Wakefield’s new boys are looking to be involved in the Wildcats first round game against Salford Red Devils this Sunday.
After arriving earlier this week, Pita Godinet, Scott Anderson and Matt Ryan are all in coach Richard Agar’s 19-man squad for the trip to the AJ Bell Stadium.
Since receiving their visas last weekend the boys have been busy, facing the media on a number of occasions since stepping off the plane. They have also only had a four day pre-season thus far with their new team mates but insist they are all ready to play this weekend.
Godinet, who signed from New Zealand Warriors said: “We are excited about Sunday and just can’t wait to get out there. Hopefully I will make my debut and put on a good show.
“We have heard a lot of stories about them (Salford) and the make of their team and what they have done as a team. But we are going to think of our own team and go out there and give it to them on Sunday.”
Anderson, an NRL Grand Final winner said: “It was frustrating waiting for the visa but we are here now and it is time to get down to business and start playing some football.
“I’m not worried about playing on Sunday, I can’t see it being a problem for me.”
Back-row Ryan spoke about the prospect of making his Super League debut this weekend: “The way they play football over here is something I am looking forward to. I like how close the crowd is to you and I am looking forward to a good atmosphere.”
Tickets for the Salford game are no longer on sale from the club, but you can still buy your tickets on the gate at the AJ Bell Stadium on Sunday with prices at:
