Wakefield skipper Danny Kirmond is in optimistic mood ahead of his team’s Magic Weekend clash with Castleford.
The Wildcats have been in terrible form recently, and have not won a Super League game since round two.
But Kirmond thinks that interim coach Stuart Dickens has inculcated a little more self-belief in the Trinity squad,
“We’ve been through a real tough time, our form hasn’t been very good at all,” he said, speaking at the launch event for Magic Weekend in Newcastle.
“We had a bit of change last week, Stuart Dickens has come in and installed a bit of belief in the boys again.
“It’s a big game this week, and it’s easy to get up for derby games, so we’ll be looking to put in a big performance against Castleford.”
Kirmond is a fan of Magic Weekend, which he feels is an event with a unique atmosphere in sport.
“I don’t think in any other sport really you can get that atmosphere, where all the fans come together and mix in with one another,” he said.
“It’ll be great to see everyone there again like it was last year, so I’m definitely looking forward to it.”
