Wakefield Emphatically Seal Super League Spot


Lee Radford”s apology for this hull performance was well intended because make no mistake about it Radford is a far better coach than this utter capitulation at the hands of Wakefield would suggest. 72-10 was a really big defeat with an outrageously good wakefield team confirming their super 8 position . There is also little doubt that on this performance at least Wakefield will be able to rock the boat substantially against even the best teams . For Hull this record super league defeat can be explained in part by a long list of injuries but on paper at least their team looked capable . The wakefield performance was characterised by some beautiful rugby league with firstly Tom Johnstone taking a perfectly timed long ball to go over without a finger being laid on him. This was followed by a rampaging David Fifita scattering defenders and showing a remarkable turn of speed to score from 50 meters out. Further first half scores came from Jacob Miller, Pauli Pauli, Reece Lyne and James Batchelor the best for me being the huge effort from young Australian powerhouse Pauli who seemed to be surrounded by half of the hull team and yet still managed to ground the ball. Reece Lyne was also highly impressive with his own score and his deceptive run to set up James Batchelor for a half time score of 38-0. Trinity fans were in wonderland when speed machine Ben Jones bishop took full advantage of a hull error early in the second half to run fifty meters to the line. This was followed by some really top class scores from Jones Bishop, Miller, Lyne, Pauli and jowitt characterised by some mesmerising passing and outstanding support play To their credit Hull came back with two late tries against a tiring Trinity defence but this game was all about a very good Wakefield Trinity team with special mention to Ryan Hampshire who kicked 24 points and Jacob miller who was at the centre of everything Coach Radford may well be critical of some woeful defence at times but Hull are a better team than this score would suggest. Wakefield: Jowitt, Jones-Bishop, Lyne, Tupou, Johnstone, Miller, Hampshire, Hirst, Randell, Fifita, Ashurst, Batchelor, Horo. Replacements: Wood, Pauli, Huby, Arona. Hull: Shaul, Faraimo, Logan, Tuimavave, Talanoa, Abdull, Sneyd, Matongo, Houghton, Taylor, Hadley, Turgut, Westerman.
