Wakefield Trinity Wildcats will face fierce rivals Castleford Tigers in an explosive opening to the 2011 season. The opening round will be played out in the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff next February as Millennium Magic weekend moves to the opening round of the Super League season.
Wakefield and Castleford take centre stage at 5pm on Saturday February 12th and Wildcats Head Coach John Kear is looking forward to it: “Magic weekend has been a great event over the last four years. I’m highly delighted with the move back to Cardiff and the Millennium Stadium, I think it’s a great move to introduce the Derby games back. I’m excited at the prospect of a fierce battle with our local neighbours Castleford Tigers at the prime time 5pm slot on Saturday. I’m sure lots of our fans will be there to cheer us on and get behind us as we look to lay down our marker for the season ahead.’
