Wakefield Trinity Wildcats skipper Danny Kirmond believes that his team’s positive finish to last season will result in a much-improved campaign in Super League XX.

Kirmond said: “If you look back, it was probably a season that was very nearly a really good season. We ended up 12th but we could have easily finished eighth, looking at a couple of results that didn’t go our way.

“St Helens at home was really close, we could have nicked that one, and the two games against Bradford were disappointing performances from us. We weren’t too far away but we have some strong signings coming in and we are looking forward to next year.”

“Once the Super League status was secure the club did a great job making early signings, which we weren’t able to do last year,” he added.

“This year we are going in with a full squad. Everyone will be fit and ready to go at the start of pre-season, which gives us a massive advantage over last year.

“The second half of the season leaves us with a positive mindset. People have played well in the back half of the year and Webbo [head coach James Webster] has done a great job since coming in.”
