Paul Aiton was brutally honest in his assessment of the Wildcats defeat to Warrington Wolves, admitting that the team let themselves down.
Trinity were level at the break against one of the competitions best sides and although behind after an hour were very much in the game.
However, a poor final quarter of the match saw the Wolves tear into the Wildcats, leading Richard Agar to say he was ‘dismayed’ by what his side produced in the final twenty minutes.
Aiton says no longer can the Wildcats only perform in patches.
“We couldn’t have been happier with the first half but there’s only so much we can take out of it,” said the hooker.
“But there’s been a few games now where we’ve let ourselves down in the second half and it’s pretty much individually.
“We came in at half-time and there were still a few things that we had to fix up. We went out there and we didn’t fix those things up.
“We were pretty happy with the first sixty but the disappointment is there because we need the points and we let ourselves down again.
“It’s just not good enough and we’re going to have to fix that up. We can’t be happy with first half performances anymore, not that we ever were.
“We need to win and we need to finish the second half off.”
