Scruton proud but disappointed

Wakefield prop Nick Scruton was disappointed but also proud of his team, after they fought Hull FC to a 20-20 draw at the weekend.

Scruton feels that Trinity are now knuckling down to the hard work after the “buzz” of new coach James Webster arriving has worn off.

“There’s a new buzz about the place with a new coach, and it’s easy after that third game for it to start drifting away, and start slacking off,” said Scruton.

“But I think we’ve shown out there that we’ve really turned a corner.

“We’re a proper side now, with people putting in the effort for each other.

“We definitely showed that today.”

Nevertheless, Scruton felt that his team should have hung on for the win, especially after he crossed for a late try, which seemed to have won the contest for the Wildcats.

“When we score with three minutes to go then we should be tough enough the see the game out,” he said.

“In the immediate aftermath it feels like a point lost.

“I thnk when we sit back and have a good look at the video, then we’ll see that we’ve come back three times and shown some real character in the game.

“People have run themselves into the ground. It’s more of a point gained with some of the efforts out there.

“There were a lot of big efforts from them [Hull FC] and we’ve had to come from behind three times.

“But if they’d have gone away with no points then they’d have probably been a bit upset themselves.

“I reckon a fair result is a draw, but a win would have been nice, especially scoring the match winning try as well, I can’t believe we let that go.

“It’s always nice to get over, and it would have been nice to score the winning try, but I’m just glad we’ve got something out of the game.”
