RugbyL: Anderson wants more from Giants

Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson says winning must become a habit for the Giants after they crushed Salford Red Devils 42-22 on Good Friday. Prior to the victory in Greater Manchester, Anderson's side had won just once in their six previous games. But they had Aaron Murphy to thank as he notched a hat-trick at the AJ Bell Stadium, while Shaun Lunt, Danny Brough, Jermaine McGillvary and Australian back row Chris Bailey also helped themselves to tries in a comprehensive performance.

RugbyL: Aussie ace relishing first Wigan St Helens derby

Wigan Warriors full-back Matt Bowen has experienced almost everything in his glittering 13-year career - but a Good Friday local derby against St Helens is breaking new ground for the full-back. Having joined the defending Super League champions ahead of this season from the North Queensland Cowboys, Bowen is the first to admit that he has taken a while to settle. Indeed Shaun Wane's side are only now beginning to hit their stride, last weekend's win over the London Broncos taking them into the top four for the first time this season.

RugbyL: Widnes slump in Dragons den

Former Cronulla Shark Ben Pomeroy crossed twice while Elliott Whitehead bagged a hat-trick as Catalan Dragons got back to winning ways with a 42-20 victory over Widnes Vikings. Vincent Duport also grabbed a double as the Dragons claimed only their second win of the Super League season but stay down at 12th in the table. Victory for Denis Betts' in-form Widnes side could have moved them up to second in the table but despite late scores from Lloyd White and Jack Owens they were always up against in Perpignan.
