Wakefield Trinity Wildcats skipper Danny Kirmond has described Saturday’s 80-0 loss at Warrington Wolves as the lowest point in his professional career.

Kirmond saw his side slump to their eighth successive Super League XX loss, which he admitted was “devastating”.

He said: “I really didn’t see that coming. I felt like we had a good week in training and although we lost to Leeds (in the previous game), I thought we had turned a corner.

“But it went drastically wrong and we were nowhere near where we need to be.”

He added: “For me, it was the lowest point as a professional. I have never felt that way during a game or after it.

“We have got stick from the fans this week and rightly so. Our performance simply wasn’t good enough.”

Kirmond also spoke about rebuilding the team’s confidence and the test of facing Halifax in Friday’s Ladbrokes Challenge Cup fifth round tie.
