I'd love to know what the error count was because it must have been well into double figures for Wigan.
Huddersfield went into the game without Paul Reilly, Chris Thorman, Brad Drew and Martin Aspinwall which perhaps did Wigan no favours. Perhaps we expect them to have an eye on the cup final?
But Huddersfield were led magnificently by Robbie Paul. I've never been a fan of him but he was excellent tonight.
The rain arrived just in time for kick off and made handling difficult. Both sides struggled to hold on to the ball early doors.
It was an handling error which created the first try for Kevin Brown of Wigan, for Huddersfield. Why he was allowed to play I don't know. This was his 5th try in 7 matches at the Giants, adding to his already impressive try scoring record here at the JJB. I wouldn't let him go but many will disagree with me on that.
Anyway Nathan McAvoy knocked on a bomb from Robbie Paul and Brown simply pounced on the loose ball. Michael De Vere converted to make it 6-0.
Wigan soon responded. Bryan Fletcher loves the JJB Stadium. He has scored seven tries this year, all at the JJB and one each in the last six home matches. Fletcher powered over the line from close range and with Michael Dobson's conversion the score was tied at 6-6 with 22 minutes gone.
Before half time both sides kicked penalties to make it 8-8. Then right on the hooter Wigan broke away down the left. Harrison Hansen got clear but was hauled down by Bolu Fagborun who did brilliant to chase down from the opposite wing. Hansen had support and tried to offload to them but his pass went forward and the hooter sounded leaving it at 8-8.
The second half was very tight. Wigan were creating opportunities but kept knocking on or producing a poor kick. One break down the middle should have been finished but resulted in a knock on about 2 metres from the try line.
Huddersfield were being defended away from the try line but did retake the lead with a penalty on the hour which made it 10-8 to them.
Nerves started jangling. Luck was not going our way. A drop goal attempt from Paul was charged down and if it had fell to us we'd have been away for the score. It didn't and Hudds got six to go in good territory. Little instances like that made us all feel like it wouldn't be our day.
Until 7 minutes from time. Wigan drove and drove before Danny Orr went over under the sticks. It was a bigger roar than last week I can tell you. Dobson converted 14-10.
Time was ticking but a Wigan error inside their own half left us having to defend close to our own line. Huddersfield went oh so close but a knock on from them with about a minute to go gifted us an underserved win and two vital points which leaves them in danger and us possibly out of it.
14,092 - Brilliant attendance. Especially when you consider the Wakefield v Leeds attendance was a pathetic 3,697. The support tonight was perhaps the difference in us seeing this through.
