Dean Lawford kicked, but the scores were soon level when Leeds were found guilty of the same crime and former Rhino Adam Hughes slotted a penalty over.
However Trinity gained confidence in that, and soon managed to grab the only try of the first half. They broke on the right hand side and after good work from Hughes the ball was span inside for former Loiner Vince Fawcett, who stepped inside Marcus St Hilaire and crossed between the sticks.

Ryan Sheridan's emergence off the bench was the key. He put in the grubber that yielded the first try with Brad Godden picking the ball up to force over.
Sheridan himself got the second with a darting run that was not picked up by the Wildcats defence, an Anthony Farrell off-load and quick hands saw Francis Cummins zip in at the corner to put an end to the game.
