Wildcats aim to cause Giants upset

WAKEFIELD Wildcats head coach John Kear believes his side will have “every chance” of causing a Super League shock if they continue their determined performances at high-flying Huddersfield Giants on Sunday (kick-off 3pm).

Kear has been pleased with “five of the last six halves of rugby league” his side has produced against Warrington Wolves, Hull FC and Leeds Rhinos respectively.

The visit to the Galpharm Stadium will provide Wakefield with a very different kind of test - one that Kear is relishing.

“We played Warrington a couple of weeks ago and they were one of the form teams in Super League, now we’re playing Huddersfield who are probably the other,” he said.

“The difference with this is that we’re having to go into the lion’s den, they’re really in form and they’ll be at home.

“The last few years they’ve given us a touch-up or two so we know we’re going to have to be on our guard and we know they’re a really good rugby league team with great depth and quality to their squad.

“But we feel we’re getting better week in, week out. We’ll go there with the pressure taken off us, nobody will expect much of us, but I’ll tell you we’ll go there and have a real dig.”
