2011 Player of the Year, Paul Johnson says he is aiming to impress once again in Super League XVII.
The prop forward was one of a number of strong performers in the Boxing Day friendly against Leeds Rhinos as the Wildcats gear up for the start of the new campaign which is now just a month away, with further warm-up matches starting against Sheffield Eagles at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium on Friday night (kick-off: 7.45pm).
“It’s like another fresh start again this year,” said the 23-year old after the Festive Challenge.
“There are new coaches and new players to impress so I just want to try and play well every week and hopefully have a decent year.
“We started really well against Leeds, completed our sets and kept them down their end. I think we made a few mistakes and let it slip in the second half but all-in-all it was a pretty good performance.
“Everyone’s new as well so I’m sure the next time we play we’ll be able to kick-on.
“I think we can take a lot of positives out of it and I’m sure we’ll take the negatives out of it as well and work on them so we can take quite a lot out of the game.”
Admission prices for this Friday’s friendly against the Eagles have been revised and are now priced at £10 for adults, £5 for students/concessions and £1 for under 16’s.
Entry is pay on the gate only and no advance tickets are available.
