AGAR THRILLED WITH DERBY VICTORY

posted on 9 September 2013


Wildcats Richard Agar was pleased to end the season with a derby decider victory over Castleford Tigers.

Richard Agar was pleased to end the season on a high.

In a pulsating clash, Liam Kay’s last minute try won the game for the Wildcats to take the bragging rights into the off season and finish the campaign above the Tigers.

Havign seen his side on the wrong end of some close score lines this season, Agar was happy to see the result go in Trinity’s favour on this occasion.

“There’s been a number of games this year where we’ve gone down late in similar circumstances.  I’d have had no complaints if the result had gone the other way.  I felt we created enough chances to win two or three games and didn’t put them away.

“We felt for long periods we were the team playing on the front foot and making the line breaks.  Defensively we let a couple of soft ones in which has been a bit of a story for us.  But a good way to finish and I thought the kid (Liam Kay) took his tries exceptionally well.

“We’ve had an incredibly tough couple of weeks.  We’ve just spoken in the dressing room about from where we started a couple of years ago, we’ve been on a bit of a journey and enjoyed each others company.  Not many people gave us a chance at the start of last season and whilst this last quarter has been a bit tough for us, we felt we’ve built a bit up for ourselves.

“It’s deflated us and taken our wind out of our sails a little bit, and made some of the playing squad a little bit angry.  We’ve got it out of the way now and we can hopefully try and move forward.”
