Defeat would be “catastrophic” for Wakefield, says Kirmond

Wakefield captain Danny Kirmond has left fans in no doubt about where this Saturday’s Million Pound Game ranks in his career – right at the very top.

The Wildcats take on Bradford with Super League status on the line, and Kirmond admits that if they lose, it would be catastrophic for them as a club.

Kirmond says it’s vital the club remain in the top flight to ensure they continue to grow, and says that it’s important they win on Saturday.

“It’s the biggest by a mile. I’m just from down the road and it’s the biggest game the club has had since the last Million Pound Game,” he said.

“If you look at what’s at stake, it’s just ginormous, there’s nothing bigger, to keep the club in Super League and keep it full-time, especially with the way the club is buzzing behind the scenes.

“I think if the club dropped down, it would be catastrophic really. We’ve got things in place next year that is going to push the club forward again and it’s important we stay in Super League to keep that momentum.”
