The Warriors quickly made progress up the other end of the field, with a Harry Smith kick forcing an error from Kevin Naiqama.

From the resulting move, space opened up for Miski on the right side, allowing the winger to get his first.

Another kick from Smith nearly led to Wigan’s second of the night, with the Giants just about dealing with the situation before Jake Wardle could get onto the ball.

Ahead of the break, Peet’s side were able to extend their lead, as Miski slid in for his second try of the night and 11th in all competitions this season.

After missing his first conversion attempt, Smith made no mistake in adding the extras this time.

On the other side of half time, Jai Field added his name to the scoresheet, after dancing past the Huddersfield defence with some quick feet.

Just after the hour mark, the Warriors had their numbers reduced Temporarily, with Ethan Havard sin-binned for a shoulder charge.
