Excellent result 28-2.

Only conceded 1 try in 2 matches, and that was an interception.

Good win against the early pacesetters, sound like the Giants were never allowed to get into the game.

Only know what i heard on Radio Leeds and it sounded like there was only going to be one winner, Lots of knock ons from Wolves ,Lots of penalties from Giants, Fair amount of scoring from Wolves, nothing from Giants, sounded like the majority of games over there, Didn't sound like the Wolves were going to be breached , Back to the drawing board.

Not so much back to the drawing board as reset from a bad week

Start of the month I wanted 3/5 wins and thought we'd lose away to Wire

Next week is the key, we need to lift for that and put on a massive show

Next games = Salford, Widnes, Castleford, HKR = still top of the league.

That's a belter of a result, back in a decent position ready for Easter.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Credit to the groundsmen, the travelling support and the 9000 hardcore wire fans

Cold night, plenty of errors, Huddersfield gave away too many pens.


Myler dropped the ball four times in the first twenty mins, but was head and shoulders the best player on the park.

Warringtons pack laid the platform (hill, cooper and Westwood awesome) and the backs did the rest.

Atkins created a great try from a break down the middle, good hands over we went, great try in poor handling conditions... Just before half time.


Good to see Trent back, wires have missed him.


Overall wires played as they always do, high risk rugby and knew their defence wasn't going to be breached !!

Big result after back to back defeats

I'm still unsure why all the fuss about Danny Brough!

It sounds like Hudds struggled to adapt to difficult conditions once again. Not a surprise result really.

Workmanlike teams like Wire always get results going their way in poor conditions though ;)

Yeah, I get the feeling (hope) that they simply decided to save their gas in a game we would always have to put a lot of effort into to win so that this next batch of games would see us putting a run of wins together

No fair enough i probably sounded a bit harsh there, i've had a word with a mate who made the game and he says you couldn't fault the effort much, they were just second best on the night, Giants gave far too many penalties, Wolves don't need any help, they also played the conditions better, Don't know if Brough got crocked or whether it's the niggle he has been playing with all season, Well done to Warrington for getting the game on, and for the way they played.
Giants need to bounce back straight away or the ( wheels have fallen off quotes wont be far away ) There's no shame in losing to Wolves, Like Bradford they were better on the day, you can't win em all, Onward and upwards.

Yeah I listened to radio Leeds and they pretty much said we were just below par, simple as that and Wire just played better.


After we got tonked by the Bulls though we blatted Leeds...hopefully we will see a similar response for next week

excellent as usual, really show the conditions Gary, I feel frozen just looking

49 to 51 caption - Eorl to Leroy - get him, get him good and proper, he never invited us to his barbie in Slawit

Grim.

Seems Hudds fluffed a couple of chances where Wire took theirs too
