Scintillating Trinity thrash Warrington

Wakefield Trinity produce a scintillating performance as four tries from Innes Senior inspires Trinity to an unbelievable 42-6 victory over Warrington Wolves.

Signing for the fourth time in as many years, Senior is Trinity’s until the end of the season, and how glad we are. A first-half hat-trick from the winger set the home side on their way as we led 22-0 at the interval.

We were fantastic, and the scoreline reflected it. Max Jowitt produced an incredible display to pick up four assists and a try as Kevin Proctor, Liam Hood & Tom Lineham all found their way over the whitewash.

With three wins in the last three at home, Trinity’s Be Well Support Stadium has played a pivotal part in recent results, supporters creating a cauldron-like atmosphere, which has seen off Leeds Rhinos, Salford Red Devils and Wigan Warriors in as many weeks.

Following the defeat against Huddersfield & a week off due to the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup, Trinity found them on home soil once again, this time meeting Daryl Powell’s Warrington.

A few new signings in the past week seemed to have kept spirits high amongst all connected to the club, Senior signing on loan until the end of the season, meaning that the winger has played in 2020, 2021 & 2023 for the club.

It didn’t take the 23-year-old long to re-open his account in Red, White & Blue, a quickfire try sending Trinity on their way. Following a lovely move through hands, the left edge working in perfect sync with each other, Jowitt jammed into the line to feed the ball through hands to Senior, who acrobatically started our afternoon.

A first in Trinity colours soon followed for Proctor as he took a short pass close to the Warrington line to power his way over before Innes added to his tally.

A powerful break from Samisoni Langi on the left saw the centre race through the Warrington defence. The ball was then fed through to Jowitt before good hands from Senior saw him compose himself and finish expertly, once again. Max wasn’t done and was pulling the strings in attack as the fullback sent Senior over again, playing a lovely pass close to the Wire line as the winger dotted down his third of the day to give Trinity full control at the break.

Despite their first-half dominance, it was the away side who opened the scoring in the second period, Paul Vaughan finding his way over the line in the opening minutes.

That didn’t deter Trinity away from the task at hand, however, as Lineham added his second in as many games. With confidence running through his veins, the winger took his try exceptionally well, Mason Lino finding the space to send over a beautifully timed cut-out pass, with Tom able to touch down.

Looking good for their lead, Trinity continued to pile on the pressure well into the second half, this time Hood finding some space at dummy-half to touch down before another cut-out pass from Jowitt sent Senior over for his fourth.

With the attack ice cold and the defence red hot, it was only a matter of time before the home side added another, Jowitt turning his assists into tries as he touched down with just seconds remaining on the clock, giving Trinity a 42-6 victory.

Following today’s result, Trinity draw level on points with Castleford ahead of the side’s meeting on 18th August. However, our attention shifts to Hull FC as we travel to East Yorkshire a week on Sunday.
