Chester aims for top four place
Wakefield Trinity boss Chris Chester says that a top four place in this year's Super League is achievable given the squad's strength in depth.
The Yorkshire side are the early surprise package of this season, having won three out of three to kick off their league campaign.
We feel that we have got a little bit more quality in the squad this year than to what we had last year.Chris Chester
They have the chance to make it four with a game at home to Huddersfield Giants on Sunday, the game being moved back from Friday due to the weather.
Trinity finished fifth in Super League last season, ending in the same position after the Super 8s, but Chester believes it is realistic to aim even higher this time.
Pauli Pauli, Ryan Hampshire, Justin Horo and Jordan Baldwinson have joined the club and Chester feels their presence ensures the squad will be better equipped for the challenges ahead.
He told loverugbyleague.com: "We've got four points more than what we had this time last year so there are a lot of positives to be taken from the first three games.
"We want to try and get in the top four. I think we've certainly got the squad (capable of doing it). We've got a good mix of experience and some quality in the youth as well. We just want to make sure that we keep on improving."
Wakefield are 20/1 to finish top of the Super League at the end of the regular season with Leeds 11/2 and Wigan priced at 4/1.
The Trinity boss said that he was forced to introduce some young players last year before they were fully ready for Super League but is confident the same won't happen this campaign.
"We feel that we have got a little bit more quality in the squad this year than to what we had last year," he added.
"We are going to be relying on them guys over Easter and they will get some game time for us over the next couple of weeks because they need to be ready for the Easter period."
Trinity are 4/9 to beat Huddersfield on Sunday with the Giants at 7/4.
