Totally dominant performance so far by Wire, too fast and clever for Hudds.

Few decisions that could be classed as 50/50's going our way. Replays showing they are correct decisions, but on another day they could easily have gone to the Giants.

 

Deserving our luck though tbh.

Whilst that may have been a steal, if the Hudds player had have tried to keep hold instead of letting go of the ball to hold his hands out appealing then they would probably still have had the ball. Own worst enemies at the moment.

 

Riley in, VR decision

It's a cake walk. Wire are a class apart. The team to fear in the draw later.

We need to copy the NRL rules where any hand on th ball by a tackler in a multi player tackle is penalised

The Giants are v poor but Wire have made them so. Shame it's not a close game, but after the cricket and Froome it's probably good for the heart.

That's not the rule. That is only after the tackle is complete.

 

Pretty much every tackle in the NRL has hands on the ball.

Hmm.HD Super Slo Mo may have ruled that out.

Fair enough Dave but if we can go to the VR for things other than a try maybe we need to do so for lost ball/ ball steal as it makes the game look amateurish when it's obvious to the TV viewer what's gone on.

I think the problem is though that things like that are subjective. Personally if I was the Hudds players coach I'd be pretty pee'd off as he let go when there were hands in as he expected a penalty. There is a valid argument for a loose carry. It is actually legal to have hands on the ball.

 

Come back on!

edit - that's not the case as even if there was separation it was backwards and then he got fingers on it.

I say it time and again, should we really be playing with a fullback who simply can't tackle? 

 

It looks like he is now injured.

Good to see Hudds finally wake up.......it looked like a shellacking was on the cards 15mins ago

A great break from Hodgson but an even better finish from Monaghan. Didn't realise his try scoring record was quite so good!

Phew - relieved that we got one before half time as they'd really muscled their way back into it, fair play!

 

Some beautiful offloads from Wire particularly in this first half. Some great tries and attacking play this 40.

Typical Wire v Giants game so far

NOTHING goes right for Huddersfield in the first 20, then the Giants get to the game with too much to do :(

I'd slightly disagree with that. Twice Warrington have ripped the ball out and twice got away with it; one resulted in a try. The other was the Huddersfield offside decision on their own line. Baffling decision considering the side on angle didn't show any offside; scored too! 

 

That said, Warrignton thoroughly deserve their lead!
