Caton-Brown confident in Wakefield

Mason Caton-Brown scored two scorching tries at Widnes on Friday to help Wakefield to a convincing 36-8 win.

The victory moves Trinity into Super League’s top four with one round to play.

“It was a good performance from us,” he said. “We started well and wanted to carry that on in the second half.

“It started a bit slow at the start of the second half but we held them out and kept them to zero points in the second half. We’re happy with that.”

After making his Wakefield debut against St Helens in March, he has since become a fixture in the Trinity ranks and has now scored 17 tries this term.

“I’m settling down okay and the boys are all good,” he added. “It’s a good coaching set up there – I’m just trying to play my best rugby and hopefully do something this year.

“It’s a good job. I’m enjoying playing rugby and doing what I do best. We are lucky to have some good ball players in our halves and in our centres and it’s our job for me and Bish (Ben Jones-Bishop) to finish off those tries.

“We appreciate what the forwards do in the middle to tie all the defence in and we can hopefully put those tries in.”

He was full of praise for centre Bill Tupou.

“He keeps feeding me those tries, but I gave him one as well,” he said. “I keep trying to give him something back! It’s helpful, our edge is going well.

“After this (result), it puts us in the top four and we’ve got a big game next week (against St Helens) to hopefully push us into that third place. If the results go our way, we’ll look to start those top eights in a good position.”

Jones-Bishop always had confidence that it would be a good season for Trinity.

“It was the reason why I joined this team,” he said. “Last year you could see the signs of a good team coming together.

“I’m not surprised with how we’re doing or how we’re playing. We’ve got good self belief in us and we know what we can do on our day.”
