Wakefield are “feeling good”, insists Smith

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats coach Brian Smith believes that the extended break his side have been given could be the impetus for them to revive their season.

After 16 straight defeats has left the Wildcats staring at the middle eights later this year, Smith has acted in the transfer market in the break, signing four players to freshen up Wakefield’s squad.

And ahead of their clash against Hull FC tonight, Smith believes that the break has done his side good and they could be ready to improve.

“You don’t get a lot of 10-day breaks,” Smith told the Yorkshire Evening Post. “The payback is that we’ve got two games in a few days, but certainly we’ve got truckloads of work done in those 10 days. We feel like we are in a pretty good spot for a really good performance.”

“Yesterday’s session was the best we’ve had since I’ve been here. The boys were feeling good about themselves.

“Sometimes a breath of fresh air is all that everyone needs. I hope this 10-day period has given us chance to freshen ourselves up and really have a crack at it.”
