Wakefield Trinity result shockingly ends 110-0

Wakefield Trinity took on Newcastle Thunder today to complete the group stage of the 1895 Cup.

Wakefield had already taken a step towards qualification with a massive win over York Knights and Newcastle were all but gone after conceding 100 points to the Knights.

Despite being overwhelming favourites, when Daryl Powell named his 21-man squad to take on Newcastle Thunder there were some huge names involved as there had been for their Challenge Cup game against Siddal.

The game will be Trinity’s second AB Sundecks 1895 Cup group game having already beaten York Knights 40-4 to put Wakefield in a commanding position and make them favourites to top the group.

Taking place at Featherstone Rovers’ Millennium Stadium, the game is set to be a great celebration of Rugby League in the North East and we are calling for as many fans to travel across and help support not only Wakefield but Newcastle as well.

The game was moved to Featherstone due to the persisting issues as Newcastle which makes just competing in the game and later in League One a success for the club as they noted after their defeat to York.

Powell made four changes to his squad that played against Siddal in the Challenge Cup.

Jermaine McGillvary, Luke Gale, Josh Griffin and Thomas Doyle all drop out of the team with Powell looking a more youthful route.

Young hooker, Harvey Smith was in line for his first action of 2024 and is favourite to rotate the nine position with Liam Hood. Noah Booth recently joined the club with a view of playing with our reserves but after some impressive training performances, he is given a chance to potentially play while Cain Staveley-Carr and Amir Sgahier round out the squad.

It ended up being a history making day for Wakefield who won 110-0 as Newcastle again conceded 100 points.

Wakefield were led superbly by Mason Lino who broke a club record. He scored the most points of any Wakefield Trinity player in a single game with a huge 38.

The win now sees Wakefield set to play Barrow Raiders as the road to Wembley for Championship clubs heats up.

As for Newcastle, they should be commended for the work they have done to be able to compete.
