Tom Johnstone’s first senior try was scant consolation for Wakefield Trinity Wildcats as they suffered a 44-4 loss at Super League champions St Helens.

The hosts were already 20-0 up by the time Johnstone crossed before the break, Luke Walsh, Lewis Charnock (2) and Tommy Makinson going over for Saints.

Jordan Turner, Adam Swift and Mose Masoe added to the tally early in the second period before Walsh and Makinson grabbed their second tries of the game.

Wildcats have lost their last 10 Super League games and are now five points adrift at the bottom of the table.
