Tom Johnstone’s second-half tries sealed victory for Wakefield against Huddersfield

Tom Johnstone’s try inside the final five minutes secured Wakefield Trinity’s first win since the Super League season resumed in August as they defeated Huddersfield Giants 18-14.

A promising start from Wakefield was rewarded through Matty Ashurst’s opening try, but Huddersfield hit back to lead 10-6 at half time through well-taken scores from Aiden Sezer and Jordan Turner.

Sam Wood pushed the Giants further ahead after the break, but Trinity dug deep and two tries from winger Johnstone secured the win and gave a welcome boost to Super League’s bottom side after a difficult period for the club.
