AGAR WARY OF LONDON THREAT

posted on 22 June 2013

Head coach Richard Agar says he is very much wary of the threat the London Broncos can cause despite their recent poor form.

Richard Agar prepares his team for the visit of London.

The two sides come into this game in very different moods with Wakefield comfortably defeating Salford 46-10 last time out while the Broncos were hammered 82-10 at home to Warrington.

Despite that though the Wildcats coach believes the London outfit still have plenty to offer and his side will be taking nothing for granted on Sunday.

“I can’t sit here and tell you that they have been in blinding form because they’ve not, but having said that we watched the Castleford game where they were leading and leading quite healthy until the last ten minutes.

“There is no doubt they have a performance in them and there is no doubt they have some experienced players that on any given day, in the right form and the right mood can catch you out and cause you problems.”

The Broncos sit one place from the bottom in Super League having only won 3 of their 18 games; however Agar believes they still have the players to cause any defence in Super League trouble on their day.

“We were just watching the tape from their last three or four performances, Luke Dorn is still a player that given space and given the right situation can pick up on anybody that is prepared to not be as honest as they need to be in the defensive line.

“Whether that comes from loose passes, chasing kicks down, people not tying in on defence or people turning in or out, they have got some players like Luke and probably Dan Sarginson in that as well that can take advantage of a lack of honesty in your defence.”

When the two sides came head-to-head earlier in the season Trinity were able to secure one of their most impressive wins of the season defeating the Broncos 28-0 at the Twickenham Stoop.

The Wakefield coach believes if they are to achieve a similar success this time round they need to concentrate on what they are doing rather than the opposition.

“We have got to turn up and look after our own game, make sure we’re really honest in everything we do defensively, we have talked about the players that given the right opportunity and space can cause you some problems.

“At the same time we are coming into the game with enough confidence, desire and motivation. We fancy coming home strong and we have got some experience of doing that last year, we are very much looking forward to what we can achieve out of the rest of this season.”
