Joondalup caused the upset of the WA Rugby League premiership on Saturday stunning South Perth 38-22 at Admiral Reserve, Heathridge.

After racing to an early 10-0 lead, the Giants lost their composure, with handling errors crippling their play.
Jon Phipps led the Lions fight back to take an 18-10 lead but the Giants, with Macey Howarth in superb form, stormed home.
