Nick Scruton believes the performance against Hull FC was another sign of the Wildcats coming together as a team.

Nick Scruton took positives from the draw with Hull FC.

Scruton’s try in the final ten minutes seemingly had Trinity destined for a third successive victory, only to see it snatched from them by the boot of Joe Westerman as he converted Kirk Yeaman’s try with the last kick of the game.

After a disrupted first half of the season with injuries and a raft of late arrivals, the Wildcats are now unbeaten in three matches and the prop felt it was a showing that highlights how the men in red, white and blue are becoming a more cohesive unit.

“It was a game not that we worried about, but the first two games after Webbo comes in then there’s a new buzz about the place with a new coach.  It’s easy after that third game for that to drift away and people to start slacking off but I think we’ve shown that we’ve really turned a corner.

“We’re a proper side now and there’s people putting the effort in for each other and we definitely showed that today.

“When you score with three minutes to go then you should be tough enough to see the game out.  In the immediate aftermath we feel like it’s a point lost but I think when we sit back and have a good look at the video, we’ve come from behind and shown some great character.

“People have absolutely run themselves into the ground so I think when we look at the video it’s more of a point gained because there were some big efforts out there.
