Chester slams limp Trinity display
Coach Chris Chester says his Wakefield side produced their "worst performance" since he took charge in Sunday's 42-24 loss to London.
Trinity started strongly and opened up a 12-point lead but the newly promoted Broncos fought back and led 26-18 at the break.
Wakefield reduced the deficit to two points after the restart but London again responded to secure a victory in their season opener.
"Without taking too much credit away from London, we killed ourselves today with a lack of respect for the ball," said Chester after the game, as reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post.
"I’m extremely disappointed. It’s probably the worst performance since I’ve been involved here. We hurt ourselves today.
"Defensively we were all over the shop, we have never been so nervous. The first five tries came from some really poor defensive reads.
"I’m disappointed for the fans that turned up today. I take responsibility.
"We just looked lost today but we have got to find a way back."
Wakefield host St Helens in the next round of Super League fixtures, while London head to Salford Red Devils.
