Wakefield Trinity PDRL’s Adam Fleming claims confidence is high amongst the squad as our side heads into the fourth festival of the year in Leeds.
After an unbeaten start, which was seen Wakefield beat both the Rhinos and the Wolves, the side has sprung into life in 2022. Following back-to-back Grand Final appearances, head coach Lee Whiteley has built a strong side, with notable names leading the side to victory week on week.
2022 saw a change in procedure, however, with the game reverting back to festival format it started out as back in 2017. This sees Trinity face three sides per tournament as all clubs come together at one venue.
This weekend we head to Oulton as the Rhinos host their first festival of the year, with Trinity set to face Castleford Tigers and a new outfit in Bradford Bulls.
“The confidence is pretty good at the minute, things are looking good. With the previous festivals, I think we are working well together and things are looking bright.
“There is a lot of improvement from other teams across the whole of the PDRL pool. In general, we are working together and staying strong in both training and games.”
The old format seems to be very popular amongst teams, with the inclusivity of the game really showing over the opening weeks of the calendar. This has seen Trinity find some form, as multiple games are played in one day, allowing the side to build up some momentum throughout the day.
“With the games going back to festivals this year, it gives us time to prepare week-on-week, especially with us training every Monday. We are always focused on the next challenge, winning the games and remaining unbeaten throughout the season.”
