Wildcats coach Richard Agar is looking forward to taking his side to North Wales today and is confident it will give his squad focus ahead of the coming season.
Trinity travelled to Eirias Park, North Wales this morning to begin their three-day training camp. They will be able to use indoor and outdoor facilities during the trip including a fitness suite, athletics arena and swimming pools.
The whole squad is travelling to the premier sporting facility, minus three new signings Pita Godinet, Scott Anderson and Matt Ryan, who are continuing to wait for the final visa paperwork that will allow them to fly to the UK and join up with the squad.
Speaking at Monday’s Super League launch, Agar said: “We are looking forward to this week and going down to North Wales.
“We had put the camp back to get the new signings here, but we missed that and it looks like we are going to go without the guys who obviously aren’t here.
“The trip will enable us to build up to Round One with the players we know we are going to have available for that game.”
As well as focusing at matters on the field Agar will also look at the squad off field, he said: “As has been our preparation over the last couple of seasons, we will do a little bit of work off the field.
“We will look at what we want to achieve as a squad. Not as much goal setting but how we want to be as a squad. What our standards and behavior is going to be like over the year.
“But at the same time we will use the trip as a good team building opportunity and have a little bit of fun while we are down there.”
