Wakefield Trinity 44-12 Hull FC
The Black & Whites fell to a 40-12 defeat at the hands of Wakefield Trinity in their final game of the 2021 Betfred Super League season. Hull were forced into two changes going into the match, with Marc Sneyd (bicep) and Mahe Fonua (ankle) dropping out of contention. The pair were replaced by Josh Bowden and young half-back Jacob Hookem who came into the squad on the interchange bench to make his competitive club debut.
Wakefield opened the scoring after three minutes when a wide ball found Innes Senior on the edge of the field of play, who had the strength to stay away from the whitewash and dive over for the first score of the match. Trinity had a second try ten minutes later when Mason Lino’s high kick was patted back into the arms of James Batchelor by an airborne Liam Kay, with the back-rower scoring under the sticks.
FC’s first real chance of the game came two minutes later, however, a wide ball to Bureta Faraimo, who would have had a walk-in to the Wakefield line, was fumbled. A poor opening quarter saw Kelepi Tanginoa get Wakefield’s third as he had the pace to get on the end of a Mason Lino grubber.
Matters got worse for Hull when former Black & White Jacob Miller went over on the 25-minute mark, while Fifita got try number five picking up a loose ball from 20 metres out to stroll in. Hampshire added number six before the break.
