Official Report / Commentary

St Helens are 80 minutes away from a first Wembley appearance for 11 years after turning on the style against Wakefield Trinity.

Full-back Lachlan Coote scored 20 points with a try and eight goals as Saints swept aside the Yorkshiremen 48-10 in their Coral Challenge Cup quarter-final at the Totally Wicked Stadium.


There were eight different tryscorers as Justin Holbrook’s men comfortably secured a place in the semi-finals at Bolton on July 27 with an opportunity to make amends for their shock defeat by Catalans Dragons there last season.

Tommy Makinson, Morgan Knowles, Regan Grace, Zeb Taia, Mark Percival, Jonny Lomax and Kevin Naiqama also went over for Saints.

Jack Croft and Tyler Randell scored the Wakefield tries with Danny Brough adding a goal.

St Helens coach Justin Holbrook said: "To get to the semis is fantastic. It’s an opportunity to play better at Bolton and that’s our aim. It’s a long way off still but in every big game so far this year we’ve played really well. I thought we played really well last week and it was important to back it up. We didn’t start the second half too well and we had to work hard to get back control. We’re defending really well, we had some tough periods where we hung in there."

Wakefield coach Chris Chester said: "“It was one of those days. The best team won which I can cop as a coach. Saints are flying at the moment and I don’t think even with our best side we would have beaten them. They’re the best team in this competition by a long, long way and they are certainly going to take some stopping."
