Happy Stone pleased with Huddersfield response

Huddersfield coach Rick Stone was a happy man after his side responded from last week’s collapse at Hull with a comfortable win over Warrington.

Having thrown away a half-time lead to lose without scoring in the second half at the KCOM Stadium, the Giants went in to the break in front again on Thursday night, and nilled the Wolves thereon in.

Stone said: “We got a good response considering the second half last week.

“Our effort was great. All 17 players had a good crack and competed really well for the full game.

“We talked a little bit about both teams losing in the first week, no one wants to go 0-2, and we didn’t want it to be us.

They led 14-4 with two minutes to go until half time when Jake Mamo had a try harshly ruled out for obstruction, with Warrington knocking over a penalty on the hooter to reduce arrears to eight.

Stone added: “I was pretty confident we could repeat the first half effort. The boys were really upbeat and positive at half time, they knew they had to fight.

“I’ve seen it again and I thought it was a try.

“The pleasing part was we came back out and tried to repeat what we did. It wasn’t a pretty game and we got a bit of luck, but you just need to be in or around and you’ve always got a chance.”
