Giants overpower Wolves


Huddersfield Giants came from behind in a brilliant display to inflict a second straight defeat onto Warrington Wolves.

The Giants came into the game off the back of a heavy defeat at Hull FC while Warrington narrowly lost out against Leeds.

It was the visitors who struck first as Tom Lineham managed to cross over the line. Bryson Goodwin was unsuccessful with his conversion attempt but it was first blood to Warrington.

Not even ten minutes later, the pendulum swung the Giants way as Dale Ferguson was put through a gap to score. Danny Brough was successful with the conversion attempt to put Huddersfield ahead by two.

A two point lead quickly became an eight point lead as Darnell McIntosh pounced on a loose ball to score. Brough was again successful with his kick to further stretch the lead. Brough then made it a 10 point lead with a penalty.

Warrington were able to go in with some consolation as Goodwin slotted a penalty between the sticks to make it an eight point deficit going into half time.

But any chance Wire had of a fightback were gone after Jordan Turner was able to pounce on a kick to score the try. Brough once again kicked the conversion to make it a perfect night for him with the boot.

It means the Giants are able to bounce back following their opening night defeat against Hull FC. They have a week off before they are back at home when they welcome St Helens to the John Smiths Stadium.

As for Warrington, a season that had so much promise going into it, has not started in the way they would have wanted it to. They have a week off before a big game as they head to bitter Cheshire rivals Widnes Vikings.
