McGillvary scored winning try with torn quad

Widnes Vikings 16-28 Huddersfield Giants

Scans today have revealed that Huddersfield winger Jermaine McGillvary scored the Giants winning try against Wakefield on Friday despite having a torn quad.

The England international suffered the injury early in the game but played on, collecting Danny Brough’s kick in the final 10 minutes to secure his sides 24-16 win.

It was revealed today that the injury is expected to keep Super League’s top try-scorer out for up to six weeks.

“I did it about 10 minutes in,” McGillvary explained.

“It was pretty painful but there was no-one on the bench and I thought I could still do a job rather than putting someone in a difficult position on the wing.

“I’m one of the senior players so I need to set a good example, especially playing outside some young lads. I didn’t want to complain too much and whinge.”
