WEBSTER EXPECTING ELECTRIC ATMOSPHERE FOR SEASON OPENER

posted on 24 October 2014

Wakefield Wildcats Head Coach, James Webster, has given his reaction to the 2015 fixtures that were published on Sunday evening.

The announcement saw the Wildcats faced with an exciting derby opener at Castleford on Sunday 8th February, followed by a home game against Hull KR in Round Two.

Webster, who is currently preparing for his first pre-season in charge, has expressed his excitement for the upcoming year and is expecting a large following for the opening game.

"It's very unusual to play a derby game for the first fixture of the season. If you look at past seasons, we took really large numbers with us to both the Widnes and Salford season openers so that makes for a big crowd and great atmosphere this year."

"I'm sure all the players and fans are really looking forward to it."

The first three games see the Wildcats up against Castleford, Hull KR and Widnes, a trio of fixtures where the Wildcats will be keen to gain some valuable points.

"With two teams being relegated from last season I don't see any games as more winnable than others. Both Castleford and Widnes were outstanding last year so I see those as tough fixtures whilst Hull KR have seemed to have had the wood over us last year so we will be keen to get a result there."

"I can't see a reason why we won't be going in to every game this season thinking we are in with a good chance of getting a result." 

The list of fixtures has had everyone talking but Webster insists it is not something that he over thinks. 

"I am not one to really try and dissect a draw at the start of the season, you just can't tell which players will be available for both your own team or the opposition on any given week through injury or suspension."

"All I know is that you have to play every team home and away."
