Official Report / Commentary

Wakefield Trinity went fifth in the Betfred Super League table as Bill Tupou’s double led them to a 32-12 win over Hull FC at the KCOM Stadium.

The Tongan winger touched down in both halves but suffered a leg injury after his second try on a night when Trinity also lost Tom Johnstone to what could be a recurrence of a knee injury, which led to a lengthy stoppage towards the end of the first half.

Ryan Hampshire, Pauli Pauli and Reece Lyne also crossed for Wakefield with Danny Brough kicking three conversions and three penalties.

The home side were bidding for a fourth straight win after ending their 13-match losing streak which stretched back well into last season but found Wakefield too strong.

Danny Houghton and Bureta Faraimo scored Hull’s tries late in the first half and two conversions by Marc Sneyd brought them within two points at the break but Wakefield scored freely in the second period to record a comfortable win.

Wakefield coach Chris Chester said: "That’s the best victory since I’ve been in charge here. Seeing what we have had to go through during the game. Losing two key players.

“It’s been a special night, I’m really proud of the boys. I thought in defence we were really good. We had to because they like to shift the ball around a lot. I thought our game management when we went down to 12 men was good.”

On the injuries, Chester added: "It’s a little bit early yet. Bill has a knee injury. Tom felt something go as he stepped off his foot. Bill’s is as serous as Tom’s and we will know more in the next 48 hours.”

Hull coach Lee Radford said: "That was nowhere near the standard of what we have done for five weeks previous. It was a bit like the atmosphere with the fans, you could hear a pin drop.

“The performance reflects that. You’ve got to give them something to cheer about.”
