Wigan Warriors winger Liam Marshall scored a brace of tries in an entertaining 19-19 draw with Huddersfield Giants.

Huddersfield Giants 19-19 Wigan Warriors

The Giants extended their unbeaten run to four Betfred Super League games, while Wigan are without a win in their last eight league fixtures.
Huddersfield started the better with converted tries from centres Leroy Cudjoe and Lee Gaskell, plus a Danny Brough drop goal, only for the Warriors to respond through touchdowns from John Bateman and Marshall, with George Williams adding the extras.

Marshall’s second try gave Wigan the lead just after the break but Jermaine McGillvary replied with Brough’s conversion edging the Giants in front once more.

Williams levelled the scores with a long-range drop goal before both sides missed chances to win the game.

Wigan boss Shaun Wane said: “It was not good enough. There were too many penalties and too many errors, we didn’t give ourselves a chance to win.

“We still managed to stay in there and get a point and they are a very confident team at the moment. But overall I am not happy.”

Giants coach Rick Stone admitted afterwards: “I’m probably happy enough in the end. We had a good first 20 or 25 minutes and I thought we gave up that lead too easily through giving away too many penalties.

“There wasn’t much in it in the second half. Both sides showed plenty of desperation, desire and willingness to take the points which was good.”
