Ryan Hall Breaks Try-Scoring Record in Hull KR’s Victory over Huddersfield Giants

Rugby League: Huddersfield Giants Suffer Defeat Against Hull KR

Record-Breaking Night for Hull KR Winger Ryan Hall

On a record-breaking night at Craven Park, Huddersfield Giants suffered their sixth defeat in seven games, falling 32-6 to Hull KR. The star of the show was Hull KR winger Ryan Hall, who scored his 247th and 248th Super League tries, surpassing former Leeds Rhinos teammate Danny McGuire as the competition’s all-time leading try-scorer.

Discipline Issues Plague Huddersfield Giants

Despite the lopsided scoreline, Huddersfield Giants head coach Ian Watson felt the game was closer than the final result suggested. He attributed the blowout to his team’s continued discipline issues, which have plagued them in recent weeks. The Giants had a player sin-binned and another sent off on debut, allowing Hull KR to capitalize and pull away in the latter stages.

“I don’t think the scores reflected the game,” Watson said in his post-match interview with BBC Sport. “There were two real tough teams going at it there for large periods, but the same things have come back and bit us a little bit, discipline and just some stone-cold cold drop errors which you just can’t account for.”

Tough Run of Fixtures Ahead for Huddersfield Giants

The defeat leaves Huddersfield Giants four points adrift of the playoff places, with a tough run of fixtures on the horizon. Over their next seven games, five will be against teams currently in the top six, while they also face in-form Leigh Leopards and Yorkshire rivals Leeds Rhinos.

Watson acknowledged the challenge ahead, but remained positive about his team’s recent performances, despite the concerning discipline problems.

“Other than that, mate, I’m pretty positive about where we’ve been in the last three weeks,” he said.
