Centre Lucas Walshaw was pleased to end a losing streak in style after a stirring fightback against Hull FC.

Lucas Walshaw got over the whitewash in the second half.

Trinity were staring down the barrel of seven straight defeats at 16-0 down after 50 minutes but fought back to run out 23-16 winners, Walshaw crossing for a try after great work from Danny Washbrook having initially been denied a score in the first ten minutes.

“It’s not bad a bad way to end a losing streak at all,” said Walshaw after the match.

“All the lads dug in and stuck to what we were doing and came up with the win.  We were upbeat about the game at half-time despite being 12-0 down, it was a close first half.  We knew that if we could stay in that arm wrestle we would be able to take it so we came out with our heads high and got the result.

“Their third try did fuel the fire a little bit but we knew we still had to do some things better.  We all dug in for each other and managed to turn it around.  I was buzzing with my try and should have had two to my name but it wasn’t to be.  It’s a lot easier in the centre than second-row or prop so I enjoyed it.

“Our key players stood up when you think of Sykesy with the drop goal and Jarrod with the match winning try and kicking his goals so we’re pleased to come away with two points.”
