Giants ease past Wolves

Huddersfield Giants moved to within a point of the top eight with an impressive 44-4 victory over a poor Warrington Wolves.

The Giants went into an early lead through Ollie Roberts as they started well on top against their fellow strugglers.

Jermaine McGillvary and Aaron Murphy opened up a 14-0 lead before the break, diving over on their respective wings.

Paul Clough continued the dominance early in the second half before Jordan Turner eased over for a debut try.

Tom Lineham finally brought Warrington onto the board midway through the second period but Jake Mamo finished a brilliant break as normality was restored almost instantly.

McGillvary and fellow winger Murphy completed their respective braces to round off a wholly comfortably victory for the Giants.
