No pressure, just excitement for Danny Kirmond ahead of MPG

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats captain Danny Kirmond has said that for him, this Saturday’s Million Pound Game with Bradford is all about excitement, not pressure.

Kirmond, who returned from a shoulder injury during Sunday’s loss to Sheffield Eagles, says this is the kind of game you want to be involved with the sport for, as both sides prepare to learn their fate for 2016 at Belle Vue this weekend.

And the Wildcats skipper says he’s feeling confident and looking forward to helping Wakefield secure their place in Super League again in 2016.

“I wouldn’t say I feel a lot of pressure, it is more excitement for me,” he said. “It is like playing in a final, those are the kind of games you look forward to as a player, and I think that’s the way you have got to look at it really.

“We have got to relish it and relish the challenge at the weekend. It is a big game, it is one we look forward to and one we can win Super League status (in).

“I am feeling confident about this weekend; my shoulder feels good, I am just a little bit sore from my first game yesterday. It is going to be a massive game and a massive atmosphere, both teams are selling a lot of tickets already, it looks like it is going to be a full house, which we haven’t played in front of for a long time. We are looking forward to putting a good performance in there and getting a win.”
