Full Time Report

It was a comprehensive defeat for the Huddersfield Giants as they were truly well beaten by an excellent Wigan Warriors side.

In both halves the Giants started the brighter, but the physical presence and attacking ability of Wigan was too much to handle for Huddersfield.

In the first half, Huddersfield started the game brilliantly and deservedly took the lead in the 7th minute as the full back Tyllar Mellor who put in a great performance offloaded to Ross Whitmore who found his way to touch down. Greenwood kicked the extras to give the Giants an early 6-0 lead.

However, the Giants deflated as they let Wigan score five tries in a row all converted to leave themselves 30-6 behind at the interval.

When Huddersfield were 12-6 down Connor Hampson was sent to the bin alongside a Wigan player after they were both involved in an altercation.

The second half began the same with the Giants once again, the Giants starting the better but Wigan controlling the game.

In just the 42nd Minute, Mellor brought the Giants back in to the match as he pounced from a neat kick through from Flynn to grab a deserved try. Greenwood added another successful conversion to close the gap to within 18 points.

However, the Giants let a Wigan onslaught as the visitors scored 4 tries in a row with 2 conversions added to leave Huddersfield 50-12 down.

A consolation score from Sam Hewitt couldn’t damper the team performance as the Warriors had the final say with a try of their own which meant Huddersfield Giants lost 54-16.
