Lewis Murphy's two tries helped Wakefield Trinity end their long losing run against derby rivals Castleford Tigers and climb out of the Betfred Super League relegation zone with a 32-6 win at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

Tries from the 20-year-old, Liam Hood and Matty Ashurst put Trinity firmly in control at the break as they led 18-0, with Castleford's best opportunity seeing Bureta Faraimo have a possible try ruled out by the video referee.

Winger Murphy then went the length of the field nine minutes into the second half for a spectacular solo try to set his side on course for a first win over the Tigers since 2015, with David Fifita's score and six goals from Mason Lino sealing the victory.

Smith's debut try helps Hull FC to victorySuper League fixtures | Standings | RL live on Sky Sports

As well as bringing to an end a run of 17 games without tasting victory against their West Yorkshire rivals, the result lifted Wakefield out of the relegation zone and two points clear of Toulouse Olympique, who were beaten at home to Hull FC earlier in the night.

Story of the game

Pipped by champions St Helens five days earlier, Willie Poching's men took out their frustration on their local rivals.

Castleford, who had won four of their previous five matches, had the chance to move to within a point of fourth-placed Huddersfield Giants but this lacklustre performance casts fresh doubt over their play-off credentials.

Trinity went into the contest on the back of a five-match losing run but they looked up for the fight from the start and their energy and enthusiasm was encapsulated by hooker Hood when he went from dummy half on the last tackle to open the scoring with an opportunist try.

As Trinity went on to dominate the first half, full-back Jamie Shaul looked to have scored his first try for the club only to have it ruled out by video referee Jack Smith, but Murphy was not denied after 26 minutes when he leapt above Bureta Faraimo to touch down skipper Jacob Miller's high kick.

Half-back Lino's touchline conversion made it 12-0 and the Tigers needed a last-ditch tackle from full-back Jake Mamo to prevent the ever-dangerous Murphy adding a second try.

                     Complaining about referees has always been, and always will be, a big part of being a football fan.                                                                              Nowadays, debates over the pros and cons of VAR are all the rage, but looking back at some of these baffling decisions over the years might make you relieved that the technology exists nowadays.

The home side looked to have pulled a try back when Faraimo squeezed over at the corner but slow-motion replays indicated a foot in touch and Trinity made the most of the let-off as Miller put second row Ashurst over for their third try two minutes before the break, when they led 18-0.

Radford's men showed signs of improvement in the second half and were camped inside the Trinity 20-metre area, threatening a fightback when Miller collected Danny Richardson's grubber kick and released Murphy on an 80-metre run for his second try.

  Harry Gration funeral: Hundreds line the streets for funeral of BBC star Mourners have been paying their respects to the father-of-six, with crowds gathering outside the front of York Minster in York well before the thanksgiving service was due to start at 11.30am. Former cricket umpire Dickie Bird, former Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu and former Yorkshire cricketer Geoffrey Boycott were among those in attendance.Former fellow presenter Christa Ackroyd, ITV Calendar presenter Christine Talbot and the Labour MP for Batley and Spen Kim Leadbeater were also all at York minster this morning.

Interchange prop Fifita then sent the vociferous away following among the 6,796 crowd into raptures with a barnstorming run that brought Wakefield's fifth try and Lino kicked his fifth goal from as many attempts to extend the lead to 30-0.

Richardson broke his side's duck on the hour, profiting from Lino's fumble behind his own line, and added the conversion.

But it was little consolation for a Tigers side beaten in every department by their spirited visitors, who rounded off the scoring with a Lino penalty five minutes from the end.

What they said

Castleford Tigers head coach Lee Radford

"We fell well short. I was really disappointed with our start and defensively, our middles in particular unfortunately set a precedent for the shambles we looked like in the second half."

Wakefield Trinity head coach Willie Poching

"It's been a long time coming - it feels good. It's a shame we're in the situation we are and the job's not over yet, but tonight feels good."

What's next?

Castleford now face the trip to Super League leaders St Helens on Sunday, August 7 (1pm kick-off). Wakefield are back at home to Catalans Dragons on the same day (3pm).
