Wildcats head coach Richard Agar has been speaking to Wildcats TV ahead of the trip to London to face the Broncos tomorrow, kick-off 3pm.
The Wakefield chief has selected an unchanged 19-man squad to take down the M1 with a near full strength team expected to line up against Tony Rea’s side. Only Lee Smith is missing through injury after the return of Andy Raleigh and Tim Smith in the 36-20 victory over Hull KR.
In a preview to what Agar told Wildcats TV, which you can see in full HERE, the head coach says his teams attitude is vital.
“When the effort and endeavour is right that does sometimes cover up when some of the technicalities aren’t there. If we can keep replicating that sort of effort then it will give us a greater opportunity to fix the other things up.”
Last season’s visit to South West London didn’t go to plan as Trinity were well beaten 36-0 and Agar admits some of his players have mentioned that to him in the run-up to tomorrow’s game.
“Privately one or two have mentioned it to me and we’re aware of one or two things we might change. It was an evening kick-off, this is an afternoon one so we’ll be changing one or two things up.
“We are putting the focus on ourselves and making sure our attitudes are right but me banging on all week saying make sure your attitude is right is not what’s required. We need to show the right level of aptitude in training and train with the right intensity and I think we’ve been able to do that based on the strides we had this week and the fact the boys are really happy and confident that we got back to playing a little bit more like we know we can.
“Despite their scores, London themselves will feel they aren’t too far away and there was enough in both their games to suggest there is a team in there and not far off getting its first win. We need to be guarded against that, it is a tough place to go for different reasons.
“Apart from the fact the qualities that London possess as a side there’s travel and things like that so we’ll prepare well and look after ourselves and make sure our attitude is very close to what we got last week.”
Agar also discusses his reasons at dual-registering Kyle Trout with Doncaster and gives his view on his struggle to get a number of his first team some game time. He also looks back to last week’s performance while giving a full preview to the fixture at the Stoop, to watch the full video, click HERE.
