Skipper Danny Kirmond says the two points against London were vital as the Wildcats made it back-to-back victories to reignite their playoff hopes.

Skipper Danny Kirmond was more pleased with two points for the Wildcats than his own three tries.

The second-rower has led by example all season and he put in a fine display against the Broncos as he grabbed a hat-trick in the 46-14 win.

You can listen to the full interview with Kirmond HERE who was quick to heap praise on his team mates following the game.

“Our front row got us forward really well today and punched some holes in them. Kyle Amor, Justin Poore and Andy Raleigh, in his first game back after a while out, were really impressive for us.

”We got a bit of a roll on in the first-half, we’ve got people like Tim Smith who cause a lot of damage and Ben Cockayne on the back of that so we looked dangerous at times.”

Following the 27-year-olds treble today, he has now scored seven tries in his last five games and is arguably in the form of his career.

Despite this impressive run the former Huddersfield man was quick to play down his impact stating that the victory was far more important.

“It’s always nice to score tries obviously. I have scored a few in the last few weeks so it’s nice to get over but the main thing is it helps the team out and that’s the most important thing to me, getting the team going forward and getting the victory.

“I have not scored a hat-trick for a long time as it’s pretty rare for me to get over the try line normally, luckily I’m in a bit of form with try scoring at the moment so to get three I was ecstatic.

This win now means Trinity sit just four points of the playoff places with a game in hand as they aim to repeat the impressive finish to last season.

Kirmond believes the team just need to keep winning and take each game as it comes in order to start climbing the table.

“We’re in a results driven business and to get into that top eight we are going to have to pick more wins up, that’s two wins in a row now and that’s the most important thing for us.

“We are taking every game at a time, that’s what it is all about for us now and we need to keep notching these wins off. Obviously we’re going to compete in tougher games where we have got to play better than we did today but the wins the most important thing.”
