The birthplace of rugby league saw its rugby league club secure survival easier this time around!
Under a new Head Coach in Rick Stone, the Giants bared eight points better than last season to, funnily enough, secure eighth spot in the regular season.
Full credit to them, especially as they had to make changes to personnel during the season, that could have easily disrupted them, but thankfully, they successfully coped with such transition and survived.
The rebuilding job will continue on into next season but that’s to come; let’s look back at their 2017 season in full.
Best performance: Catalan Dragons 12-56 Huddersfield Giants
Controversial? Hardly as the Giants’ best performance of the season has to be their 56-12 thumping of the Catalan Dragons in Perpignan.
Yes, the Dragons have had a season of woe but nevertheless, travelling to France and recording such a heavy win deserves plenty of credit.
Not only that, heading into the game, only one point separated either team, which would prove crucial later one when the Super 8s came into play.
So there’s multiple reasons why the achievement was superb but focusing on their performance in the game, it was nothing short of sensational.
Australian Jake Mamo was the star of the show, scoring four tries as well as tallying almost 250 metres with ball in hand.
Internationals Jermaine McGillvary and Danny Brough lived up to such an achievement by scoring two tries apiece, with further tries coming from Aaron Murphy and Shannon Wakeman.
The Giants were dominant from start to finish as Catalan simply had no answer, merely scoring twice through Tony Gigot and Sam Moa.
