Chester confirms social media blackout
Wakefield Trinity coach Chris Chester has put a social media ban in place ahead of Friday's clash with London Broncos.
Both sides are in a four-way battle with Hull KR and Huddersfield Giants to avoid relegation from the Super League heading into the final round of fixtures of the regular season.
Trinity know they will be guaranteed survival if they claim a victory at the Mobile Rocket Stadium against the Broncos, while they will also retain their top-flight status if KR or Huddersfield suffer defeats in their matches against Salford Red Devils and Catalans Dragons respectively.
However, a victory on Friday could be easier said than done for Chester's team. They have won just two games over the last four months, while they have also been beaten twice by the Broncos already this season.
That has led to Chester introducing a social media ban in an attempt to focus minds on the task at hand.
"My job is to try and keep the players as relaxed as possible," Chester said. "We've been really excited out in training today.
"My job is just to make sure the prep is good and try and take the pressure off those guys.
"We've had a social media blackout this week and a press blackout. The players are doing their bit."
