Jon Wilkin has no sympathy for “the worst team in the competition”

On Sunday it looked like that Wakefield Trinity were about to pick up their first win of the season up against Salford Red Devils.

A Mason Lino drop goal sent the game to golden point but a crucial forward pass gave Marc Sneyd the chance to win the game with a drop goal which he nailed.

It was a heartbreaking defeat and the closest Wakefield have come to winning this season and most neutrals felt sorry for Trinity but Jon Wilkin speaking on Sky Sports said he didn’t feel for the team he describes as “the worst in the competition.”

He said: “Do I feel for them? I don’t know if I feel for them, they’re the worst team in the competition.

“Am I surprised that they’re losing games? Not really. I predicted at the start of the season that they would be in trouble and that’s the way it’s going.

“What you can say, they have a relatively inexperienced squad, inexperienced coach and despite that they have produced some really spirited displays, they’re really fighting.

“I believe it will be a challenge for them longer term to get anything out of this year but it is not a surprise that they are losing games.

“It is not comfortable to watch a team like that that are struggling so hard but realistically with the resources they have got and the situation they’re in, that will be the likely outcome for them for a number of weeks this season.”
