Rhinos edge narrow win over Trinity

Rhinos edge narrow win over Trinity

Wakefield Trinity 26-28 Leeds Rhinos

Kallum Watkins scored two tries as Betfred Super League champions Leeds Rhinos inflicted a fifth straight defeat on Wakefield Trinity by edging a thriller 28-26.

The Rhinos captain had come in for some criticism after his side had failed to win recent close games on goal kicks but his late touchline conversion proved the difference in an enthralling contest at Belle Vue.

Watkins had earlier opened the scoring on his 200th Super League appearance but Wakefield deservedly led at the break thanks to tries from Jacob Miller and Kyle Wood.

Matty Ashurst put Trinity back in control after Ash Handley’s eighth try in five games, only for Watkins and Brad Singleton to touch down to give the Rhinos a 22-20 lead in the closing stages.

Watkins added the extras to Josh Walters’ try to seemingly secure the points for Leeds but they had to withstand a frantic final minute following Max Jowitt’s try.

Leeds head coach Brian McDermott said: “It was a hard-fought win. There were so many ebbs and flows in the game, I should imagine it would have been a really good game to watch.

“I thought that was a really significant win to build a team’s personality, character and an identity. Wins like this are big for that.”

Wakefield head coach Chris Chester said: “We’re our own worst enemies right now. That’s five losses on the bounce and it’s not a good place to be in.

“But there are lots of things we can be positive about. We’re all frustrated because we know we could have won that game. We know we’re not a million miles away but I can’t keep saying the same things week in, week out.”
