Wakefield Trinity boss Willie Poching slams ‘unacceptable’ result and apologises to fans following Salford Red Devils drubbing

If you have been keeping an eye on Super League results today, you will have noticed one quite incredible result that came out this afternoon.

Salford Red Devils put 70 points past Wakefield Trinity in a 74-10 hammering, despite the West Yorkshire side taking a 6-0 lead in the opening few minutes.

It was even more incredible considering that both teams were on ten points going into this game and Wakefield head coach Willie Poching was disappointed to say the least following such an eventful game, with the former Leeds Rhinos forward apologising to the Trinity supporters that made the trip to the AJ Bell Stadium.

“Before we start, it’s only right that I apologise to our travelling fans and what we’ve dished up today,” Poching told¬†BBC Radio Leeds.

“It could have been easy for those that came to leave early, but they stuck by us and stuck with us even though we churned out what we did.

“It wasn’t acceptable and it wasn’t good enough and we owe them more than what we gave today.”

Poching believes that his side needs to work harder to get results and that his players were far off it.

“We’ve got to be workmanlike and we as a team and squad we need a good high percentage of those on the field to be performing well.

“Unfortunately we had a high percentage that didn’t quite perform well.”

Wakefield’s next opponents will not exactly help Poching, either, with Wigan Warriors set to be the next visitors to Belle Vue next weekend.
