Official Report / Commentary

Wigan Warriors made it three Betfred Super League wins on the bounce as they ran in nine tries to hammer Huddersfield Giants 48-10.

Wigan never really looked in any danger as they went in at half-time 28-4 in front with Huddersfield’s only score coming from a Warriors error.

Tom Davies put the Warriors in front, before Huddersfield responded with an interception try from Jermaine McGillvary.

Further tries from Davies, Oliver Gildart, Joe Burgess and John Bateman saw Wigan in full control at the break.

Wigan did not need to be at their best in the second period as the damage had already been done, but a fine solo try from George Williams and further scores from Ryan Sutton, Willie Isa and another from Burgess saw them cruise to victory to leave Huddersfield with just two wins all season.

McGillvary limped off in the second half to compound a disappointing night for the Giants.

Wigan coach Shaun Wane said: "It was a professional performance. I think we completed at 100 per cent in the second half and that shows good mentality and signs of building pressure. I asked the players to have a ruthless attitude and they did that.

"We are not getting too excited, we need to be a lot better on Friday but so do St Helens. It is game on for Friday now.”

Huddersfield coach Rick Stone said: "We have a long way to go. Getting bodies will help, so will a little bit of belief at the moment because we are definitely down on confidence. We are not playing with the same spirit I know we can play with.

“It is frustrating and disappointing, but there is only one way of getting out of it and that is getting some bodies, working hard, believing in yourself and sticking together. If we do that we will give ourselves a chance.”
