Hardaker helps Leeds through
Saturday 14 April 2012
Leeds beat Wakefield 38-18 in their Challenge Cup fourth-round
tie at Headingley last night. Zak Hardaker scored two tries for
Leeds and Ryan Bailey, Danny McGuire, Karl Ablett, Ben Jones-Bishop
and Paul McShane also crossed the line.
Kevin Sinfield kicked five goals. Kyle Amor, Isaac John and Danny Kirmond scored for Wakefield; Paul Sykes kicked three goals.
The Widnes coach, Denis Betts, hopes the magic of the Challenge Cup can transform his club's fortunes when they take on St Helens today.
"After such a tough Easter you've got some very tired bodies," Betts said. "Maybe you'd like a little bit more time to get the focus right. But, if anything, the Challenge Cup gives you another focus so you can energise people."
