Warrington came from 14-4 down at half-time to ease to a 10th consecutive win over Huddersfield, who are still looking for their first home win of the 2014 First Utility Super League.

The Giants, who drew their first two matches at the John Smith's Stadium, looked set to end their hoodoo after an impressive first half but their second-half collapse will alarm coach Paul Anderson.

The Wolves, magnificently led by skipper Ben Westwood, dominated the second half, with full-back Matty Russell marking his first start for the club with his first try in their 33-14 victory.

Rhys Evans, Richie Myler, Westwood, Gene Ormsby and joel Monaghan also claimed tries for the Wolves, while the Giants crossed through Scott Grix and Jodie Broughton.

Hull KR recorded back-to-back wins for the first time since July with a 44-6 success over Wakefield at the KC Lightstream Stadium.

Omari Caro, Josh Hodgson and Kris Welham all grabbed a brace of tries each while Neville Costigan and Kris Keating also got over with Travis Burns kicking 12 points.

Jarrod Sammut converted Pita Godinet's late try for the Wildcats to deny the hosts a second straight shut-out.

Stand-off Kevin Brown crossed for a first-half double as Widnes had enough to hold off plucky Bradford 22-18 at The Select Security Stadium.

Brown's two tries and another from Jack Owens gave the Vikings a 16-6 half-time lead and a platform to build on in the second half.

They did not have it their own way after the break, however, as Bradford defied their off-field problems to produce a spirited comeback that might have seen them take something from the match.

Elliot Kear and Brett Kearney added converted tries to Liam Sutcliffe's score just before half-time to edge the Bulls back.

But Patrick Ah Van's try in between proved the difference as Widnes' impressive start to the season continued.
