Wakefield confirm reserve side

Wakefield Trinity head coach Chris Chester has announced they are to reintroduce a reserve side for the coming season.

Trinity will become one of a handful of clubs to go with a second string but Chester hopes the powers that be in Super League see the sense of running a reserve side and make everyone else follow suite.

Chester believes they now have the strength in depth to field a second string if they use all their resources and thinks it will be a massive benefit for the club.

He told TotalRL: "We’re going with a reserve grade team this year. We’ve applied and it’s been granted, so. we’ll roll with it. I’d like to see it made compulsory for every Super League team.

"There’s only ourselves, Wigan and St Helens in Super League - then Halifax, Keighley and another Championship side going with it, which is disappointing. We’ll run with it though, we're looking forward to it and we’ll continue to do so. Hopefully they make it compulsory by the end of this season because that would be a logical move from here, surely."
