WILDCATS TV: SYKES LOOKING FOR REVENGE

posted on 16 February 2013

Paul Sykes has told Wildcats TV he is aiming to take revenge out on London Broncos on Sunday after his Wakefield debut ended in a 36-0 defeat in the capital last year.

Paul Sykes is eager to face his former employers.

The half-back joined from Bradford midway through last season with his first appearance in the red, white and blue ending out in a comprehensive victory for his former club.

The 31-year-old spent made well over 100 appearances for the London based outfit over a seven year period before switching back to the Bulls en-route to the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.

Trinity will be looking to make it two victories in a row at the Stoop and you can see the full interview with Sykes HERE. A snippet of the interview is below where he discusses the importance of beating the Broncos.

“In my opinion I’ll be looking to avenge that result from last year, although it’s in the past we want to put right the wrongs from last year.

“We needed last week, just the performance. We know we can score tries it was the defensive work and in the tackle that we had to work on that let us down at Bradford but we put it right against Hull KR and we’ve been training all week to do the same again this week.

“It’s amazing what you can do when the forwards lay a platform for you, it makes our jobs as halves a lot easier. We can get our hands on the ball a bit more and put the outside backs into space, if you don’t get as much go-forward it’s hard playing on the back foot so that’s what every half would want from the forwards.”

Tickets for the Wildcats trip down the M1 are available up until noon today (Saturday) from the Wildcats retail outlets and will also be available on the day at Twickenham Stoop. If you are travelling to London without a ticket you will need to purchase yours from the Broncos ticket office as there will be no cash turnstiles.

Tickets are priced at £20 for adults, £12 concessions while juniors will be charged just £5.

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
