Giants romp into final
Huddersfield went on a nine-try spree to demolish London Broncos 50-14 and complete the line-up for the last four of the Carnegie Challenge Cup.
Hooker Luke Robinson was the Giants' hero with a brace of tries to help set up a semi-final clash against Warrington and a chance to avenge Huddersfield's defeat in the 2009 Wembley final.
The Broncos, who have not beaten a Super League club away from home for more than 12 months, suffered a blow from the kick-off when second rower Matt Cook came off worst from a clash with Huddersfield winger Jermaine McGillvary and had to be helped limping from the field.
Warrington withstood a second-half fightback to inflict a first home defeat of the season on Catalan Dragons and book their place in the last four with a 32-22 victory.
Veteran full-back Brett Hodgson was the Wolves' hero, setting up a try for winger Joel Monaghan, scoring one himself and kicking three goals to give the Wolves a 14-6 lead after half an hour.
Prop Lopini Paea touched down for the home side but centre Ryan Atkins carved out a try for winger Chris Riley five minutes before half-time and Hodgson's fourth goal made it 20-6 at the break.
However the Dragons, who beat Warrington 44-16 in Super League on Easter Monday, staged a tremendous comeback to put the quarter-final tie back in the balance.
Prop Michael Simon and hooker Ben Fisher both exposed chinks in the Warrington defence to score tries within seven minutes of the re-start and Scott Dureau, who shook off a knee injury to take his place in the Catalan line-up, added both goals to cut the deficit to just two points.
Prop Paul Wood took a pass from Lee Briers to cross for Warrington's fourth try to ease the growing anxiety in the visitors' camp but centre Vincent Duport's 71st-minute try gave the Frenchmen renewed hope and it took an interception try from centre Chris Bridge to clinch it seven minutes from the end.
Wigan will face Leeds in the other semi-final.
