The Australian rugby league coach Nathan Brown has enjoyed a winning start to his Super League career when his Huddersfield side clinched a 30-8 win at Catalans Dragons in France.

The former St George Illawarra coach Brown saw second row Simon Finnigan mark his Giants debut with two tries with Shaun Lunt, David Hodgson and Andy Raleigh also scoring.

In the other matche the Celtic Crusaders went down to a 28-16 defeat at Salford, their second successive defeat.
