Chester ecstatic after Catalan rout

Wakefield boss Chris Chester could not hide his delight after Trinity secured a 38-18 victory at Catalan Dragons on Saturday.

Ben Jones-Bishop’s treble made it four wins from five for Wakefield, as they beat a Dragons side that have now lost their last four games to leave Chester singing the praises of his players.

“I’m really, really pleased – I thought we were very dominant today straight from the kick-off. I thought our forward pack was outstanding and we created a lot of opportunities.

“We were a little bit disappointed not to go in at half time with a few more tries under our belt – I think Tom Johnstone lost the ball twice in try-scoring opportunities but his try just before half-time gave him a bit of a leg up.

“In the second half we came out and were very, very good with the ball, we ran hard and I think defensively we were good in the second half.

“I’m a bit disappointed that we give them a bit of a leg up in the second half and a couple of poor penalties from us gave them some field position.

“That being said, I think we are deserving of the two points, we’ve won four from the last five now and this team is full of confidence.”
