Matty Ryan was frustrated that the Wildcats were unable to claim victory over Huddersfield Giants on Easter Monday.

Matty Ryan impressed against the Giants.

The Giants capitalised on some basic Trinity errors to score many of their points and it gave the Wildcats too big a hill to climb to end a run of defeats.

Ryan was a constant threat on the left edge inside of the equally impressive Lucas Walshaw, and whilst encouraged by some more positive signs he feels the Wildcats need to start cutting out basic errors to claim points as well as positives from their performance.

“We gave them a few too many easy tries through our errors but there’s positives to take out of it.  We get a bit of a break now and then can concentrate on our next game.

“It (the late first half tries) hurt us but we still came in at half-time thinking we had a chance.  At half-time Rich spoke to us and we all still had belief that we could come out in the half (and get the win).  We started okay but silly errors cost us.

“We can score our tries and if we can get our combinations together and start gelling as a team for the 80 minutes then we’ll worry every team in the competition but we’re just not doing that right now so it’s a bit frustrating.

“We’re building but we’ve got to stop using that as an excuse.  We’ve got to start winning these types of games and from now on that’s our mentality, we’ve got to start grinding out some victories.”

The 25-year old was one of the Wildcats most impressive performers over the Easter weekend and his efforts along with the rest of the Wildcats squad were acknowledged with a fantastic reception from the travelling fans at the full-time whistle.

Ryan thanked the fans for sticking with the team through a difficult run of results.

“The fans have been unbelievable on Friday and today, rocking up and supporting us.  There’s not much more we can to do thank them for sticking by us.  We’re trying our best out there and hopefully we can get a few wins for them soon.”
