Makes up for the win Wakey got a season or two back when they scored after the final whistle

I was in a great position to see the final no try and the pass didnt look forward to me.

Silverwood was awfull all afternoon and if he cant raise the level of his performances beyond that then he needs permanently stepping down.

If Huddersfield are table toppers and a good benchmark then Wakefield are the real deal this year and with a bit of money to spend they might just have a dig at the top teams.

Giants were terrible today, possibly wont play as badly all season and indeed lucky to win...but if you can pick those points up when you play like that and win, its a good sign right?

Looking at the posts, was Silverwood fair or awful?

He was truly awfull!

Allowed Huddersfield to wrestle and hold down all day, I know every team does it to a certain extent but Hudds were allowed to do it to the extreme today.
He also held about three scrums up for ages while he pedanticaly lectured the players on how to bind the front row
missed a few head shots
Wakey never got a 50/50 all game
decision on forward pass was very poor
He did that thing that arrogant refs all do, after incensing the crowd with a blatently wrong decision he then gave a penalty for nothing almost as if to say "F*** you I'm in charge"

Translation

"He was impeccably fair for both sides, one of who adapted to the ref better" ;)

Silverwood was no different than in every other Wakey v Shudds game he refs and he seems to get them all. They bring him along for every visit like some sort of comedy mascot.
In a tight game it makes all the difference.

Who was reffing the other season to let Wakey win after the game had actually finished?

Silverwood was no better or worse than any other ref any other week, Wakey deserved more than they got out of that game but not because of anything to do with the ref, Giants got two easy tries early on and thought they were going to have it easy all game, Wakey had a different idea and were much the better side in the second half, Their pack played really well and didn't deserve to loose, they will shock a few setts of forwards, Happy to get the points but it was every bit as hard as i expected, will need to get back up for next week.

I can see the Wakey fans frustration, I reckon it was a forward pass but i also know that as many are missed as are given, Giants were outplayed second half but it was still a forward pass, Wakey will play worse than that this season and win, they have some good forwards.

A good balanced view for a change.

Watched super league fulltime and luke robinson's pass for Jermaine McGillvary's second try is at least three metres forward, LR passes the ball before the line and JM catches it 2.5 to 3 metres after it!!! and Tim smiths pass to Lee Smith which was dissallowed looks flat at worst!!! very dissapointed....

A 2 point loss means the losing team scream "cheat"

If the result had been reversed I'm sure we could think of any number of examples why the ref cheated us too.

Like giving no protection to Jerry who had to go off after one to many hits to the head letting Wakey take advantage of our reorganised defence on his wing...it's all swings and roundabouts

Simple fact is Wakey had enough chance to win the game and couldn't despite the Giants being well below par

Thought he got injured making a tackle rather than taking one?

I know it's common knowledge that Wakefield only ever beat teams when they are "below par". Looks like we now can add tight defeats to this reasoning too. Won't be long before we get a 50 - nil thrashing off a below par team.

Yep got injured tackling either Cockayne or Smith.

On the subject if injuries and reorganisation, did Kirmond come back on after his injury? If not I'm sure losing you you're captain is far more disruptive than losing a winger who has already scored a hatrick.

Depends, your late score and no score both came through the spot Jerry would have been defending


Wakey lacked composure and accuracy in the pass

The giants thought it would be an easy game and failed to respect possession or the opposition

Game was there to be won by Wakey and they failed. EoS

2 points to the giants who need to improve a lot for the next couple of games
