WARRINGTON Wolves’ academy side continued their winning run on home soil this afternoon.

Huddersfield Giants were thrashed 52-14 at Victoria Park to make it six consecutive victories for Richard Marshall’s side.

Impressive scrum-half Leon Hayes notched a try, two assists and eight conversions, with forwards Adam Holroyd and Ashley Barnes crossing for two tries each.

Wingers Ewan Smith and Josh Lynch, hooker Aiden Doolan and full-back Noah Booth also crossed for a try apiece in an ultimately comfortable Wire victory.

The first half was played almost exclusively in the Huddersfield half, with Hayes forcing several repeat sets with his kicking game.

His platform was set by a solid middle unit, with starting front-rowers Bobby Shingler and Jamie Reddecliff setting the tone.

The fact the score was so close for much of the half was largely down to some brave defence from the visitors, but they were prized open on three occasions before the break.

When Lewis Hughes’ chip to the corner was allowed to bounce, Smith won the contest for the ball to mark his debut for the academy side with a try.

Huddersfield did hit straight back with Darius Carter profiting from an error on the Wire try line to touch down, but further chances to score were few and far between for the visitors before the interval.

Instead, Warrington continued to dominate and while the try that took them back into the lead had a touch of fortune about it – Holroyd touching down after Hayes’ kick came back off the post – it was certainly deserved.

Having caused chaos with the boot, Hayes then showed his inventive passing game with a clever reverse pass for Hughes, in off the left wing, to crash over and give the half-time score a more accurate look.

There was potential for a wobble as Huddersfield started the second half well – full-back Ethan Wainwright crossing after decent ball movement to the right – but that only served to spark the hosts into life.

Hayes got the try his display deserved, chasing his own low kick through to score, before interchange prop Barnes made his mark.

A powerful barge through the middle to score was followed by him crossing untouched from a flat Ben Hartill pass to all but secure the win.

As Huddersfield tired, the hosts took full advantage and hit the 40-point mark through Holroyd, who burst through the line and rolled over to score his second.

Jack Billington powered over for a consolation effort for the visitors but the game had long since been lost, with Doolan crossing under the posts before perhaps the most eye-catching try of the lot.

Smith burst through the line and drew the full-back before handing on for Booth to walk in the game’s final score.
