Match Report

Wakefield Trinity overcame a succession of injury blows to claim a remarkable 30-20 victory over Wigan Warriors that strengthened their position in the top five of Betfred Super League.

Chris Chester’s side have hit form following an inconsistent start to the year but they were pushed to the limit on Friday after losing Anthony England, Reece Lyne, Jacob Miller and Kyle Wood to injury.

That they still managed to record a third straight win said as much about Wigan, the Super League champions slumping to a seventh defeat of the season.

In-form winger Joe Burgess’ 100th career try appeared enough to send the Warriors into the break with a hard-earned lead until Wakefield blitzed their visitors in a devastating four-minute spell.

Craig Kopczak ended Wigan’s resistance on their own line and Joe Arundel finished a fine move before Max Jowitt raced clear to make it 16-4 as the half-time hooter sounded.

Ben Jones-Bishop ended his long wait for his first try of 2019 and then added a second to finish the Warriors off, ensuring George Williams’ effort and Burgess’ hat-trick were in a losing cause.
