We were never panicking at Wakefield, says Danny Kirmond

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats captain Danny Kirmond insists the squad were never panicking about their form, after back-to-back Super League wins catapulted them clear of the relegation zone.

With the Wildcats tipped to be amongst the teams to struggle this campaign, late recruitment saw them firmly entrenched in relegation trouble from the beginning of the season. However, wins over Hull FC and Widnes on the road have opened up an eight-point gap between the Wildcats and the two teams in the mire – Bradford Bulls and London Broncos.

However, Kirmond was quick to rebuff claims that his side were ever worrying about relegation, admitting they are still some way off being what he described as the ‘finished article’ in 2014.

“It’s a really good place to be. There’s always a good atmosphere around cam; the boys enjoy each others company and we always have a laugh, but it’s definitely made things a bit easier when you get a couple of wins under your belt.

“There’s never been any panic in the camp; fans and people in the media can create a storm by tipping us for relegation, but we’ve always been quite confident that things would come together.

“We’re not resting on our laurels now we’ve got two wins on the bounce; this isn’t the finished article by any stretch of the imagination.”
