Hull FC Women charged to a 4-56 victory against Wakefield Trinity to claim their biggest ever win in a competitive fixture.

Nine different try scorers combined for an eleven try display in West Yorkshire as the women’s side looked to end the season on a high.

Team News

Hull fielded a strong side with three players returning to the match-day team for their final away match of the 2023 season.

The Black & Whites also welcomed dual registration players Allana and Lauren Waller from Castleford in their bid to complete the clean sweep against Wakefield this season.

However, the Women’s team were without regular players Izzy Smith and Poppy Lyon.

The Match

Both sides had a shaky start to the match as the visitors were unable to convert two chances in the opening ten minutes.

Wakefield’s Rochelle LIddle and Hull’s Abby Price were sin binned but FC didn’t let this faze them – a minute later, Georgia Smith had crossed over for the first try of the match.

Hull had their second try five minutes later through Saffron Jones, but Wakfield responded with their only try of the match as Katie Evans halved the deficit.

Dual-reg star Allana Waller scored two long-range efforts in the final minutes of the first-half as Hull began to look comfortable with ball in hand.

FC scored twice in the opening ten minutes of the second half as Abby Price and Heather Taylor scored within three minutes of each other.

A spectacular effort from co-captain Jade Key saw her score after a long-range sprint before Lauren Sutton grabbed her first four-pointer of the season to bring the scoreboard past 40.

Both teams were reduced to 12 players as Wakefield’s Holly Whitaker and Hull’s Lauren Waller were sin-binned before Nat Romano put the visitors further ahead.

FC scored twice in the last ten minutes as Price and Alyx Worth’s efforts helped their side to their biggest ever victory in a competitive fixture.

However, the final minutes were a true test of the team’s character as they denied Wakefield a late consolation try despite two repeat sets on the visitors try line.
