Wakefield Wildcats prop Justin Poore has told Wildcats TV his joy at making his home debut one to remember after the 36-20 victory over Hull KR.
The former State of Origin forward was one of Richard Agar’s standout performers, setting the tone from the first drive forward of the brutal encounter.
The Wildcats scored six tries, three of which went to former Rovers favourite Ben Cockayne to secure their first two points of the new Super League campaign. In a taster to what Poore told Wildcats TV he admitted it was a important victory.
“It was very crucial, and it was a big confidence boost, especially after last week and it was thoroughly deserved.
“It was a very tough week, personally and as a team. All the boys know we let ourselves down in crucial areas and I thought we really stood up today and I couldn’t say a bad word about anyone.”
The number 8 was at the heart of a serious collision with his former St. George Illawarra teammate Lincoln Withers in the opening seconds before checking he was ok after the match. The front-rower admitted aggression is part and parcel of his role.
“That’s my job and as a team that’s what we want to do. Collectively as a pack we want to stand up to those sort of packs and I thought we did today.
“As Richard said if we can have consequence sets and play our sets out and kick long we are a dangerous team and we just have to hold onto the footy. Any bloke would tell you that you have more chance of scoring and I thought we did that today.”
