Super League star sent to hospital

It has already been a big week in Super League with a huge clash on Friday night as Warrington Wolves and St Helens collided, a massive shock as Wigan Warriors were beaten by Wakefield Trinity on a night that upped the pressure on Castleford Tigers in the relegation battle as they lost to Leigh Leopards.

But in a game many saw as a formality was another shock result.

Huddersfield Giants headed over to France to take on league leaders Catalans Dragons and weren’t given a prayer given their recent form as the pressure mounts on Ian Watson.

The Giants though got first blood after a high bomb from the Dragons backfired and allowed Kevin Naiqama to streak away and score the first try of the game.

However, the French side hit back with a try from Tom Davies to level matters as Arthur Mourgue nailed the conversion.

The Giants though remains positive with Chris McQueen scoring after great work from Tui Lolohea to fire the Giants 12-6 ahead.

Olly Russell then nailed a penalty to make it 14-6 but a second try from Davies narrowed the lead to 14-12 at the break with Jake Connor missing a penalty.

After 16 minutes of a close battle in the second half, Mourgue nailed a penalty to level matters until Chris McQueen hit a great line to power through and make it 20-14.

A decisive blow but the game was sealed by an Olly Russell penalty to wrap up a vital 22-14 win.

However, it wasn’t all good for the Giants with star second-row Harvey Livett sent to hospital during the win.

It has now been revealed he had dislocated his elbow but is free to come home with the rest of the squad.

The club made the following update:

“We can provide an update on Harvey Livett, who dislocated his elbow yesterday evening. He has been discharged from hospital to re-join the lads and will be assessed further on returning home.

“We’d like to thank everyone involved, including Catalans staff and Perpignan Hospital on looking after Harvey.”
