Wakefield Trinity Ladies kick off a blockbuster day of Rugby League as we host Castleford Tigers Women at the Be Well Support Stadium.
Wakefield Trinity Ladies were last in action over three weeks ago as we headed to Featherstone in the Betfred Women’s Super League.
However, it wasn’t Trinity’s Day in the end, and, despite a magic Abbie Millward try, it was the Flatcappers who took the victory on the day.
With that being said, Trinity has had three solid weeks of training, and having already beaten Sunday’s opponents already this season, Charlie Doherty’s side will be hoping for victory.
The Opposition: Castleford Tigers Women
Much like Trinity, Castleford Tigers have had a difficult start to life in 2022, falling to defeat in every match so far this season.
However, Matty Faulkner’s side has improved over recent weeks, Verity Randall and Courtney Evans touching down for the side in their last outing as the Fords fell to a 46-10 defeat to Barrow.
With the two sides looking to get their first victory of the season, derby day on Sunday will be a scintillating affair.
Speaking ahead of Sunday’s game, Wakefield Trinity Ladies’ head coach, Charlie Doherty, is looking forward to the Castleford test.
“For around 40/50 minutes against Featherstone, we looked good. Especially in the first half, where we built a lot of pressure. I think they’ve shown themselves that if they can put that performance in for the full game they can compete and turn out real good performances.
“It’s the local derby so we expect them to throw everything they’ve got at us. They’ve got some big forwards, so we’re expecting a good battle in the pack.
“We need to be a little bit safer with the ball than we have been in recent games and build pressure like we did against Featherstone. If we do that, I think we’ve got every chance.”
