VICTORIES WILL come, Wakefield Trinity forward Justin Horo insists.

The West Yorkshire club go into tomorrow’s visit of Super League leaders St Helens on a run of five straight defeats.

Those have included losses to Wigan Warriors, last year’s league leaders Castleford Tigers, Challenge Cup holders Hull FC and champions Leeds Rhinos, as well as Warrington Wolves.

The games are not getting any easier, but Horo, who joined Trinity from Catalans Dragons last autumn, said: “It has been a tough month of footy and a tough week over the Easter period.

“We’ve just been missing out on results, but we’ve got to hang in there and we will get one eventually.”

Trinity have not been close throughout their run of defeats, losing all five by a total of just 30 points.

We are very confident we can turn it around because it’s just one try we need to find.

Aucklander Horo, 31, said: “We are not far away, that’s the thing. It is within a try every game.

“We are very confident we can turn it around because it’s just one try we need to find.

“We need to find the effort, individually and as a group, to just get it done.”

Trinity led at half-time in four of the five games, only to fall away after the break.

The former Manly Sea Eagles star added: “Maybe we didn’t address it early enough, but it is something I think we can turn around and that will help with our results going forward.

“We concede a couple of tries and then we get a rocket from the coach or from ourselves and then we get going again, but we are just dropping off for 10-15 minutes at the start of the half.”

Trinity recall experienced duo Liam Finn and Scott Grix after they were left out of the narrow defeat to Leeds.

Prop Anthony England is back from injury and Chris Annakin is also included, James Batchelor, Max Jowitt, Pauli Pauli and Ryan Hampshire making way.

Saints have lost only once this season but they are without England hooker James Roby tomorrow after he came off with a rib injury in last week’s win over Hull.

Young full-back Matty Costello comes into their 19-man squad as the only change.
