Lyne hopes to rattle Saints again

Wakefield Trinity centre Reece Lyne hopes they can repeat their win over St Helens in the regular season at home when the sides meet again tonight.

The Hull-born back, who signed a new four and a half year deal during the week, believes Trinity know exactly how to win against Saints.

“We beat them at home and it was a close game last time,” said Lyne.

“We have a certain way we know how to play against them but it’s going to be another tough game; they’re top of the league by a country mile.

“But team’s have shown in recent weeks that there is a way to play against them that rattles them up a bit.

“Teams have been aggressive and cut down their time. They’ve got some very good players that, if you give them time, they can be very deadly. The key is to limit their time when they have the ball.”

As many teams have found out this season, if you concentrate on one of St Helens’ players, then others can hurt you and Lyne is well aware it’ll require a team effort to come away with a win against the league leaders.

“They’ve got a really big forward pack. Danny Richardson and Jonny Lomax are two great halfbacks and their outside backs are really good as well.

“It’s a whole team effort to do a job across the park on their team.”

Despite being eight points outside the top four with only twelve to play for, Lyne believes there is still plenty to play for; for him and his teammates.

“It’s still mathematically possible to reach the top four so that’s always the aim when it’s still possible. We know it’s going to be a long shot.

“There’s some prize money on the line for the club which is only going to help us going forward.

“A club like Wakefield; any bit of extra money is important for the club. That’s something we’ve got an eye on as well.”
