Wolves comeback floors Giants, as Widnes and Hull KR also win

Warrington scored 29 unanswered points in the second-half to claim their tenth straight win over Huddersfield.

Rhys Evans, Richie Myler, Ben Westwood, Matthew Russell, Gene Ormsby and Joel Monaghan were the Wolves’ scorers, as they responded to first-half tries from Scott Grix and Jodie Broughton.

The gutsy win moves Tony Smith’s side up to sixth in the table, two points clear of the Giants.

Ill-discipline was Huddersfield’s downfall, spending most of the second period defending on their own line, and it is now three home games without a win for the 2013 minor premiers.

Meanwhile, at the Select Security Stadium, Widnes extended their 100% home record with a close-fought win over bottom-side Bradford.

The Vikings, for whom two-try playmaker Kevin Brown was man of the match, raced into a 16-nil lead, only to be pulled back by the Bulls in the second-half.

The home side, whose other scores came via Jack Owens and Patrick Ah Van, defended well enough to hold on for their fifth win of the season.

Liam Sutcliffe, Elliot Kear and Brett Kearney were Bradford’s try-scorers.

The other Super League game of the day saw Hull KR thrash Wakefield 44-6.

Rovers, who before today had only won once this season, eased to a 22-nil lead by half-time thanks to tries from Neville Costigan, Omari Caro, Josh Hodgson and Kris Welham.

The second-half was a similar story, with Caro, Hodgson and Welham all grabbing a brace alongside a Kris Keating try.

Pita Godinet scored a late interception try for the Wildcats, who slumped to their fifth defeat of the campaign.
