Sunday 18th September 2005. Kick Off 3:00pm at Galpharm Stadium.

Match Report

Wigan ended the season with two Super League points at Huddersfield but as expected missed out on a play-off spot after London’s demolition of Widnes in the capital. Ian Millward will have been pleased with what he saw from his team although realistically neither side had little more than pride to play for.

The Warriors were comfortable winners in the end at a ground in recent visits they have struggled to come away from with much, this time though this was wrapped up with three tries in twenty minutes after half time although there was a late fightback from the Giants.

For the Warriors Chris Ashton made his first start, according to the team sheet he was to partner Sean Gleeson on the left hand side but Gleeson ended up on the right and in his last appearance for the club Brian Carney was made captain.

It was the home side that started the brighter, twice getting into the Wigan twenty but being unable on the last tackle to break the line with Nero and Crabtree both held short.

On ten minutes Danny Tickle came close to the opening try. Not held in the tackle he continued his run forward only to lose the ball and knock on within inches of the Giants try line.

The Warriors did take the lead on 18 minutes, Stephen Wild held just short and Dennis Moran was able to crash over in the right hand corner from the play the ball. Danny Tickle hit a superb conversion and Wigan led 6-0.

Huddersfield responded almost immediately as Stuart Jones was able to cross to the right of the posts, the conversion was missed 4-6.

On 35 minutes, Danny Tickle made a good break down the middle and he had support from Chris Ashton who was able to celebrate his first senior try for the club. Tickle added the extras and Wigan had opened up an eight point lead. Soon after Danny Orr scooted away for the Warriors third try after poor defending from the home side, Tickle slotted the conversion and at half time the scoreboard read Huddersfield 4 Wigan 18.

The Giants crossed for the first points in the second half, a Thorman kick and Evans pounced for the four points, Thorman converted to make it 10-18.

Warriors centre Kevin Brown put Ian Millwards side back in control on 53 minutes, Brown side stepping the covering home defence close to the line, this time Tickle slipped as he struck the conversion. On 63 minutes a Danny Orr inside pass sent over Danny Sculthorpe for Wigans fifth try, Tickle again missed the extras, 10-26.

A sweet move on 66 saw Wigan spreading the ball to the flank through five pairs of hands and Sean Gleeson provided the final pass to Carney in his final appearance for the club for the try in the right hand corner, the conversion was missed but it mattered little with the score of 10-30.

A Paul White try reduced the arrears but it was too little too late for Jon Sharps side, Thorman struck the conversion to make it 16-30. Thorman crossed for a further try under the sticks.

In the dying moments 18 year old Chris Ashton dived over for his second try and this time Brian Carney, yes Brian Carney struck a conversion from the touch line. An appropriate end for a great player in Wigan colours.

Reaction to the Action

Wigan coach Ian Millward: "I think it's been a fantastic finish to the season as we have won seven of our last 10 so we're probably the form team of Super League over the last two months,"

"I told the players on Monday this would be the last game and we've booked all the imports on flights home. I wasn't going to kid the players.

"But it was a quite outstanding performance, especially if you look at the players we had out - coming over on the bus it looked like an Under-21 or Under-18 team.

"A lot of people thought we had nothing to play for but the attitude was 10 out of 10.

"The last impressions are the best impressions and I thought we were absolutely fantastic. I'm really happy for the players who are leaving."

Giants coach Jon Sharp: "It's disappointing. We set off really well and created three of four early opportunities but we couldn't sustain it. We struggled with the pace of their outside backs.

"We weren't quite as good as we have been but maybe we had a hangover from the massive effort at Bradford last week.

"But it can't mask a progressive season for us. We've really improved as a side and we are closing the gap."
