AGAR: WE’RE LEARNING ABOUT EACH OTHER ALL THE TIME

posted on 10 March 2012

Head Coach Richard Agar says the Wildcats are finding out more and more about each other all the time as they prepare to face Huddersfield Giants on Sunday (kick-off: 3.30pm.

Head Coach Richard Agar says the new-look squad are continually learning about each other.

Other than the second forty minutes against Bradford Bulls in round three, the Wildcats have shown plenty of promise in all four of their games with their efforts in defence a particular strongpoint against Hull FC last time out.

And Agar is sure that if the Wildcats can build on some of their recent showings then the results will ultimately take a turn for the better.

Although naturally disappointed not to have picked up more than an opening round win, Agar is pleased that the new-look squad are continuously developing as a group.

“We have played some goods side and our worst 40 minutes was against Bradford,” Agar observed.

“I think this current crop of players have come together in a short space of time. We have been highly competitive in our opening games and we could have won the majority of the games we have featured in.

“We have found out a lot about ourselves along the way, with Hull FC last week being a classic example. Defensively we were truly outstanding to with hold our line like we did was excellent.

“The effort showed tremendous character, we showed tremendous improvement on the wings but we just didn’t play the conditions as well as our competitors on the night.

“We are learning and finding out about ourselves along the way.

“I don’t think we are far away, if we were measuring on performance we know the wins will come if performances continue.”

Trinity undoubtedly face their toughest test of the season so far when local rivals Huddersfield Giants visit the Rapid Solicitors Stadium on Sunday (kick-off: 3.30pm), hot on the heels of a fine win over St. Helens.

With the likes of former Wildcats Danny Brough and Luke George in outstanding form, Agar is under no illusions to the difficulty of the task awaiting his side.

“I have been impressed with what I have seen of Huddersfield this season so far,” said Agar.

“They’ve have had a change in style and have the benefits of playing together for two or three years.

“They are playing with extra width with, an extra ball player and along with this they kick the ball phenomenally well.

“They’re prepared to kick and kick at any point in the count.  They play with a lot of width and some great athleticism.

“I think the thing that has caught my eye is their work ethic.  I watched them last week against Saints and they gave very little away.  They have a terrific work ethic and attitude and it’ll be a tough challenge.”

Tickets for Sunday’s game remain on sale and can be bought in the Ridings Centre retail outlet, at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium Box Office or by calling 01924 201548.
