Wakefield Trinity put on a mesmerising display, led by the outstanding performance of Innes Senior, who scored four tries, propelling the team to an astonishing 42-6 triumph over Warrington Wolves.
Senior, signing for the fourth time in four years has been a crucial addition until the end of the season, and his impact was evident from the start. His first-half hat-trick provided the home side with a commanding 22-0 lead at halftime.
The entire team showed fantastic form, and the scoreline reflected their dominance. Max Jowitt played a pivotal role, not only scoring a try himself but also contributing four crucial assists. Kevin Proctor, Liam Hood, and Tom Lineham also showcased their talents, each crossing the whitewash.
Trinity’s Be Well Support Stadium has proven to be a fortress, witnessing three consecutive home victories against tough opponents like Leeds Rhinos, Salford Red Devils, and Wigan Warriors in recent weeks. The passionate support from the fans has created a cauldron-like atmosphere, boosting the team’s performance.
After a disappointing defeat against Huddersfield and a week off due to the Challenge Cup semi-finals, Trinity returned to their home turf to face Warrington under the guidance of Daryl Powell.
The morale among the team received a boost with some new signings in the past week. Innes Senior’s loan signing until the end of the season injected enthusiasm into the club, as he had previously played for them in 2020, 2021, and now in 2023.
Senior wasted no time making an impact in his familiar colours, scoring a quickfire try thanks to a well-executed move, orchestrated by Max Jowitt. Kevin Proctor also scored his first try for Trinity, while Innes continued to add to his tally.
Samisoni Langi’s powerful break from the left flank allowed Jowitt to set up Senior’s second try, showcasing great teamwork. Max’s brilliance in the attack was further demonstrated as he sent Senior over for his third try just before the halftime whistle, securing Trinity’s control of the game.
Warrington managed to break Trinity’s defence early in the second half, with Paul Vaughan scoring their only try. However, Trinity responded swiftly, with Tom Lineham adding to his recent impressive form, courtesy of a well-timed pass from Mason Lino.
As the second half progressed, Trinity’s pressure continued to mount, resulting in further tries. Liam Hood found an opening at dummy half to touch down, and another precise pass from Jowitt enabled Senior to complete his remarkable four-try feat.
The home side’s attack remained relentless, and Jowitt capped off his outstanding performance with a try just before the final whistle, sealing the 42-6 victory.
Following this remarkable result, Trinity draws level on points with Castleford ahead of their encounter on 18th August. However, their focus now shifts to the upcoming clash against Hull FC in East Yorkshire, where they aim to maintain their winning momentum.
