New Zealander Robbie Paul has had his first taste of success with his new UK Super League club Huddersfield.

His side has upset Warrington 26-10.

Fellow New Zealander Motu Tony has also been on a winning side, scoring a try in Hull's 40-14 drubbing of Wakefield Trinity.

David Solomona scored two tries for Wakefield.

Meanwhile, the Warriors' preseason campaign heads to the Gold Coast, with plenty of work to be done if things are to pick up.

Having lost 26-10 to the Cowboys in Cairns, they now face 2004 premiers the Bulldogs at Carrara Oval on Saturday.

Coach Ivan Cleary says they need to focus on their defence, while the execution on attack needs plenty of work.

He says they will become slicker with more games, but they have to stop giving away so much possession early, in order to stay in matches.

However, considering the faults, Cleary says his side is showing plenty of character.

League: Harlequins surprise

20.02.06 7.00am


Injury-hit Harlequins pulled off one of the surprise results of the season when they twice came from behind to hold English Super League champions Bradford to an 18-18 draw yesterday.

Well led by New Zealand scrumhalf Thomas Leuluai, the Londoners put last week's thrashing by St Helens behind them to end the Bulls' 14-match winning run and come within a couple of minutes of victory themselves.

Quins would have claimed both points had former Bradford centre Paul Sykes succeeded with an injury-time drop goal, but his long-range effort drifted wide.

Bradford were relieved with a point after an indifferent display on their first appearance at Odsal since their Grand Final and World Club Challenge wins.

Twice Paul Deacon attempted late penalties to force a draw and, to the relief of many in the 11,000 crowd, he succeeded with his second effort two minutes from the end of normal time.
