Wigan cut down Giants to go clear
Shaun Wane was 'very happy' with his Wigan side's performance after Friday's 32-12 win at Super League rivals Huddersfield Giants.
The Warriors coach watched on as Josh Charnley cancelled out Jermaine McGillvary's sixth try of the season for the Giants at the Galpharm Stadium.
Sam Tomkins and Charnley put Wigan ahead, before Greg Eden touched down for Giants after the break.
However Wigan took command thanks to a brace of tries from George Carmont and one from Liam Farrell, before Jeff Lima finished the scoring for the visitors with a minute remaining.
It was revenge for Wigan, who lost the season opener against Nathan Brown's side by four points, as the win moved them two points clear of the Giants at the top of the Super League table following a nine-match winning run.
Afterwards Wane said: "I thought we scored some great tries, we had to concentrate on our defence in the first half, but to score seven tries against a team like Huddersfield - I'm a great admirer of Nathan Brown and the way he coaches - and to keep them to two, I'm fairly satisfied with that.
"The main thing is we wanted to win game more than them. The character and desire made me very happy."
