Do you think you’ve got what it takes to be the next Dave Woods or Eddie Hemmings?  If you do then the Wildcats want to hear from you!

Could you be the new Wildcats matchday commentator?

If you can’t make all of the matches in Super League XVII then it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on seeing the action as match DVD’s will be available in-store after every game throughout 2012.

But the Wildcats media team are missing one vital cog in the machine – a matchday commentator.

If you’re a budding young commentator looking for a first step into the world of sports reporting, or a passionate fan who thinks you’ve got what it takes to show Eddie and Stevo how it’s done then now’s your chance to quite literally put your money where your mouth is.

And what better game to showcase your talents than in the first West Yorkshire derby of the year between the Wildcats and local rivals Castleford Tigers on Sunday 22nd January at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.

Each entrant will get their chance on the microphone during the 80 minutes with the winner being decided by an expert panel consisting of BBC Radio Leeds Rugby League Producer, James Deighton and Yorkshire Radio presenter and commentator, Richard Stead.

The winner will become part of the Wildcats media team on match days home and away in Super League XVII, gaining access into press rooms and post-match press conferences plus, of course, having their commentary heard both on Wildcats TV and on the matchday DVD.

If you think you could be the new Wildcats matchday commentator then e-mail Media Manager, Andy Morgan with your name, date of birth, contact details and a paragraph about why you think you’d be the right person for the job.

Send your e-mail to

Entrants must be 16 or over.

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
