A superb performance from the Warriors, highlighted by some special attacking plays and most notably, a second half shut out on defence.

Danny Orr was in good form at stand off, scoring two tries, as did Darrell Goulding and Lee Mossop, with David Small, Eamon O’Carroll and John Walker also contributing four-pointers.

Wigan’s goals were kicked by Dean Hatton, with five after coming off the bench, after Small had landed two. As for the Huddersfield side, they coped well in the opening half, tries from Balou Fagboran, Matt Gardner and Peter Robinson together with a couple of Danny Garside goals ensuring that at the interval they were still very much in contention.

But then came that superb second half display from the Wigan side, and the visiting defence had little answer, being outpaced and overpowered in key areas.
