Winger Jermaine McGillvary scored two early tries as Huddersfield powered back to the top of Super League with a fifth straight win.

The Giants easily won 46-4 against a weakened Salford side, with Niall Evalds giving the visitors a consolation score.

Academy product McGillvary, 25, got the rout underway when he went over in the second minute from Scott Grix's kick into the right corner.

And then, three minutes later, Danny Brough collected his own kick through and passed to Leroy Cudjoe, whose quick off-load put McGillvary in again.

Brough and Aaron Murphy then combined to put David Faiumu through before Brett Ferres scored one and made another before the break. The former Bradford Bulls ace acrobatically stretched for the line on 32 minutes and supplied the killer pass for Joe Wardle to dive over on half-time.

Brough, who signed a new five-year contract last week, kicked four goals to leave Huddersfield with a healthy 28-0 interval lead.

He made it 34-0 on 47 minutes by racing for the line after selling the Salford defence a clever dummy from Wardle's pass.

The Giants skipper converted and has now amassed 32 goals and three tries in his last five outings, taking his tally for the season to an impressive 271 points.

Evalds got a consolation score for the visitors, hit by injuries and suspensions, on 56 minutes, though Marc Sneyd missed the resulting conversion attempt.

Huddersfield debutant Josh Johnson, a 19-year-old prop, piled on the misery for Salford by setting up Jamie Cording for a touchdown on 62 minutes.

The inexperience of Brian Noble's side showed 10 minutes later when Gareth Owen should have put Ashley Gibson in the clear. The 21-year-old hooker burst through, but he dithered and then turned inside instead of passing outside to the unmarked Gibson and was tackled.

Cording's second try of the afternoon, two minutes from time, completed the scoring and set up nicely Friday's mouth-watering clash with Wigan, whom the Giants' leap-frogged back to the top.
