HUDDERSFIELD Giants' tough start to the Senior Academy season continued with a heavy 62-16 defeat to an impressive Wigan side.
Inspired by vastly-experienced Super League star Danny Orr, the Warriors produced a superb all-round display to make it three defeats on the trot for the visitors.
The Giants did look solid early on and were still in touch at half-time at 24-16.
But after the break, Wigan turned on the style to leave the Giants well adrift.
Stand-off Orr led the charge with two tries, while Darryl Goulding and Lee Mossop also scored twice.
Other tries came from David Small, Eamon O'Carroll and John Walker, with Dean Hatton landing five goals and Small two.
On a tough day for the Giants, centre Mat Gardner showed up well with a well-taken try to reward his efforts.
Fellow Super League squad man Bolu Fagborun also crossed for a score, along with hooker Peter Robinson.
Danny Garside added two goals.
