There was disappointment for the Wildcats representatives in the Kingstone Press Championship as Wakefield’s partner club Doncaster fell to a 14-6 defeat at Swinton.
Trinity back Liam Kay returned to action at Leigh Sports Village and played in the centres in the absence of Danny Cowling.
Cowling has been in fine form for the Dons since he was placed on dual-registration but was needed by head coach Richard Agar over the weekend and was the Wildcats 18th man in the defeat to St. Helens on Friday night.
In a close encounter the Dons went behind before pulling it back to 6-6 as the Lions led 12-6 at the break. A penalty by Ryan Show effectively killed the game off as the hosts ran out winners.
Meanwhile, Lucas Walshaw played for Dewsbury in a disappointing 36-6 home defeat to Leigh. The Rams conceded six tries and only managed one score themselves.
Glenn Morrison’s young outfit struggled against their more experienced counterparts and drop down to sixth position in the Championship, Doncaster are eighth.
This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
