Wildcats winger Peter Fox is eagerly anticipating Sunday’s clash with Bradford Bulls and says he goes into the game in the best form of his life.
The 27-year-old has been an ever present in the red, white and blue since his return to the club at the beginning of 2012 and has scored ten tries playing outside Dean Collis, eight of which have been in the last 11 games. Fox’s form has coincided with an upturn in results as Trinity have started to show some consistency going into the second half of the season.
Fox and his team mates travel to Bradford on Sunday looking to get back to winning ways after the 44-40 defeat to Leeds on Monday and also wanting to make up for the 36-18 loss at home to the Bulls in February. Fox is going into the game full of confidence.
“I am extremely happy with my game since I came to the club and everything has gone so well,” he said.
“I would say I am playing the best rugby that I have in my whole career to be honest.
“I really think this club suits me and has got the most out of me, probably because there is not as much pressure compared to other clubs, I just need to keep performing.”
The Wildcats broke an unwanted record against the Rhinos as 40 points is the highest number recorded in a Super League defeat the England international says they have a lot to put right on Sunday afternoon.
“We were bitterly disappointed about parts of our performance on Monday against Leeds but you can’t let in 44 points and expect to get a win. We have a lot to work on and we go into Bradford on Sunday looking to put that right.
“They put in a good performance at our ground but hopefully we can make up for that and get back to winning ways again.
“We have scored a lot of points but that’s not really been our problem. As soon as we gelled together as a team, got our combinations right, we have been scoring.
“To be honest, I think we have been our own worst enemies by dropping the ball in our own half, giving away silly penalties and switching off at times. That is pretty much what has been going wrong, we lost the game on Monday but if we improved just a few certain areas then things would have been different.”
The former Hull KR man also wanted to share his joy at the announcement that Newmarket has been given the go-ahead and hopes to play at the venue in 2015.
“It’s fantastic news for the fans and the city as well, now with a new stadium in place the future looks really bright.
“I have two and a half years left on my contract and I would definitely want to play at the new stadium and hopefully I can get the chance to.”
