Price pleased with Challenge Cup start

Wakefield Trinity Ladies’ Brooke Price was pleased to get that first victory over the line as we opened our 2022 competitive account with a derby day victory over Castleford.

Starting on the wing for the third consecutive game in a row, Price played an instrumental part in Sunday’s Challenge Cup win, in both defence and attack.

However, being at the club for several years now, Brooke was pleased to get the side over the line as she knows how much it meant to both the players and the club.

“It was a great feeling, we were all buzzing,” she explained.

“All the energy and emotion laced throughout the side was running really high and it feels like we are really bonding as a team.”

After a rebuilding period in 2021, wins have been few and far between for Wakefield, with last Sunday’s victory over Castleford being the first time we have beaten our local rivals since our introduction in 2016.

All the hard work and commitment has shown to pay off, with the first team song together as a group showing how much it meant to all the staff and players.

“We have been waiting [to sing the team song] for a long time now.

Singing the team song meant so much to the rest of the team. We all train hard, so to have it all come together was an unbelievable feeling.”

Coaches Liam Harnell and Ash Bond have created a warm and inviting atmosphere amongst the playing squad, with everyone buying into their idea and that was definitely been mirrored on the pitch.

“It was a strong game, for sure, our teamwork was pretty solid throughout.

Overall, I was pleased with my involvement in the game. I know that I still have things to work on, which will, hopefully, improve with every game.

Trinity now embark on a two-week break before we host Featherstone Rovers in the second round of our Challenge Cup group.

With a victory in the bag, Wakefield can head into the game on the 27th full of confidence, and, hopefully, make it two wins in two.

“It is always a good confidence boost. We are still growing and bonding as a team, so this just makes us more determined to work harder, dig deeper and drive ourselves forward.

“I can’t wait to get back out there [against Featherstone].

“Win or lose, there is always that desire to do better as a team, which is something we all strive for.”

Trinity Ladies are back in action next Sunday (27th March) at the Be Well Support Stadium as we host Featherstone Rovers in the Challenge Cup.
