Australian centre Dean Collis has revealed the reasoning behind the Wildcats special victory dance in tomorrow’s edition of ‘The Trinity’.
The second matchday programme of the year is not to be missed with a fantastic in-depth interview with Collis where he looks back on his pre-season and the opening rounds of Super League. He also discusses his own form, the challenge in front of Wakefield against the Giants and that famous Harlem Shake.
Last week’s 28-0 victory over London will always be remembered for the special victory celebration called the Harlem Shake as the video of the team went viral on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. The dance proved what a close group the current Wildcats squad are and as a taster to the full length feature interview, Collis explains how it all came about.
“A few of the boys practiced the night before, especially Paul Aiton and Ali Lauitiiti who were doing some moves on Saturday. Danny Kirmond just came up with the idea and everyone got on board and I was videoing it so I wasn’t involved because I’m not much of a dancer but it was great to see them.
“It was very funny and all the boys had a really good laugh with it.”
The flamboyant centre also discusses his aims for the campaign and how he has to manage his body to make sure he’s fit and available for selection week-in, week-out.
“My pre-season was a bit disrupted along with a number of the squad, I can’t do everything that the team does and I have to manage my load with a few different things.
“I was out on the field a lot more this year than I was last which was good so it was just a matter of getting my match fitness up and I feel really good at the moment. Managing my off season carefully has really helped.”
A whole host of the usual features will be in the 56-page edition including a must read head coach column Richard Agar with his thoughts on France, Chris Annakin and the Giants challenge. Chief Executive James Elston also has a page while Andy Raleigh is interviewed in the getting to know you section.
