It was a fantastic weekend for all of Wakefield’s dual registration and loan players as they all played a major part in helping their sides to victory.
The Wildcats official partner club Doncaster defeated Hunslet 30-26 as utility-back Liam Kay put in a man-of-the-match performance. The 22-year-old started the game at stand-off and scored a superb individual try in the 50th minute to put the Dons on the road to victory. Danny Cowling also started the game at centre while Kyle Trout came off the bench to put in a fine display, scoring a try in the process.
The win still leaves Doncaster with a chance of making the playoffs going into the final few games of the season.
Dewsbury scored a last gasp try to defeat York 20-16 at the Tetley’s Stadium to get them back to winning ways. Lucas Walshaw maintained his place in the starting line-up as he featured at second-row but Bobbie Goulding was forced to settle for a place on the bench. Goulding was to play a part in the success though as he slotted over two vital conversions to give Glenn Morrison’s the win.
Meanwhile on Thursday loanee Vince Mellars helped Featherstone secure a crucial 30-16 win at Halifax to put Rovers top of the Championship table. The New-Zealander played the game at centre and caused the opposition defence numerous problems throughout the game.
This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
