Pat Richards lat minute conversion sealed a 20-19 victory against Huddersfield Giants at the Galpharm Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Giants kicked off on a cold but dry day in West Yorkshire, but the Warriors were spurred on by another sizable following decked out in cherry and white.

The Warriors started the more brightly as three penalties in the first two minutes took them up field where Richards kicked the final penalty – for a high shot on Stuart Fielden – to put Wigan 0-2 up.

The Giants struck back on 6 minutes as referee Bentham evened up the penalty count in front of the posts, Leroy Cudjoe adding the two points to make it 2-2.

It took another 20 minutes before the opening try was recorded, and despite three close efforts for the Warriors it was the Giants who scored against the run of play. In bizarre fashion, Robinson rebounded off three tackles, sprung from the floor underneath the final tackle and dived over the try line. Despite appearing to bounce the ball referee Bentham awarded the four points which Cudjoe converted to make it 8-2 after 26 minutes.

It took just 4 minutes for the Warriors to record their first try as Calderwood out jumped Elford to pat a Barrett cross-field kick inside to Goulding who dived over unopposed in the right corner, and when Richards added the conversion it brought the score level again at 8-8.

The Warriors almost regained the lead on 37 minutes when Colbon dropped a cross field kick and had a half chance on 39 minutes when Calderwood collected a Robinson grubber to race 60 meters before being hauled down and having the ball stripped. The Warriors couldn’t capitalise on the penalty and so a disappointing first half finished 8-8.

It was Huddersfield who opened the scoring in the second half as strong forward play and a silly penalty took them up the field, former Wigan player Kevin Browncollecting the ball at first receiver from the final play the ball to step and dive over the line to the right of the posts. Cudjoe added the extra’s to make it 14-8 after 43 minutes.

Calderwood saved a certain try just 4 minutes later as debutant Cudjoe broke the Warriors defence and raced 40 meters before the Warriors winger pulled the big full back down 2 meters short of the line. Good scrambling defence held the attack out but a penalty on the last tackle allowed Cudjoe to add two points from under the posts to make it 16-8.

Another penalty on 54 minutes was kicked by Cudjoe to take the score to 18-8 as the game broke down on a constant basis and the penalty count grew ever higher. Brown added a drop goal on 73 minutes but Coley setup a grandstand finish as he finished Sean O’Loughlin’s break to touch down under the posts. Richards conversion made it 19-14 with 3 minutes remaining.

And with less than 60 seconds remaining Colbon broke free, passed inside to Carmont who grounded despite the best attempts from Cudjoe. Richards kept his composure to kick the touchline conversion and seal a 20-19 win for the Warriors.
