AGAR NAMES STRONG SQUAD TO FACE FEATHERSTONE

posted on 8 January 2013

Wakefield Wildcats head coach Richard Agar has named his strongest possible squad as Trinity host Featherstone Rovers this Sunday, kick-off 3pm.

Richard Agar has named his squad for the visit of Featherstone.

Agar is currently running his squad through their paces in Portugal as preparation for the start of the new Super League campaign. The five-day warm weather training camp got underway last Saturday and is also building towards hosting Featherstone at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium this Sunday.

It is the first time the home crowd will get to see the new squad numbers which include a new half-back 6 & 7 in Paul Sykes and Tim Smith. Paul Aiton is the 2013 number 9 and will feature in a home game for the first time since the beginning of July.

Brad Singleton is in-line to make his debut for the Wildcats while Reece Lyne and Justin Poore are set to play at the home of Trinity for the first time after running out in the red, white and blue for the first time in the Boxing Day defeat to Leeds Rhinos.

Lyne made a try scoring debut at Headingley Carnegie and impressed in the centres while Poore was dismissed after 20 minutes for an altercation with Rhinos prop Ryan Bailey in an eventful start to his Wildcats career.

1. Richard MATHERS

2. Peter FOX

3. Dean COLLIS

4. Lee SMITH

5. Ben COCKAYNE
