Stuttering Super League champions Leeds Rhinos got back on track with a thumping 46-8 victory over Huddersfield at Headingley.

Three defeats in four games have seen Leeds stuttering despite staying top of the table, but they found some of their best form again against the Giants as they ran in eight tries in a commanding win.

Full-back Brent Webb celebrated his 50th Rhinos appearance with a try, while Danny Maguire and Ryan Hall bagged two tries each and Scott Donald, Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Keith Senior all ran in for further scores.

Great Britain forward Jones-Buchanan starred in the first half for Leeds, who were hardly tested by a poor performance from the visiting Giants.

Chris Thorman had kicked Huddersfield in front after just three minutes, but Jones-Buchanan's off-load led to winger Donald eventually going in for his 19th try of the season.

Dominant

McGuire was then at the end of a move heavily involving Jones-Buchanan and Kevin Sinfield kicked the first of his seven conversions for a 12-2 lead.

Jones-Buchanan then grabbed a deserved try for his early efforts when Rob Burrow sent him in after 26 minutes and the Rhinos led by 18-2 at the break after Clinton Toopi had a try disallowed.

The hosts maintained their dominance after the interval and three tries in 12 minutes from McGuire, Hall and Webb put the result beyond doubt.

Just seven minutes later veteran centre Senior powered over from ten yards although Huddersfield did finally manage a reply when Martin Aspinwall grabbed a try just after the hour.

Toopi put Hall in for his second try on 66 minutes and Sinfield converted his seventh kick from eight attempts in what was the end of the scoring as Leeds ran out comfortable winners and get their title charge back on track.
