It was a mixed weekend for the Wildcats players out on dual-registration and loan in the Kingston Press Championship as six Wakefield players featured for their respective teams.
Wildcats partner club Doncaster went down 24-14 away at Whitehaven as three Trinity youngsters lined up at the Recreation Ground. Danny Cowling and Kyle Trout started for Tony Miller’s men while Liam Kay appeared off the bench to score a try.
The utility back scored in the second half to pull the game back to 18-10 before two tries for the Cumbrians sealed victory to leave the Dons at the bottom of the Championship.
Dewsbury included two Wakefield loan players in their defeat at home to Workington as Bobbie Goulding and Lucas Walshaw both registered on the score board. Goulding lined up at scrum-half and kicked two out of three goals for Glenn Morrison’s men.
Second-rower Walshaw gave the Rams a first half lead when he went over with his Trinity partner adding a simple conversion but Workington ran out 18-16 winners.
Elsewhere, Frankie Mariano made his Featherstone debut in an impressive 40-18 victory over table-toppers Halifax. The back-rower came off the bench to score in the 34th minute as Rovers consolidated their place at second in the table.
In Championship 1, Wakefield’s partner club Oxford beat Oldham 18-16 and are two points of Hemel Stags and North Wales Crusaders who are leading the way in the division.
This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
