Table-toppers Huddersfield bounced back to winning ways in Super League with an impressive 32-8 triumph away at reigning champions Leeds.

Inspired by the returning Danny Brough, the Giants showed their home loss to Bradford in round five was merely just a blip to record their third straight triumph at Headingley.

Skipper Brough, who was left out of Steve McNamara's England training squad squad during the week after missing the 43-18 reverse to the Bulls through illness, scored one try himself and had a hand, or foot, in four others.

The half-back created both first-half tries with his left boot; centre Joe Wardle pounced for the first after Leeds winger Joe Vickery failed to gather the ball under pressure from Aaron Murphy, who got the second himself on 31 minutes.

Leeds pulled two points back at the end of an error-riddled first-half with a 40-metre penalty from skipper Kevin Sinfield that made it 8-2.

Brough kick

Yet any thoughts that the Rhinos might come out charged up after the break disappeared when a knock-on by Chris Clarkson 30 metres out from his own line, leading to a pinpoint Brough kick that gifted Murphy his second.

Leeds saw full-back Kallum Watkins knock on in the act of scoring to sum up their night before Huddersfield extended the lead on 51 minutes when Brough kicked a penalty.

Huddersfield then made the game safe with a fourth try, substitute David Faiumu picking up the ball after it had twice been hacked forward to lay on a score for full-back Scott Grix.

Brough kicked his first conversion to make it 20-2 and then supported a break from deep inside his own half by second rower Brett Ferres to get a try his personal performance deserved.

Leeds scored a consolation try through hooker Paul McShane, who dummied his way over from dummy-half, but Huddersfield had the final say when Brough came up with a jinking run to get prop Eorl Crabtree over.
