 points to lead 34-22.

Firstly, Burns grabbed his second try as he barged over from close range and Dobson's conversion levelled the game.

Then Burns' spectacular run and excellent grubber kick to the corner allowed Brown to pounce to give the hosts a six-point advantage with a converted try.

That was extended further when Dobson put Con Mika over from close range.

The Giants threatened to hit back but Ta'ai overhit his kick after breaking.

With six minutes to go Murphy crossed from an inch-perfect kick by Brough, and the stand-off converted from the sideline to close the gap to six.

But a subsequent error from Robinson gave Hull KR position and Dobson sealed victory for his side with a drop goal.
