Wakefield🏉 72-10 Hull FC: Trinity💫 Score Record Total in 🎊Victory

  |   Rugby

Wakefield secured their Super League status and consigned champions Leeds to the Qualifiers with a thumping 72-10 victory over Hull FC.

The result means a bottom-four placing for reigning champions Leeds, who will have to fight for their survival in the Super 8s Qualifiers for the second time in three years.

Chris Chester's men ran in 12 tries and Ryan Hampshire kicked 12 goals from 13 attempts as Trinity registered their highest score in Super League history.

It was also Hull's biggest-ever Super League defeat, eclipsing their 64-10 hammering by St Helens in 2002, and effectively ended their top-four hopes after a third successive defeat.

Hull, who had won their eight previous meetings with Wakefield, had regulars Marc Sneyd, Jamie Shaul, Joe Westerman and Fetuli Talanoa all back in their starting line-up despite not being named in coach Lee Radford's initial 19-man squad.

Sneyd was back from a nine-match absence with a knee injury but quite how fit the returning players were remains a question to be answered.

The Black and Whites trailed 72-0 before avoiding total humiliation by scoring the last two tries of the match.
