Mark Applegarth reacts to Wakefield Trinity's defeat to Wigan Warriors
and live on Freeview channel 276
Applegarth states Trinity’s poor form isn’t down to a lack of effort, as they still await their first win of the year.
“We had too many yardage errors in that first half,” he said.
“It felt like we were constantly defending our try line, and against a team of Wigan’s quality you can’t afford to be doing that.
“I felt that was the difference.
“There were a couple of individual errors for their tries, and one well-worked one.
“When you’re playing a team that will be competing for honours and you’re gifting them easy field position, then they will pull the trigger.
“We found that out today.
“I can’t fault the lads in terms of their desire to work hard for each other but those errors can hurt us pretty bad.
“They are playing to capacity and giving everything they’ve got, so we’ve just got to stick at it.
“They were showing up for each other in defence, but Wigan are a top team with quality players.
“It wasn’t down to lack of effort that we got undone.
"If you feel like someone is playing at their level, then you can’t ask more than that.
“I believe we can turn it around.”
