Meanwhile, August has been a month where Richard Agar’s men have a 100% record after beating Castleford, Trinity continued the momentum by dramatic one point wins over St Helens and Hull KR.
In those three victories there were some fantastic scores and the nominations for the August Kitchen by Design Try of the Month are as follows, with you able to watch the nominees HERE:
A. Lee Smith Vs St Helens
The centre scored a crucial try in the victory at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium and it was certainly one to savour for the Wildcats faithful. Ben Cockayne picked the ball up in his own in goal before bursting clear, only to be tackled just short of half way. Then an Ali Lauitiiti charge made good ground before offloading to Smith who produced a mesmerising curved run to finish in the far corner.
B. Tim Smith Vs Castleford Tigers
Tim Smith helped Trinity off to a superb start at the Probiz Coliseum and he grabbed a try of his own after Kyle Wood passed to the Australian, he dummied and barged his way over two Castleford defenders, including full-back Richard Owen to extend the lead.
C. Lee Smith Vs Castleford Tigers
With the score at 28-0, the Wildcats had no intention of letting up and Wood once again found Tim Smith as the half-back kicked through on the 20 metre line and the ball bounced up for his namesake Lee Smith to collect and dive over the try line in front of the travelling supporters.
D. Peter Fox Vs Hull KR
The winger scored a crucial try on the half time hooter at MS3 Craven Park to help change the momentum in East Hull. A penalty was taken quickly by Cockayne and with seconds left on the clock the ball found Tim Smith who kicked precisely to Peter Fox who finished in the corner.
E. Kyle Wood Vs St Helens
When Kyle Wood stepped into dummy half 12 metres out with the score tied at 26-26 there looked little danger for the Saints defence. But a sublime step off his left foot bamboozled Mike Rush’s men with the young hooker sliding over next to the uprights.
