Mark Applegarth hopeful Trinity can “keep hold of” impressive forward

Mark Applegarth’s Wakefield Trinity have lost six from six to start the season but when asked if he still has the appetite to keep going, he was adamant he had.

“Course I have, it’s part of coaching. Life would be boring if everything went your way all the time,” he said after they lost 34-6 to Hull KR.

“Rain or shine I’ll be here giving it 100% and you know I’m like a pig in s**t with it. It’s tough, it stings but that’s how you learn a lot about yourself I think. You’ve got to put yourself out there and just plough through it but we’ll come good.

“You’ve got to have self belief first and foremost and I’ve got that, we’ll come good.”

Trinity are doing it tough with injuries at the moment and he spoke about the likelihood of returns:

“We’re always on the lookout for players coming in if they’re going to add value so there’s some reinforcements just around the corner, so as tough as it feels now we’ve got some very experienced players coming back in the next few weeks.”

Trinity have had to reply on loan signings recently and Applegarth is hopeful they can keep hold of Huddersfield Giants forward Sam Hewitt:

“I think it was signed on a week by week basis so depending on how teams are looking and how he’s fit in, which has been excellent, then you try to make it a bit more permanent from there.

“We’d be keen to keep hold of him and hopefully Huddersfield will allow that and we appreciate them letting us have him.”
