Giants climb to seventh after Hull FC win

Huddersfield Giants 29-18 Hull FC

Huddersfield Giants moved back into the top eight of Betfred Super League with a 29-18 victory over Hull FC at the John Smith's Stadium.

Darnell McIntosh scored two tries on his 21st birthday as the Giants leapfrogged coachless Leeds Rhinos and Catalans Dragons into seventh.

The hosts went ahead in the 16th minute when Daniel Smith powered over, but Hull levelled up as Bureta Faraimo touched down for the fifth game in a row from Albert Kelly's kick.

Huddersfield then scored twice in the space of four minutes to take control of the game, Aaron Murphy pouncing on a kick from Danny Brough and Jordan Rankin then crossing.

A drop goal from Brough, returning from a three-match suspension, on the stroke of half-time made it 19-6 to Huddersfield.

McIntosh scored twice in the second half, either side of Hakim Miloudi powering over from close range, before Danny Houghton went over at the death for Hull.
