The Wildcats will start a new era in 2012 by travelling to new boys Widnes Vikings for the opening round of Super League XVII.
Richard Agar’s men are set to kick-off the new campaign at the Stobart Stadium in front of the Sky cameras on Friday 3rd February before welcoming Hull Kingston Rovers to the Rapid Solicitors Stadium for the first home clash of the campaign as the 2012 fixtures were revealed today.
It’s the second time in recent years where Trinity have visited a side new to the top flight, having travelled to Craven Park in 2006 to be the first opponents of newly-promoted Hull KR.
Leeds Rhinos’ involvement in the World Club Challenge means the Wildcats will sit out round three – when they were scheduled to visit the home of the champions – until a later date, before Bradford Bulls visit for a West Yorkshire derby (Saturday 25th February) and Danny Washbrook returns to the KC Stadium for a clash with former club the black and whites (Sunday 4th March).
The Wildcats will visit the capital to take on London Broncos on Saturday 31st March (kick-off: 5.45pm) in one of four occasions in which the red, white and blue will feature on Sky Sports in the first half of the campaign.
A traditional Good Friday derby at home to Castleford (6th April) is followed by a Tuesday visit to the DW Stadium to face Wigan Warriors over Easter whilst the South of France will provide a particularly warm welcome when the Wildcats take on Catalans Dragons on 30th June and the Champions will be in town on Sunday 29th July.
Widnes are the final team to visit the Merrie city in the regular season which concludes with a trip to Salford’s new home on Friday 7th September.
