Quite a few to choose from, I enjoyed Luke George's dummy and stroll home from 85m out, exciting to see a Giants winger with that sort of pace.

Also enjoyed the short ball to Wardle for the second last try, seems like someone has been teaching young Joe about line running as he hit several good lines today.

Not sure if we were brilliant or Widnes awful, perhaps somewhere in between. I felt Ganson was protecting them from about 20 minutes in, a less sympathetic ref and it would have been over 80 I believe

Leroy's 100 yard interception try. We were 18 nil up and camped down on our own line, that interception must have been the biggest kick in the teeth for Widnes.

I totally agree with matt01. If widnes had scored then it would have been different game. SO leroy interception try was moment of the game what i think won the game

I missed the Long range try from George cos I was in a queue for a hot chocolate for my Son Sad
So i'd have to go with Leroy's full lengther.

This is going to seem an odd choice, but for me it was the line Eorl Crabtree ran for Luke George's last try. For a prop who has worked so hard doing all the graft to run up in support to give the ball carrier options on both sides was a phenomenal effort & it held the full back up to give George a walk in. Eorl was so quick too, to be that pacy at that stage of the match after all his toil was amazing. It really says alot about Eorl Crabtree. Many people just don't see those sort of off the ball efforts, but I thought it was outstanding.

I noticed that, I was hoping he'd pass it to Eorl as a reward for staying with him up the pitch.

I dont get to watch much of home games but I noticed that and I thought pass it to Eorl! To keep up with George at that play so late in the game was imense!! Eorl looks like he's taken James Graham's mantle this season! Go Eorl!

I too noticed Crabtree's effort, he was moving like a steam train. The lad looks awesome at the moment, lets hope he can stay fit for the business end of the season.

Some great moments from the game yesterday as have already been mentioned, mine is perhaps too a strange one too, did anyone else notice Leroy's reaction when Widnes scored, he was furious that we had conceded a try even though the game was well and truly over, that to me is a brilliant attitude, wanting to defend our line no matter what the state of the game may be.

Lets hope that is a sign of things to come. We want our never say die defensive steel.

Yeah I saw Cudjoe's reaction to that try.....he did exactly the same thing when Farrell went in at the DW. High standards expected this time around it would seem! Here's hoping.

I'm basing my choice only off the highlights on the superleague site, so I may well have missed a lot of other gems. I'll pick Crabtree in the build up to the third try. He's given the ball with Widnes players around him and nowhere really to go. But he draws three of their defenders in, and still gets the ball away. After that the try is a walk in.

Class play from a class player
