Rugby League News: Hull Kingston Rovers Dominate Wakefield Trinity While Warrington Wolves Remain Undefeated in Friday’s Super League

Match Report: Warrington Wolves make it six wins from six in the 2023 Betfred Super League season

In a dominant display at the Mend-a-Hose Jungle, Warrington Wolves recorded another emphatic win over Castleford Tigers, keeping a clean sheet in the process. Led by a bruising front row and anchored by the brilliant ball-handling of try-scorers George Williams and Matt Dufty, the visitors simply had too much for a Cas side for whom last week’s stirring win over Leeds was rendered a distant memory. Two tries from Matty Russell set Warrington on their way to making it six wins from six, capping off a seven-try romp for Daryl Powell’s men who continue to look unrecognisable to the side that had laboured to an ignominious 11th-place finish last season. Sam Kasiano, Thomas Mikaele and Paul Vaughan all crossed for tries too. Twitter Due to your consent preferences, you’re not able to view this Privacy Options

Hull Kingston Rovers inflict another defeat on Wakefield Trinity

Hull KR got back to winning ways as they inflicted another defeat on winless Wakefield Trinity. Two tries from Tom Opacic helped snap a three-game losing streak for the Robins, while outside backs Sam Wood, Louis Senior, and Opacic all crossed in the first half. Mikey Lewis and Elliot Minchella went over in the rainy second period along with the Australian centre to get Willie Peters’ side back to winning ways. The seven-try win was Hull KR’s third of the season, with Trinity still searching for their first win of 2023 after suffering a sixth consecutive defeat. Trinity bagged a try through Jai Whitbread in the 59th minute, converted by Mason Lino, but it proved scant consolation as they remained bottom of the Super League table. “We need a bit of self-belief and accountability,” Wakefield head coach Mark Applegarth said. “Sometimes you have to take it on the chin. We’ll have a look that we’ve prepared the players properly, from a game plan point of view. Of course, I still have the appetite to coach. Rain or shine, I’ll be here giving it 100 percent. Yes, it’s tough, yes, it stings, but that’s how you learn. We’ll come good.”
