Super League: Huddersfield make it three wins from three by beating Wigan
Huddersfield are the only team left in Super League with a perfect record as they made it three wins from three by coming from behind to beat Wigan 22-10.
The Giants fought back from 10-0 down to secure another major scalp as Jermaine McGillvary, Jamie Cording and Brett Ferres all went over with Danny Brough adding ten points with the boot.
Wigan's woes began before kick-off when Sam Tomkins pulled out with a shoulder injury, yet they initially made light of the absence of their talisman as they split the Huddersfield defence twice in as many minutes to surge into a 10-0 lead.
Second rower Liam Farrell burrowed his way over for his third try in as many matches before taking Blake Green's defence-splitting pass to romp into space and send makeshift full-back Josh Charnley over.
With Pat Richards adding a conversion, Huddersfield had shipped as many points in the first 11 minutes as they conceded in their first two matches.
It took them some time to recover from the shock but, with in-form second rower Ferres showing the way, the Giants clawed their way back into the game and pulled a try back on 21 minutes when right winger McGillvary took Leroy Cudjoe's neatly-timed pass and rounded Richards for a fine try.
Brough's touchline conversion cut the gap to four points and it was all square eight minutes into the second half when substitute Cording exploded on to Shaun Lunt's short pass for his maiden score.
Brough's second goal edged the home side in front and he made it 14-10 with a penalty on 55 minutes after Jason Chan had been the victim of a high tackle.
David Faiumu then saw a try ruled out for a double movement and Lunt was held up inches short as the Giants pushed for the clinching try, but they had to settle for a second Brough penalty, this time from 40 metres out.
Wigan were not finished, though, and they piled on the pressure in pursuit of a point, but the hosts defended heroically and impressive winger Aaron Murphy came to their rescue with a timely interception to deny centre Darrell Goulding a try.
Then, as Richards spun out a speculative pass 10 metres from the Huddersfield line, Ferres seized on the ball and held off the cover on a sensational 90-metre sprint to the Wigan line to seal victory, with Brough adding a touchline conversion to maintain his perfect record with the boot.
