Wakefield 16-18 Huddersfield
MATCH SUMMARY
Albert Torren
Wakefield (16) 16:
Tries: Solomona (2), Tadulala
Goals: Jeffries
Huddersfield (8) 18:
Tries: Thorman, Snitch, Torrens
Goals: Thorman (3)
Albert Torrens kept up his record of scoring in every game this season with a last-gasp try for Huddersfield after Wakefield led for most of the match.

Two David Solomona tries gave the home side an interval lead, but he turned villain by being sin-binned.

Semi Tadulala also crossed for the Wildcats while Chris Thorman scored a try and three goals for the Giants.

Thorman also helped set up Steve Snitch to score against his old team before Torrens dived over to score at the end.


  • Huddersfield coach Jon Sharp
    "I thought Wakefield were great and we needed to be at our best to beat them.

    "I was pleased while Solomona was off we completed every set, and in the end that took its toll.

    "Both sides threw everything at each other but in the end we gradually won the arm wrestle."

  • Wakefield coach Tony Smith
    "I am proud of my guys, I felt we were the best team throughout. It just shows you can lose a game in the last minute.

    "When we were down to 12 men the momentum of the game swung their way. We hardly got over the halfway line.

    "I am gracious in defeat, sometimes it is just not meant to be."
