Official Report / Commentary

Wakefield Trinity gave their top-four aspirations a timely boost as Jacob Miller pulled the strings to inspire them to a 54-18 victory over Hull KR.

After winning only one of their previous eight Betfred Super League fixtures, Wakefield's season needed the kind of clinical performance they delivered in sweltering conditions.

Rovers made a positive start but needed tries from Chris Clarkson and Adam Quinlan to draw level at 12-12 after Matty Ashurst and Tom Johnstone had scored against the run of play.

Tyler Randell put Wakefield back ahead before half-time and Trinity dominated after the break, Scott Grix scoring twice either side of efforts from Ben Jones-Bishop and Johnstone.

Kieren Moss marked his debut in the competition with a try but Wakefield completed a record Super League win over Rovers as Anthony England touched down and Johnstone completed his hat-trick.

Chris Chester insists he is looking down rather than up at the top four.

“It’s going to be very, very difficult for us to get into that top four,” he said.

“Top six is probably realistic where we are at the minute. We’ll just keep working hard and hopefully now we can put some wins together.

“Our ball control won us the game today. I think we went 19 from 19 sets in terms of completion. We’re a team that need to complete high to win games.

“In terms of confidence that result will do us the world of good. That’s the best 40 minutes we’ve played this season.

“But I don’t think the scoreline reflected how tough the game was and the effort from Hull KR.

“I’m pleased we got the result and it makes that gap a little bit bigger to the teams underneath us.”

Hull KR head coach Tim Sheens was left to reflect on a vital moment just before half-time when Salter had an effort in the corner ruled out.

“The first half we were in battle with them and in fact had a try taken off us that was a try in my opinion,” he said.

“It would have been 18-16 if not 18-18 and that makes a difference. You look back and say that didn’t make a difference but those things do.”
