MATCH REPORT


MATCH REPORT : Saints had four debutants in a heavily rotated side from Friday night’s derby at Wigan. Keane Gilford, Ben Lane, Ellis Archer and Rio Corkill all made their first team debuts for the Red Vee at the Totally Wicked Stadium. Wakefield took the lead in the ninth minute. The visitors were awarded a six again on the Saints line and off the back of it Corey Hall was put through a gap to score. Max Jowitt missed the conversion, 4-0. The young Saints had a good spell on the Wakefield line shortly after and the pressure paid off. On the back of a Wakefield knock on, Daniel Moss put Ben Davies through a gap to level the score. Tommy Makinson converted, 6-4. The visitors re-took the lead shortly after. Saints knocked the ball on in their own ten and a couple of tackles into the restart Trinity worked the ball to their left edge and Lewis Murphy finished spectacularly in the corner. Jowitt missed the conversion, 8-6 the visitors led. Another try followed. An error from Saints in their own half gave the visitors field position and on the last tackle a kick through wasn’t dealt with and Murphy reacted quickest to score his second. Jowitt converted, 14-6. The impressive Murphy then completed a first half hat-trick on the half hour mark. Trinity worked the ball out left again and Murphy fumbled the ball, but re-gathered it before finishing spectacularly in the corner. Jowitt was unable to convert, 18-6. A fifth Trinity try quickly followed. A break down their right wing ended with Kyle Evans finding the supporting Jowitt who just about beat Davies to the line. Former Saint, Lee Gaskell took over kicking duties and converted the try, 24-6 at the break. Saints started the second half on the front foot. Lewis Baxter went close to his first ever try for the first team but dropped the ball with the try-line just metres away. Trinity had their sixth try shortly after though. The visitors broke down the left wing with Murphy and he passed on his inside to find Gaskell who strolled over under the sticks. Gaskell converted his own try, 30-6 we trailed. Saints replied this time. A penalty took the hosts into Wakefield territory and off the back of it Moss once again found Davies with a flat pass and he crashed over from close range for his second of the afternoon. Makinson converted, 30-12 we trailed. Our third try came out minutes from the end, debutant Rio Corkill made a break down the heart of the Wakefield defence and he found Jon Bennison on his outside who strolled under the sticks. Makinson converted, 30-18. It was the visitors who grabbed the final score of the game though. A move from right to left ended with Murphy going over again for his fourth try of the afternoon. Gaskell missed the kick, 34-18. Gaskell was sent to the sin bin in the final minute for trying to slow down the play the ball as Saints camped on the Wakefield line, but it was too late as spirited young Saints were beaten 34-18. However, with Wigan losing to Hull KR, we were confirmed as League Leaders’ Shield winners which we will lift during our home game with Toulouse Olympique on Saturday afternoon.
