Huddersfield Giants inflicted a fourth straight defeat on London Broncos with a 30-16 victory in the capital.

Danny Brough scored one try, created two others and kept the visitors on the front foot for most of the contest with an intelligent kicking game.

The Giants were looking to bounce back from last weekend's top-of-the-table defeat to Warrington but it was the Broncos who took the lead on 12 minutes, Antonio Kaufusi taking an inside pass from Craig Gower and brushing off two would-be tacklers to touch down.

The home side were applying all the pressure, only to be stung when Brough intercepted a lofted Michael Witt pass and raced the length of the field to pull his side level.

Suddenly the Giants had a spring in their step, and they moved ahead on 24 minutes with another lucky break, Brough's spill finding Leroy Cudjoe who danced his way to the line.

The Broncos were appearing increasingly ragged, with basic handling errors stopping them exerting any pressure on the visitors.

To their credit they kept pushing, with David Howell unable to ground the ball as he burrowed to the line.

Huddersfield though always looked as though they could up the gears if they needed to, with Dixon twice having to gather dangerous kicks behind his own line as the Giants probed for a third score.

That score came right on the hooter via the boot of Brough, who slotted over a touchline penalty.

Huddersfield's luck continued into the second half, with the Giants taking a stranglehold on the game when Kevin Brown touched down after a kick completely deceived Robertson.

That score deflated both the home side and the crowd, with the visitors continuing to turn the screw.

Lift

The Londoners needed a lift, and they got one on 52 minutes when Kaufusi barged his way over for a second try, again after a short Gower pass.

That respite was very short-lived though, Huddersfield notching their fourth try through Joe Wardle just moments later.

The Broncos certainly had the work ethic, but everything appeared sluggish compared to the tempo of the visitors.

Brough was still pulling the strings for the Giants, opening up a gap for Luke Robinson only for desperate defence to snuff out the danger.

Dorn had a try chalked off for offside as the hosts tried to rally, with Jamie O'Callaghan showing great strength to add a consolation score for the home side five minutes from time, only for Cudjoe to add a last-minute score of his own.
