Wakefield Trinity Wildcats head coach Richard Agar will consider “freshening” his squad up for Sunday’s tough trip to Wigan Warriors.

Wildcats have a fully fit squad but Agar will ponder making changes following the tough Easter double header which leaves Wakefield going to the DW Stadium for their third Super League match in ten days.

“We have got the option of some fresh blokes,” said Agar, who will announce his 19-man squad for the match tomorrow.

“I think that’s the pleasing thing for us. We’ve got some guys who haven’t played any games at all over Easter and we feel are fit and fresh and probably ready for an opportunity so we’ll have a good look where we are.

“Everybody is available but we are going to take into consideration the option of freshening our squad up a little bit.”

Frankie Mariano, Kyle Wood, Kyle Trout and Matty Wildie were the most notable absentees for Wakefield over the Easter weekend and could be considered for Sunday.

Agar will have a bigger squad than usual at his disposal this weekend after confirming that players out on dual registration deals at other clubs will not be able to feature in the Tetley’s Challenge Cup this weekend.

The Wildcats boss is not wanting to have players cup tied for when Wakefield enter the competition in the next round.
