London win was revenge, says Cockayne

Wakefield’s two-try hero Ben Cockayne says the players were spurred on by last season’s nilling by London in their win over the Broncos on Sunday.

The winger followed up his hat-trick against Hull KR last week with a brace, as the Wildcats picked up back-to-back wins with a 28-0 victory at Twickenham Stoop.

Last March, Wakefield found themselves on the wrong side of a 36-0 scoreline against the same opposition.

Cockayne told the club’s official website: “We actually spoke about that briefly at half-time between the players.

“We said remember what happened to us last, let’s do it to them and we were still talking about that in last couple of minutes and we managed to keep them to zero which was very pleasing.

“I’m pleased but I’ve just been in the right places at the right times, today I dropped it over the line which was pathetic and I should have put Richard Mathers away for so there’s still areas I need to improve on, as do the rest of the team but to come here and nil London was a great effort.”

Cockayne, with five tries to his name already, is well on his way to matching the 16 tries he scored in 27 appearances last season.
