MATCH REPORT


MATCH REPORT : With the rain pouring down in Wakefield it was a sloppy start from Saints with a number of handling errors. The hosts had a number of early opportunities to open the scoring, but the final pass on two occasions found touch rather than the hands of either winger. But Wakefield did take the lead on 12 minutes as the ball was moved to the right and debutant Jorge Taufua found himself the extra man and went over after 12 minutes. Mason Lino’s kick struck the post and came back out. 4-0 the hosts led. Lino this time made no mistake minutes later as he kicked Trinity further ahead with a penalty. 6-0. Saints pushed for a leveller, but could not find that cutting edge in attack whilst further errors followed. Trinity made Saints pay after Jacob Miller’s 40-20 attempt was kept in play by Welsby, but in the process our number one, palmed the ball back inside and Jack Croft was there to beat Regan Grace to the ball to touch down. Again Lino’s kick struck the sticks and came back out. 10-0 Wakefield led. James Bell, off the bench for Saints drove Saints forward, five minutes before the break before Joey Lussick fed Agnatius Paasi, but he lost the ball when going for the line under a challenge from two Wakefield players. That was as good as it got for Saints in the first half. 10-0 we trailed at the break.

Saints came out on the front foot, looking to respond, but Paasi lost the ball in his own 10. Trinity won back-to-back sets before a penalty which Lino kicked from right in front to extend their lead. But Saints did get on the board on the 56th minute. Joey Lussick was held up just short, before we won a penalty and shifted the ball from the scrum to the left where Regan Grace was there to finish in the corner. Jonny Lomax converted the try brilliantly from the touchline and we were back in it at 12-6. Kristian Woolf’s men continued to push forward and were rewarded when a lovely move saw the ball worked to the right and Konrad Hurrell found Jon Bennison who went over for his third Saints try. Lomax again stepped up for the touchline conversion, and again kicked it! 12-12 with 10 minutes to go. Both sides went for one pointers late on, but to no avail and we were into golden point… Wakefield had the first drop goal attempt of golden point, but Lino’s kick drifted wide and it was left to SUPER JACK to win it for Saints as he slotted over his one pointer!
