Chester delighted with second-half response

Wakefield head coach Chris Chester was thrilled with the performance of his side in the second-half.

Trinity came back from a 12-point deficit at the break to clinch a hard-fought 28-24 win against Leigh at the Beaumont Legal Stadium on Thursday.

“I thought we were very good in that second half and it was a tale of two halves tonight,” he said.

“For 20-odd minutes we looked like we were in total control of the game and then we came up with a really poor kick and they got a bit of momentum.

“I thought they got a few really soft tries on our goal line but we rectified that after the break.”

Chester hinted before the game how Leigh would be very physical, but he was pleased with his side for stemming the flow and putting in a solid defensive effort in the second half.

“We really toughed it out and defended very hard that second half,” he added.

“They’re a big side and take some stopping.”

After a comprehensive defeat at the hands of Leeds Rhinos at Headingley last week, Chester was pleased with the response by his team.

“We’ve only ever been out-enthused once this season against Leeds last time,” he said.

“It was important we got back on the horse and we’ve done that tonight with a really good performance.”
