York and Giants ease to Women's Super League wins

York Valkyrie thrashed Barrow Raiders to move up to third, as Huddersfield Giants battled back to beat Warrington Wolves for just their second win of the Women's Super League season.

After trading the lead three times in the first 48 minutes, Amelia Brown's try to make it 10-10 with 28 minutes remaining set the Giants up for a convincing victory.

Another score from Brown, two from Mollie Iceton, and a second from Lois Naidole completed the 32-10 win that moves Huddersfield up to sixth in the table and above Barrow, who were beaten 44-0 by the Valkyrie.

Emma Kershaw scored three of York's seven tries to help the Valkyrie move to within two points of leaders Wigan Warriors with a game in hand.
