Chris Chester: That was one of the best wins of my career

Wakefield coach Chris Chester said their win over Warrington was one of the best of his career.

Trinity earned a hard-fought 18-8 victory over the Wolves at the Mobile Rocket Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Wakefield led 6-2 after an hour before Stefan Ratchford went over for Warrington. Chester’s side found their second wind though and late tries from Matty Ashurst and Tom Johnstone saw them take the spoils.

Chester said: “I thought we were really good value today.

“We controlled that first 40 minutes and showed some real Wakefield grit, especially when we went behind. We found a way to win.

“There were some real good individuals but collectively as a 17 it was one of the best wins I’ve been involved with.

“A lot has been said about us as a group and as a club these last few weeks. We were all disappointed with the result against Hull KR but I think we quietened a few people today.

“It was massive for us, I’m just really pleased for the players because they cop it just as much as me.

“I’m really proud of everybody’s effort. It was a much-improved performance. I don’t think we looked in any real danger. When we went 8-6 down, I always felt comfortable we were going to get a result.”
