Trinity 33-22 Salford

Four first-half tries set Trinity on their way to a 33-22 victory over Salford Red Devils on Sunday afternoon.

Big men David Fifita and Pauli Pauli were influential all afternoon for Trinity and tries from the pair, plus Ryan Hampshire and Reece Lyne’s efforts, put Wakefield in control at half-time, leading 24-10.

Salford constantly threatened throughout the afternoon and made it uncomfortable for Chirs Chester’s men. They scored some easy-on-the-eye tries with Niall Evalds, Kris Welham, Derrell Olpherts and Jackson Hastings getting over.

Despite the visitors’ flurry of points in the second-half, Jacob Miller’s try from Danny Brough’s classy reverse kick was enough to see Trinity home.

Brough’s game management was particularly pleasing for Chris Chester as the scrum-half kicked five goals and a drop-goal in a gritty Trinity win.
