and live on Freeview channel 276
Trinity are four points behind second-bottom Castleford Tigers going into their season finale against the Robins and Applegarth admitted: "Ultimately, I've failed because we've been relegated.
“That stings personally and professionally and hurts more, being a Wakefield lad. The buck stops with me.”
But he stressed: "My job is to be head coach of Wakefield until I'm told otherwise. I'm not an idiot. I know there's been a lot of noise behind the scenes. It's part and parcel of top-level sport. You shouldn't be in these jobs if you can't handle that sort of speculation.”
