Danny Kirmond believes the Wildcats have made the most of a free weekend without a game and are looking forward to facing St. Helens this Friday night (kick-off: 8pm).
Kirmond and the Wildcats involvement in the Carnegie Challenge Cup came to an end at the fourth round stage at the home of Super League Champions Leeds Rhinos meaning a weekend away from the rigours of a competitive match for Trinity.
The Wakefield vice-captain told this week’s League Express that far from taking it easy, the Wildcats had a tough week of training that he believes will be of benefit when it comes to facing one of the competitions in-form sides this weekend.
“We’re not glad to have the rest because we’d rather be in the Challenge Cup, but it gives us the opportunity to do things that need working on,” commented Kirmond.
“We’ve had a very tough week at training and we’ve got a lot out of the spare weekend. It should stand us in good stead for this week against Saints.
“They have hit good form since the coaching change and play some really good rugby so it’s going to be tough.
“But the competition this year has shown that every game is a challenge in its own right. Every team is beating every other, which is good for the game and good for the competition.”
