THERE will be an extra reason to cheer on Wakefield Trinity Wildcats when they take on Leeds Rhinos tonight. (Monday)

The Cats will be wearing special shirts to raise money for Wakefield Hospice.

And players will be putting aside their traditional red, white and blue in favour of a one-off green and yellow kit - the colours of the hospice.

‘Cats general manager Davide Longo said he hopes the initiative will raise up to £10,000.

He said: “As well as the money that will be raised, picking a match that will feature on Sky Sports will provide fantastic exposure for the hospice and the great work they do.

“We’re certain that the Wildcats supporters will recognise this and get behind the night and turn up in their numbers, not only to cheer on their team, but to also raise money for a hugely worthwhile local cause.”

Replicas of the limited edition kit are also available from the club shop and Ridings shopping centre store.

And fans can bid for the players’ shirts at auction after the game, which kicks off at 8pm.
