Wildcats head coach Richard Agar says doing the simple things well earned his side a superb 46-10 victory away at Salford City Reds.

Richard Agar was happy with the victory over Salford.

The visitors had eight different try scorers in their first victory for five games which has kept the Wildcats in with a chance of reaching the play-offs after all 27 rounds are completed.

You can listen to Agar’s full post-match press conference HERE as he tells the media it was a vital two points.

“I’m really happy, we said coming into it that it was one we felt we couldn’t let slip and it was a must win game so pleased to get the win,” admitted Agar.

“I thought we started a bit slow and it took us 10-15 minutes to get into it. I thought the first try had a good effect on us, it calmed our nerves a little bit and I thought overall we won the physical contest.

“I thought our boys in the first half were brilliant in Justin Poore and Kyle Amor in particular off the bench, Danny Kirmond and Paulie Aiton on the back of that. It’ a simple game sometimes and I thought they carried the ball really, really strongly into the Salford defensive line and it gave us enough of a platform.

“We probably learned a few lessons over the last few weeks. Our kicking game didn’t cause them heaps of problems tonight but having that ability to turn them around and get the ball behind them to set our defensive line helped us. I thought that left us to do what we’ve been wanting to do for a number of weeks which is having more energy in our tanks when we needed it.”

The Trinity boss sung the praises of Frankie Mariano after his return amongst others while said his outside backs were in top form at the Salford City Stadium.

“Our back three are all really prominent when we’re going well and I thought Foxy caught some terrific high kicks tonight and both him and Benny (Cockayne) along with Rich returned the ball really well tonight.

“It’s simple but very effective for us in showing lots of energy and strong carries coming out of back field. We had a lot of contributions from every different unit and we didn’t dress it up too much. We played simple and effective and won the physical battle in doing lots of the little things right.”

The next Wildcats game is at home to London Broncos at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium on Sunday 23rd June and it is one that isn’t to be missed!

Wakefield have made a sensational offer for the game which will mark Trinity’s 140th year with adults being allowed entry for just £5 while children are absolutely free!

All the fun gets underway from 11am so make sure you spread the word so the city of Wakefield can back the boys in the crucial clash against London.

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
