Official Report / Commentary

Nineteen-year-old Lee Kershaw scored on his Betfred Super League debut as Wakefield Trinity inflicted a ninth defeat of the season on neighbours Leeds Rhinos.

Kershaw opened the scoring in the 10th minute with a fine breakaway score and was impressive throughout as Chris Chester’s side eked out a hard-earned 26-24 victory.


Reece Lyne added to Kershaw’s score to put Wakefield 12-0 ahead, but the Rhinos responded with tries from Liam Sutcliffe and Brett Ferres to level matters up at 12-12 by half-time.

Yet Trinity were not to be denied as further tries from ex-Leeds winger Ben Jones-Bishop and full-back Max Jowitt put them on top of the visitors, who hit back through Matt Parcell and Tui Lolohea but still came away empty-handed.

Wakefield coach Chris Chester said: "This is a team that will never get beaten on effort – that was evident today and we fought to the very last minute. We had some guys who had not played first-team this year and we gave an opportunity to a young lad in Kershaw who was fantastic and certainly didn’t look out of place. He looked very strong with his carries and it’s great to be sat here as a proud coach of the Wakefield Trinity who has taken two points off Leeds Rhinos."

Leeds coach Dave Furner said: "They went 12-0 up and we did really good to come back. We spoke at half-time about sticking to the gameplan and I just thought we went away from that in the second half, in particular at the start. It wasn’t good enough and our execution on their try-line was poor. I’m disappointed and we need more actions and a bit more control from our senior players.”
