Though there may not be any Super League action this Saturday, today we’ve been treated to a number of reserve fixtures.
Despite this, it was only really Wakefield Trinity who included a wealth of first team talent in their line-up as one of their first teamers scored a sensational solo try.
The man in question was new arrival Kyle Evans who ran 85 metres to score Wakefield’s second try of an impressive 54-0 win over London.
It’ll be interesting to see what the future holds for Evans at Wakefield. He started well at Trinity but was replaced by another new recruit in Jorge Taufua whilst Lewis Murphy has proven immovable on the other wing.
Even Taufua’s injury didn’t open the door for Evans with Lee Kershaw’s return coming at the wrong time for the winger.
Speaking of outside backs who have recently lost their spot in the side Jack Croft soon got in on the act with an intercept try. Croft has recently lost his centre spot to Lee Gaskell despite Gaskell’s preference to play in the halves or at fullback.
He then scored another lovely long range effort three minutes later showing a dummy and racing 60 metres to score.
Completing the trio of first teamers to play and score, Rob Butler got over for a brace of tries in the second half as Wakefield wrapped up a 10-try victory.
Elsewhere, Warrington had a sprinkling of first team experience in their side with Riley Dean playing against St Helens as the Wolves defeated St Helens 26-4.
Dean was in good form recently but has lost his place in the first team over the last few weeks even after Matt Dufty’s injury on debut against Huddersfield.
In the other game today, a young Wigan side defeated a young Hull KR side 42-18 as the Warriors were also led by an exciting young halfback with a small amount of Super League experience as Logan Astley, who made his Super League debut earlier this season, scored a brace of tries in the win.
