Official Report / Commentary

Mason Caton-Brown claimed four tries as Wakefield Trinity took an expected step into the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup quarter-finals with a comfortable 54-6 victory at Dewsbury Rams. 

The Betfred Super League side, who could share near-neighbours Dewsbury's Tetley's Stadium next season, can take away fond memories of their latest visit after running in four converted and unanswered scores in the first half and another five touchdowns after the interval.

Liam Finn, Wakefield captain in the absence of Danny Kirmond, kicked each of the nine conversions, while Bill Tupou grabbed a brace of tries. 

Sam Williams, Matty Ashurst and Ashley Gibson also scored for Wakefield, whose line was breached once by Dewsbury's Aaron Brown.

Wakefield head of rugby John Kear said: "I thought it was a very professional performance.

"Obviously these games can be banana skins as Huddersfield (who lost to Championship side Swinton) found out in the last round, so we came here fully focused and intent."

Rams coach Neil Kelly, who lives in and played for Wakefield during the 1980s, said: "I can't remember a time when I've lost a game by over 50 points and said that we defended superbly.

"Fitness took its toll in the end but we scrambled well and showed a great desire to keep them out."
