Wakefield Trinity are still waiting for their first win of the season.
Tonight they came up short against Hull FC despite a valiant effort.
Speaking after the game, Trinity boss Mark Applegarth gave his assessment of the defeat on Sky Sports after the game.
“I think the fans have pushed us every week, I feel like a broken record but it’s frustrating.
“I know we were 6-0 down at half time but we were well in front in terms of the play count and things like that.
“We just talked about composure, keeping our foot on their throat and wearing their middles out and then we’d get joy as the half went on but we did the complete opposite. That’s the frustrating part of it all.”
He explained that it was composure that let them down:
“We’re just lacking a lot of composure at the minute and it’s something that we need to carry on working on, it’s disappointing because I thought this was the game that maybe we’d put them lessons into practice but we’ve come up short again.”
He revealed he would remind the players to stick together:
“You’ve got to stay together through these tough times, it defines you as people how you respond to these adversities.
“What we say in terms of personal performances will stay personal but as a group we’ve got to learn lessons, there’s no point not being honest with each other about where we’ve gone wrong.”
