GIANTS chief Jon Sharp has once again been left seething after watching his side slump to their ninth Super League defeat of the season.
Huddersfield remain second bottom of the table after throwing away a 22-6 half-time lead to lose 36-34 to Warrington Wolves at the Millennium Stadium.
But a controversial decision by video referee Ashley Klein to allow an early second-half try to Stuart Reardon, who appeared to be held in the tackle before planting the ball on the line, sparked a Warrington fightback that turned the game on its head and left Sharp a deeply frustrated man.
“It’s tough to take,” said Sharp, whose side have been on the bitter end of a number of cruel calls this year.
“We feel hard done by. I thought we dominated the game for large parts and did enough to win.
“At 22-6 we should have won the game, and we had a golden opportunity at the start of the second half to kill Warrington off, but we failed to take it.
“They followed that up by coming straight back up the field and getting that try on the nod of the video referee.
“Like a lot of people who saw it, I had a different opinion to the fella who came up with the decision to give the try.
“I know it’s futile talking about the decision, because I have no control over the officials, but I believe it to be a really important decision.
“In the end, we didn’t get what our efforts deserved.”
