Wakefield Trinity Ladies aim to bounce back from a Round One defeat to Leigh Miners as we head across the Pennies to face Warrington at the Halliwell Jones.
Tries from Abby Price, Leonie Lawson and Saskia Lewis were not enough as Trinity Ladies fell to an opening day defeat to Leigh.
After two early scores, Lawson dragged one back for the away side. Abbie Millward offloading to Kacey Davies, who played the ball along the line to Nat Romano to send us over for our first of the Super League season.
Buoyed with confidence, Trinity soon added a second. Price kicking on the last caused a mix up in the Leigh defence, the ball was then played back inside to Trinity’s number 13 as she powered over.
A second-half try for Lewis in the last 20 minutes wasn’t enough as Leigh ran away with the game, completing a 28-14 victory.
However, that is in the past, and after a good week’s worth of training, the side is back in action and looking to score their first points of the regular season.
The Opposition: Warrington Wolves Women
Warrington Wolves Women started their Super League Group Two campaign with a 32-6 victory over Barrow Raiders last Sunday.
The side was bolstered by the signing of Amy Johnson earlier in the week, with the prop making the switch from Leeds Rhinos.
Georgia Sutherland and Michelle Davis got the side started before Barrow pulled on back. Davis then added her second of the game before the break, offering the side a commanding lead at the interval.
However, Barrow was no match for the wire in the second period, wrapping up a 26-point lead.
With pace at the back and a big pack to move them up the field, Trinity will have to be wary of the Cheshire side when we face them on Sunday.
Wakefield Trinity Ladies’ coach, Charlie Doherty, spoke to the media ahead of this weekend’s Betfred Women’s Super League clash with Warrington.
“The opener against Leigh gave us loads to think about in terms of where we need to improve.
“However, there were also quite a few positives to take from it despite the result and that’s what the focus has been on this week.
Preparation has been good [this week]. We’ve reviewed the Leigh game and had a good open and honest chat about what we need to do to be better, and I feel like that has given training a real good feeling this week, hopefully, it translates onto the pitch on Sunday.
