Challenge Cup: Wakefield win in thriller & Huddersfield pushed at Barrow

Challenge Cup

Wakefield produced another magical display at the Halliwell Jones Stadium to defeat Warrington 16-12 in the Challenge Cup.

Mason Lino impressed once again and was rewarded with the man of the match live on Premier Sports. 

Warrington opened the scoring through returning winger Connor Wrench on 10 minutes for a 6-0 lead. Full-back Josh Thewlis supported a break two minutes later to give his side a 12-0 advantage.

Wakefield hit back on 27 minutes through Lewis Murphy, scoring his first professional try. 

Kelepi Tanginoa was held back from a try-scoring opportunity in a controversial moment before half-time.

However, that only motivated Wakefield, who kept Warrington scoreless in the second half and crossing twice through Reece Lyne and Corey Hall to claim a 16-12 victory.

Huddersfield made to work in Cumbria

Huddersfield scored through Luke Yates, Ricky Leutele, Sebastine Ikahihifo, Jack Ashworth and Innes Senior.
