"It wasn't pretty but who cares if you win it?"




Huddersfield Giants hit the top of Super League, maintaining their 100% winning start to the season with a 22-10 victory at home to Wigan.

The Warriors lead 10-0 through Liam Farrell and Josh Charnley but, playing without the injured Sam Tomkins, do not trouble the scorers again. Insteead it is Paul Anderson's side who take command, scoring through Jermaine McGilvary, Jamie Cording and, following two Danny Bough penalty goals, Brett Ferres to seal the win;

"It was the sort of game we needed to make sure we actually believe in the things we are putting in place." says Anderson;

"It wasn't pretty but who cares if you win it?" he adds.

Meanwhile Wigan boss Shaun Wane takes a break from bagging his own team to heap all of the plaudits on to his opponents and their rookie coach;

"We played well in parts but you have to commend Huddersfield. They played well. Paul has done a great job and I'm really pleased for him, being an Englishman as well."

I'll bet he wasn't so pleased for him when he was stomping over everything in his way while wearing the red vee not that long ago.

Over in Bradford the Bulls are flattered by the margin of their 38-12 success over the Castleford Tigers. Brett Kearney's hat-trick is the undoubted highlight, but the game is close for a long time as the Tigers cross through Jamie Ellis and Kirk Dixon. Two of Kearney's tries come late on, with Adam Sidlow, Matty Blythe and Chev Walker also getting over the line for Francis Cummins' side;

"We're trying to score a try all the time when if we ask a few questions, we'll get there. We just need a little bit more direction at times." is Cummins' fairly critical view, while Tigers boss Ian Millward is more concerned with the performance of referee Steve Ganson, who sin-bins both Ellis and Justin Carney within a few second half minutes of each other with the game close;

"I'll have a look at everything but I was confused." says Millward;

"I'm not going to sit here and pinpoint the ones I was concerned with." he adds, rather too secretively, before reserving a little praise for his players' efforts;

"We showed some backbone and some spine. We continually repelled the opposition when we were pinned on our own line through repeat sets which is pleasing."
