Trinity prop-forward Anthony Mullally is expecting a tough test from Sheffield Eagles when the Wildcats travel to Bramall Lane on Sunday, (kick-off 3pm).

Despite the Eagles knowing they have no chance of gaining Super League promotion, there is still plenty to play for as a win on Sunday could see them finish as the second-highest team from the Kingstone Press Championship and finish their fantastic season on a high.

However, with a fourth-placed finish and home advantage in the Million Pound Game at stake, the Wildcats cannot afford to slip up this weekend and Mullally admits everyone needs to be fully focused.

"It's a huge game for us on Sunday. They're a dangerous team and have caused some teams problems in these Super 8's."

"We've got to go over there with the right mindset and if we do that we're confident we've got enough to get the job done."

"We all know what's at stake if we win. Although, to be honest we've not even spoke about the Million Pound Game, everyone's just focused on beating Sheffield on Sunday."

The 24-year old has been pleased with the response shown by the squad following the defeat against his former club Widnes just a fortnight ago and believes if they can keep their focus on Sunday that would go a long way in deciding the outcome of the game.

"All the lads have trained really well over the last few weeks and responded to the Widnes game. We didn't play too well last week against Halifax, it was a scrappy game but we were just pleased to grind it out and get the two points."

"We showed plenty of character and if we can go into the Sheffield game in a similar way and just tidy some things up then that should get us the win."

The Irish international arrived at Belle Vue in July having spent the last few seasons with Huddersfield Giants and was quick to underline how much he is enjoying his time in the Red, White & Blue, whilst also hailing the team spirit among the squad.

"I've loved my time here so far, it's been great"

"We're all a tight-knit bunch and everyone gets on well with each other so it's a great place to be around."

"I've been playing decent minutes and I think I've been going alright. Hopefully that continues over the next two games and this club stays in Super League where it belongs."
