HALIFAX coach Tony Anderson blasted his side after watching them set a new Super League record of 18 successive defeats.
Their nine-try 54-6 mauling at Headingley leaves the strugglers rock-bottom of Super League with no points after their appeal earlier this week against a two-point deduction for breaking the salary cap was turned down.
"Professional pride should make players go out there and give it a go," said Anderson. "Some of our players didn't show that pride and let both me and themselves down.
"This is the lowest I have felt in my life - not just during this season. It looked like some of my side have given up."
Halifax had previously shared the record worst run of 17 defeats with the Giants.
Wigan maintained their challenge with a 28-12 success at London Broncos.
Veteran half-back Adrian Lam was the Warriors' hero at Griffin Park, scoring one try and making others for Shaun Briscoe and Martin Aspinwall.
"Adrian was very sharp tonight," said coach Stuart Raper. "He and Andrew Farrell controlled the game with their kicking."
