LYNE GROWING IN CONFIDENCE

posted on 19 August 2013


Reece Lyne says the Wildcats are frustrated with gifting opposition teams possession through basic errors.

Reece Lyne scored a sensational 80 metre try for the Wildcats.

The defeat to St. Helens on Sunday was another case of what might have been for the Wildcats as an error ridden showing didn’t allow much opportunity to stamp their authority on the game.

Lyne was one of the Wildcats top performers, scoring a memorable 80 metre try but like the rest of the squad, he was left to rue more costly errors.

“It’s becoming a bit of a habit really and it’s frustrating.  We’re giving too many errors away.  We’re sticking in there but there’s too many errors and we’re killing ourselves.  And poor starts just don’t help.

“When you’re dropping ball and having to defend all the time it soon takes it out of you.  We need to fix it up.  The spirit and the commitment is there, we just have to improve those little things.”

After impressing in pre-season and the early parts of the campaign, injury forced Lyne out of the team and he has taken time to get back to some of that early season form.

A recent run of matches in the side have seen him impress and his try was the highlight, getting on the outside of Jonny Lomax and showing enough speed to race to the corner.

The former Hull FC man says he is feeling more positive about his game and says the team are aiming to spoil the Huddersfield Giants party in their next match in just under two weeks time.

“I’m getting a good run of games so my confidence is building and the big thing for me is getting that consistency level of performance at this level.  It’s what I’m striving to do.

“We’re trying to keep as positive as we can.  We’ve got a big game next against Huddersfield on Sky.  We’re a tight bunch and we stick together but we’re straight with each other and know if the performance wasn’t good enough.

“It’s a big game for them because if they win they can take the League Leaders title but we’re looking to go there and spoil the party.  It would be a big scalp for us.”

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
