Chester questions players’ honesty

Wakefield coach Chris Chester questioned his players’ honesty after they crashed 38-14 at Leeds on Friday.

A ragged first-half performance saw Trinity go in 20-4 down at the break and Chester admitted his team were no match for the resurgent Rhinos.

“We were out-muscled and out-enthused all night – they ran the ball a lot harder than we did and we were no match for them,” he said.

“I could tell in the first 10 minutes that we were a bit dishonest in the things we were doing. Leeds were by far the best side and it could have been a bit more had they executed a bit better.

“The standards we set eight or nine weeks ago when we discussed how we wanted to be perceived was a waste of time.

“We were poor straight from the kick-off and got beat by a far better team tonight.

“I can’t repeat what I said at half-time. I was very disappointed with certain individuals and the way we performed out there.

“Maybe a few of the guys have fallen in love with themselves after a couple of really good wins.

“We got blown away by Leeds. We couldn’t live with them. Like I said, we got out-muscled, out-enthused and maybe out-coached as well.”
