Wakefield Trinity Wildcats won the Carnegie Nines Plate after defeating Warrington Wolves in the final.

The Wildcats took the Plate Final victory over Warrington Wolves.

A hat-trick from Sam Fletcher led the Wildcats to a 28-6 victory over the Wolves at Headingley Carnegie.

Glenn Morrison’s team had their eleven game winning streak ended at the quarter-final stage by eventual Cup winners Cumbria who saw off the Wildcats 10-0 despite a promising start in which the Wildcats dominated early territory.

That result saw Trinity enter the Plate semi-final where they faced London Broncos, the side from the capital having been beaten by Leeds Rhinos in their own quarter-final.

Wakefield cruised through that match as Sam Parkin, Kieran Hyde and Liam Kay all went over the whitewash before Omari Caro responded for the visitors, with the last word going to winger Sam Fletcher for an 18-4 success.

After last year’s Cup winners Warrington were knocked out along with tournament favourites Wigan Warriors, those two sides played out a tight semi-final which the Wolves edged to earn a spot in the final.

Fletcher’s triple strike plus scores for Liam Kay and Ryan Wright saw the Wildcats in control from the outset as Matty Wildie stepped up to be presented with the plate from rugby league legend Martin Offiah.

Cumbria ultimately claimed glory in the Cup final with a win over Featherstone Rovers and London Broncos speedster Caro took the honour of Rugby League’s Fastest Man 2012.

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
