Red card shown for dangerous tackle as Wakefield Trinity battle Leeds Rhinos

When they led 10-0 early in the game, Wakefield Trinity looked set for a huge upset and a first win.

But they now look far away from it with Hugo Salabio sent off.

It was a dangerous tackle. After dropping the ball in an attacking opportunity he produced a dangerous tackle on Richie Myler who didn’t have the ball lifting him up and dumping him in what seemed like a wrestling move.

Wakefield scored first in the game. A kick to the corner from Will Dagger was batted back to Jack Croft completing an amazing story for the centre going from stretchered off to scoring in a week. It came after Leeds had been tackled on the last inside their own 30.

Leeds bombed a third try as they attacked the Wakefield line. They managed to create an overlap with a long ball out to Nene MacDonald. However, he dropped the ball.

Wakefield immediately punished them with a similar move of their own with Romain Franco finishing in the corner for a debut try.

It was the first time Wakefield have led by 10 points this season and the first time that they have scored first since Round One.

The upset of the season looked on but Leeds began to turn things around. Richie Myler’s dummy allowed the Rhinos halfback to cut through before finding Cameron Smith in support to score before a 40/20 from Blake Austin gave Leeds the field position to strike with Leon Ruan powering over for a debut try.

Wakefield though lead after a penalty goal from Will Dagger.
