BITTERLY disappointed Giants coach Jon Sharp has today started the full inquest into yesterday's McAlpine Super League horror show.
Sharp watched his play-off chasing Giants suffer a heavy 38-6 defeat to a Wakefield side who had won just four of their top-flight matches ahead of the clash.
But on yesterday's evidence it was Huddersfield who looked like a team struggling to keep up with the Super League pace, and Sharp is wanting to know why.
"We were comprehensively beaten by a team who completely out-enthused us," said Sharp.
"I wasn't surprised by what Wakefield had to offer because they have quality players in their ranks and are always tough opponents.
"But it was made so much easier for them by the way we failed to perform.
"We have set ourselves some high standards and we fell way below those standards.
"Losing Brandon Costin so early with a hamstring/back injury didn't help us, but we didn't handle his loss well. You can't afford to do that.
"But there are a lot of issues we need to address as a result of yesterday. We intend to do that."
Sharp decided not to include new Australian signing James Evans, explaining he wanted to keep faith with the same 17 that had played so well at London the week before.
But it seems certain he will be in the side to travel to Salford next Sunday.
There was, however, better news for the Junior Academy as they beat Salford 24-4 (report tomorrow).
