Ahead of Wakefield Trinity’s clash with Leeds Rhinos this weekend, Mason Lino has spoken about what a win would do for the team.
He said of Wakefield’s new season:
“I’m probably disappointed so far with not being able to put points on the table, that falls on the spine and especially me being the half-back of the team so for me personally there’s probably disappointment in that area.
“I think that Wigan game what stung the most was 60, defensively we were alright last week but we couldn’t put any points on the table.
“Looking back at the clips, I know the scoreboard doesn’t show it, but there’s little tiny things that can change a lot of the outcomes. We can’t sit here next week saying we’re not far off again so we’ve got to get it clicking now.”
He also spoke about the halfbacks they will be coming up against this weekend:
“They’re both class players aren’t they [Aidan Sezer and Blake Austin]? They’ve been playing together ever since the NRL so we as a team have to try and nullify their threats and see how we go.”
On what first win will bring, he said: “I think we get a win then hopefully we get another one, so we’ve just got to get over that first hurdle.”
Lino is in the final year of his deal and says he is unsure what the future will hold:
“I definitely do want to stay in Super League, I’m not sure where I’ll be I haven’t really had those discussions yet.
“I think my main focus at this point in time is to play good football for Wakefield and hopefully everything else takes care of itself.
If he is likely to stay, Lino said: “100% yeah, if I’m enjoying my time and my family are happy then I can’t see why not. If I’m playing good football then it’s definitely an upside for it.
“It’s been real enjoyable, it’s a different style of footy and a bit more open so I enjoy it.”
