Head coach Richard Agar is looking to move on from last week’s defeat against Bradford Bulls with an improved display at home to Hull KR this Saturday.

Richard Agar is expecting a response from his team when they welcome Hull KR to the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.

The Wildcats were beaten 40-6 at the Provident stadium and never really got going in a disappointing start to the season.

Agar is a confident of a response this Saturday and believes the squad can put the result behind them and put in a better performance this week.

He Told Wildcats TV: “Every club and every group of players will get those get those performances over the course of the year. What you have to try and do is keep them down to a minimum and show the adequate response from it, I’d like to think that will happen this week.

“We have certainly showed that in training, but I’ve had no qualms about the way we’ve been training. I’ve been happy with the way the boys have been turning up and getting their jobs done during the week.

“The first week was a little bit of a shock but we’re looking forward now. Poring over it all week is not going to get us a performance this weekend, we’ve looked at it and put it to bed.

“We’ve trained around it and are hoping we’ve made the necessary adjustments, it might not be pitch perfect over night but I think it’s going to be a damn site better than it was last week.”

Saturday will mark the first home game of the season for Trinity as they return to the Rapid Solicitors Stadium to play in front of the loyal Wildcats faithful.

Wakefield finished the 2012 Super League season winning five of their last six home matches and Agar is confident that with the backing of the fans, the team can get back in full flow and reproduce that form.

“We loved playing at home last year, we had some outstanding days, our crowd got right behind us and stuck with us all year. We want to try and re-create a little bit of that because we really do enjoy playing at home.”

Tickets for the first home game of the season start from just £20 for adults, with juniors and concessions tickets from only £10.

Super League is back at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium so don’t miss out on the action as team look to reproduce the form that provided some never to be forgotten moments in 2012.

With the opening of the new Fanzone as well as Britain’s Got Talent finalists Loveable Rogues performing live, your Saturday night’s entertainment for the whole family is catered for.  Don’t miss out!

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
