Preview: Wakefield Trinity Wildcats chairman speaks to us

In Monday’s edition of League Express, we’ve an exclusive interview with Wakefield Trinity Wildcats chairman Michael Carter, where he tells us about his first  year in charge of the club.

He talks to us about the future of the club in terms of a new ground, and just what it will take in order for the Wildcats to spend the full salary cap in 2015. But as a sneak preview, here’s Carter talking about the change of coach the club made midway through the season, with Carter paying tribute to both James Webster and former coach Richard Agar.

“We have a standing joke after the games, because I keep interviewing James in the corporate suites and introducing him as our ‘undefeated head coach’! There’s going to be a point where we lose a game – it could well be this weekend against Catalans. We then follow that up with Warrington, so with our reality head on we know there’ll be a point where we lose.

“You’ve got to give Webbo credit though, because he’s got the same group of players, but the defence is remarkable. We seem to be defending like our lives depend on it. Whether that is Webbo or the players themselves that have changed that, it’s really refreshing.

“I still believe that Richard Agar did a fantastic job for our club. He’s had to rebuild the side two or three sides now, and it can’t have been easy for him. It must have been a difficult job, but there was no hesitation – he said we’d build a side and we’d be competitive.”
