Lineham Hat-trick Helps Down Trinity


Wakefield would be denied an early opportunity, Tupou deemed to have thrown a forward pass for Johnstone, from the resulting possession Warrington would open the scoring on the two minute mark, Tom Lineham on the receiving end of a perfect cut out pass to open the scoring. Goodwin hitting the post from the wing with his attempt at the sticks.

Warrington were penalised for a late shot on Wakefield's Liam Finn, Trinity would set up camp in the Warrington danger zone and Reece Lynne, selling a dummy to Lineham and diving into the corner, Wakefield unable to convert and levelling the game up at 4-4. Wire would take the lead after just 3 minutes, Lineham with a near identical effort to his first, Goodwin able to convert this time to make it 10-4 after 15 minutes. Wakefield would be penalised close to their line, Goodwin opting to shoot for the sticks to make it 12-4.

Bill Tupou would be the benefactor of some brave play by Trinity, opting to keep the ball alive and the centre would go over in  the corner, Liam Finn once more unable to find the mark with the kick leaving the score at 12-8. Tupou would once more be involved, breaking from deep and linking up with Miller who would eventually hand the ball over to Liam Finn to score the try, Finn giving Wakefield the lead with his conversion, 14-12 Wakefield. Warrington had a chance to level the score just before the halfway mark, Goodwin dragging the kick and Wakefield taking the lead into the sheds.
Warrington would make a fast start to the second 40, Bryson Goodwin hitting the gap on a short ball and racing over to put the Wolves back in front, Ratchford adding the extras to give Warrington an 18-14 lead after 42 minutes. Warrignton were dominating the second half and the scoreboard began to reflect this, a favourable bounce dropping for Mike Cooper to grab a try under the sticks, Ratchford slotting the kick to give Warrington a 24-14 lead.

Ben Murdoch-Masila would go on a solo run and be rewarded with a try, the game now starting to get further and further out of Wakefield's grasp, Ratchford taking the lead to 30-14 with another successful kick. The game was not quite dead and buried yet, Tom Johnstone would finish off a nice Wakefield move and Finn converting to bring the game to 30-20 with 13 minutes left on the clock.

Lineham would complete his hat trick with 3 minutes left to play to see out the victory for Warrington, a runaway effort as he broke from his own half and backed himself to score, Ratchford pulling the conversion just wide off the post. Wakefield would have the last say on the night, Ben Jones-Bishop crossing for nothing more than pride saver for Trinity and the game finishing up 34-24 to the Wolves.
