POORE SET FOR BOXING DAY DEBUT AS SQUAD TO FACE CHAMPIONS NAMED

posted on 19 December 2012

Wakefield Wildcats head coach Richard Agar has named his strongest possible squad for the Boxing Day clash against Leeds Rhinos as Australian Justin Poore will be handed his debut as a starting prop.

New signing Justin Poore is set to make his Wildcats debut on Boxing Day.

The Wildcats travel to Headingley Carnegie on Wednesday 26th December, kick off 11.30am to face the 2012 Super League champions and the team that ended Trinity’s sensational seven game winning streak in the first round of the play-offs.

It is the first chance to see how preparations for 2013 are going under Agar in his second season in charge at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium. Poore could well be joined by fellow new boys Reece Lyne and Bobbie Goulding in making debuts for the club as the duo are also included in the squad.

Fans that will be packed inside the home of the Rhinos will also witness the formidable half-back pairing of Paul Sykes and Tim Smith in their new shirt numbers of a traditional 6 & 7 combination.
