Scott Anderson is settling in well at the Wildcats and is hoping his new club can pick up an opening round win against Salford Red Devils on Sunday.
Wakefield welcomed new signings Anderson, Pita Godinet and Matt Ryan to the club on Monday, where they took part in their first training session.
Trinity signed NRL Grand Final winner Anderson from Brisbane Broncos in November but a delay on his Visa meant he couldn’t link up with the rest of the squad until earlier this week.
Anderson trained on Monday just a couple of hours after completing his 30-hour trip to the UK.
Speaking after only his second training session today, Anderson said: “It has been really good, I came in on Monday and the boys have been really welcoming, I am really enjoying my time so far.
“The last couple of days in training I have been linking up with Daniel (Smith) and although it is early days we are trying to get a little bit of a combination going on in the front-row.”
Anderson is getting to know one of his team mates particularly well as he is living with fellow new signing Ryan, speaking on this he said: “I have been living with Matt Ryan and he is a really good guy and it looks like I will be living with him for the rest of the year.”
The Australian prop has joined the Wildcats on a one-year deal and could make his debut in Sunday’s trip to Salford and he is looking forward to it: “It’s going to be a tough game with all the changes at Wakefield as well as at Salford.
“We are looking to go there and have a positive game and hopefully we will come away with the win.”
Tickets are still on sale for the Salford game from either the Ridings Centre Store or the Rapid Solicitors Stadium Box Office, travel to the AJ Bell Stadium is also on offer at £10 per person. Full ticket and travel details are available HERE.
Anderson, Ryan and Godinet were also speaking to Super League TV today and you can catch their interviews later this week.
