Huddersfield comfortably beat Wolves

From BBC - February 8, 2018

Huddersfield Giants picked up their first win of the Super League season with a home victory against Warrington.

Tom Lineham put the Wolves ahead early on but Huddersfield hit back through converted tries from Dale Ferguson and Darnell Mackintosh to make it 12-4.

Danny Brough's goal extended their lead before Bryson Goodwin hit back with a penalty on the stroke of half-time.

Jordan Turner's score in the corner settled it, with the visitors unable to find a way back into the game.

The adverse weather affected the match at the John Smith's Stadium, with wet conditions limiting both sides' opportunities and Warrington conceding penalties regularly.

The Wolves have now lost both their opening games of the 2018 campaign under new head coach Steve Price, after a defeat to defending champions Leeds in their first match.

Huddersfield head coach Rick Stone:

"I thought our effort was great. Seventeen players had a real crack and competed for the whole game.

"For the most part, we did pretty well. At any time you make less than 10 mistakes you give yourself a good chance, and in those conditions - we were pretty happy with that.

"The pleasing part from us in the second half, compared to last week, is we came back and tried to repeat what we did in the first half and we got through."
