Match Report

Ryan Hampshire’s 75th-minute penalty proved decisive as injury-hit Wakefield Trinity edged to a thrilling 26-25 victory at Huddersfield Giants in Betfred Super League.

The Giants were leading 25-24 after stand-off Oliver Russell landed a drop-goal but Trinity were not to be denied as Hampshire’s two-pointer earned his side the win and gave him a 10-point haul.

Wakefield raced into a 12-0 lead through Mason Caton-Brown's double before Matt Frawley crossed for the Giants, but David Fifita's converted try restored the 12-point advantage before half-time.

Huddersfield came roaring back in the second period with Jermaine McGillvary crossing twice in four minutes and Adam O'Brien also touching down, before Russell added his fourth goal.

Ben Jones-Bishop's try and Hampshire's conversion levelled things up before Russell's drop goal, but Trinity had the final say.

Wakefield coach Chris Chester said: "It’s a big win and puts us into third spot – we never know when we are beaten. We never give up and we just keep working hard.


“This is a team who are very hard-working and just doesn’t want to let me, their team-mates or the fans down. They’re a pleasure to coach and there is a hell of a lot of team spirit at this club."

Huddersfield coach Simon Woolford said: "As has happened many times this season, we capitulated. We stole defeat from the jaws of victory and have no-one to blame but ourselves.

“I’ve got total belief in this squad and there is no reason why, when we do put 80 minutes together, we can’t win games as we did last season.”
