Wakefield had six representatives in the Northern Rail Cup over the weekend which helped Doncaster and Dewsbury to victory while Featherstone fell to defeat.
The Wildcats official partner club the Dons produced a superb performance to beat York City Knights 24-12 at the Huntington Stadium with three Trinity players on show. Danny Cowling started in the centre on the inside of Liam Kay while Kyle Trout lined up at prop for Tony Miller’s men.
Wakefield representatives started and ended the scoring for the South Yorkshire club as a first-half double by winger Kay gave them a 16-12 lead at the break while Trout wrapped up victory in the 75th minute by adding his name to the score sheet.
Progression to the quarter finals of the cup competition was also a feat matched by Dewsbury as they produced a shock in knocking Halifax out 20-18.
Lucas Walshaw started the game in the second-row while half-back Bobbie Goulding was in the halves alongside former Wildcats back Kieran Hyde. Walshaw produced a solid display throughout while Goulding kicked four successful goals from five attempts at the Tetley’s Stadium.
Elsewhere, Frankie Mariano’s Featherstone were beaten 22-12 by Leigh Centurions. The second-rower came off the bench at the Big Fellas Stadium but couldn’t help his side to victory.
This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
