Chris Chester believes Wakefield’s comeback at Wigan on Monday proved how far his team have progressed in the last year.
Trinity trailed 20-0 after twenty minutes before roaring back to claim an impressive 42-30 victory over the Warriors.
Chester said: “It was a tough start for us. The first 20 minutes we couldn’t really control the ball, we were completing at 50 percent, then after 20 minutes we went 11 sets from 11 and went in at half-time 22-20.
“I thought we were worthy winners. It was a top performance from the guys – that Wakefield team 12 months ago would have been done by a cricket score, so I’m really pleased we came back in the game and got a massive result for this club.
“It’s a hard place to come. We have been on the end of some big scores when we’ve played Wigan over the last few years. To come here and get ourselves back in the game and show that character really shows how far we’ve come as a group.
“We are a good side and we can challenge anyone when we are at our best. We’ve come a long way, we are not too bothered about the table at the moment.
“We just want to make sure that we are competing every week and entertaining every week. We competed very well today, we scored some good tries.”
