Chester calls defeat “uncharacteristic”

Wakefield Trinity Head Coach Chris Chester was left disappointed by his side’s performance in their 58-0 defeat against Catalans Dragons.

The result leaves Wakefield in tenth place, just ahead of Hull KR.

Reflecting on the heavy defeat, Chester admitted, “I thought it was very uncharacteristic for us to lose like we did.

“We did not show nearly enough effort throughout the game.

“We were too slow and unimaginative with ball in hand but take nothing away from Catalans as I thought they were impressive.

“They outmuscled us, dominated the floor and next week against them well be a difficult game as well.

“There will be some changes made for next weeks’ game in the hopes of bouncing back but we will see how training goes first.”

During the game, Wakefield did sustain casualties that left them short on numbers.

Kelepi Tanginoa, Lee Kershaw and Tony Gigot all left the field in the first half and never returned.

“Lee has sustained a torn hamstring; Tony has a knee injury and Kelepi has injured a couple of ribs.” Chester added.

“I hope they are not too serious. We will have a good look at them.

“However, if needs must, I will ‘draft’ in some of our younger players.

“If they do play, it should be a good experience for them and hopefully, we can turn things around and put in a much-improved performance.”
