Huge Wakefield Trinity away support revealed and applauded by rivals

Wakefield Trinity players clap their fans

Doncaster RLFC shared a message with travelling Wakefield Trinity supporters after Trinity won 42-6 at the Doncaster Community Stadium.

Despite their promising start to the season, the Dons were soundly defeated by a Luke Gale-inspired Trinity side that looks on course to challenge for the title,

Following the game, Wakefield shared a tweet which included a message from the Doncaster club.

The message read: “Can I put on record how much of a pleasure it was to host the Wakefield support, who numbered 1,385.

“They were a delight to have at our stadium, and numerous members of staff have commented on how polite, respectful, good-humoured and gracious the Wakefield supporters were.

“They were a credit to their club, and we would be delighted to welcome them back at any time.”

It’s excellent to hear positivity about rugby league fans, but equally, it’s an incredibly impressive number of away fans.

The overall attendance was announced as 2,520, meaning over half the fans in attendance were part of Wakefield’s travelling support.

Wakefield Trinity have started their season excellently, with three wins from three.

They started the season off with a huge 42-12 victory over former Super League stalwarts Bradford Bulls in front of a crowd of 7,221 at Belle Vue.

Another victory came in what many expected to be a top-of-the-table four-pointer against Featherstone Rovers, where Post Office Road was treated to an exciting 20-12 victory for Trinity.

The comfortable win against Doncaster made it six points from a possible six in the RFL Championship.

They also stand just 80 points from a Wembley final, with an 1895 Cup semi-final at Odsal to look forward to in May after finishing top in the group stage and beating Barrow Raiders in the quarter-final.

A 110-0 win away at Newcastle Thunder set a club-record margin of victory and number of points.

Trinity were, however, beaten by Featherstone Rovers in a mud bath Challenge Cup game, where they were defeated 14-10.
