It was a disappointing weekend for the Wildcats youngsters on dual-registration and loan in the Kingstone Press Championship as Doncaster and Dewsbury fell to defeat.
Wakefield’s partner club the Dons suffered a 28-12 home defeat to Featherstone Rovers at the Keepmoat stadium with Wildcats trio Danny Cowling, Kyle Trout and Matty Wildie starting the game.
Centre Cowling opened the scoring after nine minutes in south Yorkshire after former Wildcat Paul Cooke played in the youngster to score. That was the only time Tony Miller’s men led the game after the visitors scored five tries.
Trout started the game from loose-forward while Wildie started in the halves alongside Cooke in defeat for Doncaster.
Meanwhile, Rams loanees Lucas Walshaw and Bobbie Goulding fell to Dewsbury’s fifth straight league defeat.
Walshaw lined up in the second-row with Goulding at scrum-half as he also landed two goals with the boot in difficult conditions with York running out 29-20 victors.
Wakefield’s Championship 1 partner club Oxford were beaten 22-20 against South Wales Scorpions in an exciting fixture while Saturday’s opponents Hamel Stags beat Gateshead 21-20.
The home game at Pennine Way was excellent preparation for the test against Richard Agar’s men after a late drop goal by Mike Bishay won the game for the southerners.
