Wakefield coach Chris Chester praised Castleford after his team’s 42-24 defeat against the Super League leaders on Friday.
The Tigers led 36-12 at the break and although Trinity produced a better second-half performance, Chester admitted the home side deserved their win.
“I’m frustrated and disappointed – they were too good for us the first forty minutes and killed us with their ruck speed and off-loads,” said Chester.
“We were better in the second half but game had gone by then.
“Their forward pack rolled us far too easily but take nothing away from Cas – sometimes they are a pleasure to watch but not for us today.
“They are a great side and very hard to stop although we didn’t react well to the errors that we made. A team like Castleford will really hurt you and they did today.
“Their completion rate was very high and they have two good kickers in (Luke) Gale and (Ben) Roberts who can really punish you.
“Classy Cas they are nicknamed and they are a very hard team to defend against and very difficult to break down – something which they have done a lot to improve over the last 12 months.”
