Wakefield Trinity coach Chris Chester said there were some naughty tactics on show last night after he lost four key men in his side’s 30-20 win over Wigan and stated some incidents should have been penalised.
Trinity moved up to third place in the table but the shine was taken off the win by losing Anthony England, Reece Lyne, Kyle Wood and captain Jacob Miller with injuries, two of which were knee problems, and Chester questioned whether the Cherry and Whites should have been punished for deliberately attacking the knees of his players.
“It was a crazy game and a lot of naughty stuff went on tonight which I think should have been penalised,” he said.
“Reece Lyne’s knee could have been avoided and there were a couple of other challenges where the players attacked the knee. The sooner we eradicate that from the game the better. That was just ridiculous.
“I’m just a bit deflated because of the fact we’ve lost so many key players tonight. With a couple of them I don’t think it’s going to be short term either.”
