Sky pundits explain why this club is struggling in 2023

Wakefield Trinity sit bottom of Super League still yet to win a game after eight rounds.

In the eyes of Jon Wells it is not too early to begin worrying about relegation either because of the success Leigh Leopards have had to start the season – the team Wakefield meet this weekend.

“No I don’t think it is because of how well Leigh Leopards have started life in Super League they have put the cat amongst the pigeons,” he sad on Sky Sports.

“Wakefield certainly won’t have been expecting to trouble the Grand Final dressing rooms at the end of the year but they would have been going ‘we have Leigh Leopards and history tells us the side who goes up goes straight back down.’

“That’s not happened.”

But what has gone wrong at Wakefield this season.

Jamie Jones-Buchanan explained: “They have had a huge turn over in players. 10 debutants and 27 different players in seven rounds which is more than anyone else.

“That makes it hard. Not just when you are playing on a Thursday or a Friday but in training formulating those attacking plays to get points and field position becomes difficult.”

Jon Wells added: “You can have a look at rounds one to seven and they have had seven different combinations in eight games and five different fullbacks in eight games as well. Such a key position on both sides of the ball in the modern game.”
