We don’t see a loss coming, says Wakefield Trinity Wildcats star

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats prop Nick Scruton has bullishly claimed that the team don’t see a loss coming, as they prepare for their fifth game under the stewardship of new coach James Webster this evening.

Scruton – who signed a new two-year deal with the club yesterday – will be looking to make it five games unbeaten with Webster as head coach this evening, as they look to sink an out-of-sorts Widnes Vikings. And the prop insists that confidence is so high, that a loss is the last thing on the Wildcats’ mind at the moment.

“Everyone is really enjoying themselves and without a great fear of relegation anymore we’re playing some really good stuff,” Scruton said.

“It’s not easy when you lose your coach halfway through a season but it was a great move in putting Webbo there. He’s put his own stamp on things and freshened things up brilliantly. To be honest we can’t see a loss coming; we’re playing that well, and we’re really confident with everyone scrapping for each other. Everyone is working hard and training has been so good that we’re buzzing off each other.

“It’s a great place to be around at the moment, it has to be said.”
