Huddersfield Giants v Wigan Warriors Tetley's Super League VIII Round 17
Sunday 6th July. Kick Off 5:30pm at McAlpine Stadium.
Match Report by superleague.co.uk
A thrilling match at the McAlpine Stadium saw Huddersfield Giants claim a shock win over Wigan Warriors.

The action started as early as the third minute when David Hodgson scored for the visitors with the impeccable Andy Farell adding the extras. 

The Giants weren't behind for long, as Brandon Costin and Jim Gannon's tries took them into the lead and a further score for Marcus St Hilaire, when they were reduced by the sin binning of Darren Turner, gave the home side an eight-point advantage at the interval.

The second half was a spectacular affair as the lead changed hands several times.

Brett Dallas, on his return from a hamstring injury, brought Wigan back into the match just a minute after the break with a try but Costin's second try reasserted Huddersfield's supremacy.

The complexion of the game changed when Dallas completed a 15-minute hat-trick with further scores in the 51st and 56th minutes. 

Farrell's inevitable conversions meant the visitors led 24-18 but the hosts hit back almost immediately with a Paul Reilly try and McNamara goal to level the scores.

It was just the momentum they needed, and a crucial Paul March score and McNamara's goal gave the Giants a six-point advantage.

And a second major scalp at the McAlpine this season - following their defeat of St Helens - was secured late on with McNamara's penalty, which finally put them out of reach.
