St Helens 48-6 Wakefield Trinity: Makinson hat-trick fires ninth straight win

Champions St Helens stretched their winning run to nine Super League matches with a 48-6 thrashing of strugglers Wakefield Trinity on Thursday.

The chasm between the division's top and bottom sides was evident as Tommy Makinson ran in a first-half hat-trick.

There were also two tries before the break for James Roby and a single score from Alex Walmsley to open up a 30-0 advantage.

Innes Senior belatedly offered a Wakefield response after Regan Grace extended that lead early in the second period.

Tries from Lewis Dodd and Kevin Naiqama completed the scoring for Saints, though, comfortable winners in the only match of the evening as coronavirus cases in the Wigan Warriors camp led to the clash with Catalans Dragons being called off.
