Willie Poching identifies why Wakefield Trinity were able to beat Warrington Wolves

Wakefield Trinity racked up one of the most impressive victories of any side in Super League so far this season.

A 38-22 victory over play-off hopefuls Warrington Wolves shut a lot of doubters up after many had predicted Trinity to be around the bottom of the table.

But, on this performance – inspired by elusive halfback Mason Lino – they will not be anywhere near.

Time and time again, Lino cut Warrington to shreds with the likes of Matty Ashurst and David Fifita having a field day on the edges and through the middle.

And, for head coach Willie Poching, it was all about his players relaxing.

“I wanted them to relax – that win alleviated some of that external pressure,” Poching said on Channel 4 after the game.

“I felt through the week we had that relaxed mode about us, but we’re still building.

“The first five weeks of the season we weren’t able to put out the same halves combination with injuries and suspensions and whatnot, so once we get a settled squad I’m confident we can mix it wit the best as we have today.

“We just take it week by week, that’s where we are at.”
