Wakefield stun Saints

Wakefield picked up their first win in 12 matches after a controversial penalty try secured them a superb 16-12 victory over St Helens.

Jacob Miller was awarded a try seven minutes from the end after Danny Richardson as adjudged to have held him back.

The reverse was a second on the bounce for Keiron Cunningham’s side, who suffered a rare off-night in attack.

Wakefield raced into an early 10-0 lead following a Mason Caton-Brown try and three Sam Williams goals.

However, Saints fought back, and having pulled one try back before half-time through Ryan Morgan, Mark Percival edged them ahead with two tries.

However, Saints missed all three conversions, allowing Wakefield to earn the win when Miller was awarded the try.
