Chester: More to come from Trinity

Wakefield Trinity head coach Chris Chester believes there is further improvement in his side, following back-to-back wins in the opening two rounds of the new Super League season.

Trinity were comfortable winners away at Hull KR in round one, and overcame Salford Red Devils last week, but Chester insists that his side can perform even better in the upcoming rounds.

We probably still had another two or three gears to go through, but we were able to pick up a positive result. There is certainly room for improvement, but the signs at this stage are certainly very encouraging.

"Defensively, Salford were very good and they picked a really big team, and we struggled for the majority of the second half just containing their middles. We weren't great, but maybe it's a sign of a good side that we won," said Chester, who led Trinity to a fifth-placed finish in 2017.

"We probably still had another two or three gears to go through, but we were able to pick up a positive result. There is certainly room for improvement, but the signs at this stage are certainly very encouraging."

Trinity return to Super League action on Saturday, when they travel to face Catalans Dragons.

They are 8/13 to win the clash while the Dragons are priced at 13/10.

Victory would ensure they keep up the pressure on St Helens, Wigan and Leeds at the top of the table, although Chester admits he's been glad of the recent break from action.

Trinity had no game last weekend due to the World Club Challenge and Super League's Australian tour.

"We've been able to get plenty of work into them," said Chester, "but some of the boys who've been struggling with injuries have been able to get off their feet for a few days, so it has been good having this time off."
