Williams: Ball in Wakey’s court for Super 8s

Wakefield Trinity 24-22 Salford Red Devils

Wakefield Trinity half-back Sam Williams says the ball is in his side’s court for the Super 8s and that the club is in a “good position”.

It has been a superb season for Trinity, who have done brilliantly under the stewardship of coach Chris Chester and Director of Rugby John Kear.

Williams struck up a great partnership with fellow Aussie Jacob Miller until the latter’s injury but the former Catalans man still thinks Trinity can ruffle a few feathers towards the late stages of the year.

“It would have been good if we had got the win last week, but our destiny is still in our hands,” Williams told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“The ball is in our court and we’ve got a few blokes starting to come back, which is helping too.

“The club is in a good position to try and make a bit of a run at the back end of the season.”

Williams insisted that Wakefield do need to improve in certain areas of the field but also gave credit to his side’s defence in the first half against Castleford, in which they kept the table-toppers scoreless.

“Every side in the comp’ will say the same, if you defend well it usually helps with your attack,” he added.

“You have got more of the footy and you’ve got more energy.

“We will take a lot out of our defence in that first half.

“There’s areas where we can improve, but they are the benchmark in the competition so far and we missed out by one point. It was a good effort, but disappointing not to win – especially when we had a six-point lead with not long to go.

“We have got to look at the positives out of that game and there was plenty of them, but we weren’t at the right end of the scoreline and that’s what you play the game for.”
