Hull FC (12) 12
Tries: Shaul, Faraimo Goals: Sneyd 2
Huddersfield Giants (10) 22
Tries: McGillvary, Murphy, Senior, Frawley Goals: Gaskell 3

Huddersfield Giants scored two late tries to take a huge stride towards Super League survival with a thrilling win over play-off chasing Hull FC.

Giants trailed to a Jamie Shaul try in the corner despite a bright start, but England winger Jermaine McGillvary and Aaron Murphy crossed for the visitors.

Bureta Faraimo's score out wide had Hull ahead at the break.

But a gutsy Giants display was rewarded inside the final 15 minutes, Louis Senior and Matt Frawley both crossing.

Huddersfield's win leaves them two points clear of bottom two Hull KR and London Broncos with two games still to play, but having played a game more than their rivals.

Tries: Thompson 2, Peyroux, Grace, Knowles, Amor, Lomax, Makinson Goals: Coote 8
Huddersfield (0) 6
Tries: Lawrence Goals: Russell

Huddersfield's Super League survival battle will go down to the final weekend after they were thrashed by St Helens and London won at Hull KR.
The Broncos remain bottom but are now level on points with the Giants, Robins and Wakefield, who lost at Warrington.
Huddersfield never got close to a win that would have all but guaranteed their safety as top-of-the-table Saints scored four tries in each half.
The Giants crossed once themselves but it was scant consolation.

Louis Senior scored four tries as Huddersfield beat Catalans Dragons 24-22 to secure their Super League status. London, are relegated to the Championship.

Arthur Mourgue extended their advantage before 19-year-old Senior scored twice more and Jermaine McGillvary's 74th-minute try won it for the Giants.
