Warrington coach Tony Smith was left counting the cost of victory at Huddersfield with the news that Ben Harrison could be out for the season.

Harrison suffered a suspected ruptured anterior cruciate ligament during the 32-22 success while Simon Grix is likely to be out for several weeks with a medial ligament injury.

Smith said: "We lost two boys very early in the game which made it very tough for us. We had a lot of things to overcome.

"With Grix it looks like his medial, Harrison is more serious. It looks like he's done his ACL. Benny's a bit shattered in there.

"It's a blow for both boys but that's part and parcel of our sport. There was a lot of bravery shown."


Smith, a former Huddersfield coach, paid tribute to the Giants' kicking half-back Danny Brough as well as his own captain Adrian Morley, who was playing his 400th club game.

"We were up against one of the best kicking games in the competition," he said.

"There were some big performers, some of our senior men stepped up. It's a fair achievement for Morley, (Lee) Briers was sensational again and (Ben) Westwood is just a machine.

"I wish I could train like him. He keeps on going."

Greg Eden, Jason Chan and Danny Brough scored other tries for Huddersfield, who missed the chance to consolidate top spot after losing for the first time.

Giants coach Nathan Brown said: "We played some good footie but the most disappointing aspect was the first 15 or 20 minutes when we probably showed our opposition too much respect.

"I'm quite happy that we're improving. We just didn't take our chance to hit the front at a crucial stage of the game."
