Wildcats Back row forward Paul Johnson cannot wait for the Super League season to start next weekend.
Johnson moved to Wakefield from St Helens in the off season and speaking earlier, he tells us he is really enjoying his time at Wakefield, ‘I’m really enjoying my time here, the lads and coaches have been brilliant, they’ve really helped me to settle in. There are quite a lot of new players and everyone has made me feel really welcome.’
Johnson has been a regular in the Wildcats starting line up during the pre season friendlies and has shown his potential and proved his place in the team as he has made the step up to first team action. ‘I’ve feel like I’ve found my feet in the games I’ve played in so far, however I think I can still go up another level once I’ve played a few more games and got some more match fitness under my belt hopefully I’ll be able to increase my match minutes.’
Paul talked about how he excited he was to start the season next weekend, ‘The season has come round really fast, I’m really looking forward to Millennium Magic, I have never played at the event before so I’m hoping I will be given my chance. The lads can’t wait to play Castleford next weekend, after months of preparation it’s nice to finally get started. The feeling amongst the players is really good, we’ve trained really hard in the off season and want to push on this season and get that top eight spot’.
