Wakefield coach Richard Agar hailed his side's attacking prowess after seeing them run in nine tries in a 50-22 triumph at London Broncos.

Richie Mathers led the way with four scores while Dean Collis added two as Wakefield built on last week's demolition of Catalan Dragons.

Agar said: "For two weeks running we have racked up 50 points and that takes some doing.

"It shows that we have some real promise as an attacking unit.

"We played it simple and we punched holes in their defence, and some of the tries we scored were created by great bits of skill.

"We have had some tough times, but we have come out the other side better for it.

"There are still lessons for us to learn, but I am really pleased with a lot of what we did today."

Wakefield wasted little time getting out of the blocks with Mathers striking twice inside the opening 10 minutes.

Although Thomas Minns responded for the hosts, the Wildcats were to run in three more scores before the break from Jarrod Sammut, Collis and Reece Lyne. It was more of the same after the interval, as Mathers ran in his third score early on.

The Broncos did manage a further three tries, Denny Solomona's brace added to by skipper Matt Cook, but they were sandwiched by a trio of Wakefield scores, with Collis, Pita Godinet and Mathers crossing.

While the Wildcats are very much on the up, the defeat was London's fifth on the bounce this season, leaving them in a precarious position, but coach Tony Rea remained defiant.

He said: "Score lines against us like this will not break us, they will mould us.

"I know people will be down on us after this, but we are not down on ourselves.

"We will be okay - we just need to harden up a bit. We gave them a significant number of their points today through handling errors and mistakes and if you take that away it would be very different."
