Molloy pays tribute to Wakefield support

Wakefield second-rower Jon Molloy claims that the opportunity to send the fans home happy recently is a reward for their continued commitment to the cause.

“They’re awesome,” said Molly of the Wakefield supporters.

“On Good Friday against Huddersfield and then again at Leeds on Easter Monday, you could hear them all the way through. The boys on the field appreciate what they do and we enjoy playing for them and in front of them.

“We wouldn’t be playing without fans. I’m a fan of the game myself and we all really appreciate it here at Wakefield.”

The 25-year-old has been a solid performer for the Wildcats this year, playing in numerous positions, including his preferred spot at second-row, prop and centre.

While he is happier in the back row, Molloy admits his main goal is to fully establish himself in the team.

“I just want to be consistent,” he said.

“Ideally I’d like to start games, like I did against Leeds, but I just want to kick on and play as many games as I can.

“I enjoy playing second-row, but if they want me to play in the middle I can do. I want to be one of those players who can play every game and play with the ball a bit more.”

Meanwhile, Wakefield head coach Chris Chester has ruled out a move for Danny Tickle.

The experienced forward is a free agent after his release from Widnes but Chester said: “We’re happy with the squad we’ve assembled. If some more quality becomes available then we’d be in the market, but we’re really happy with the depth of the squad and the results recently have been pleasing.”
