Fox ready to fire for Wildcats

Wakefield winger Peter Fox is relishing another season in Super League, with his love for the sport of rugby league completely undimmed by time.

Although Fox is now approaching the senior stage of his career, he still feels that he has plenty to offer the game.

“I’m firing on all cylinders at the moment,” he told Love Rugby League.

“I’m feeling the fittest I’ve ever been.

“I’m 30 at the end of this year, so every game I’m looking forward to. After the Leeds game recently, I wanted to play again straight away. That’s how much I love it.

“I have a lot of ambition still in the game. I’ve still got my goals that I want to achieve. I’m trying to do better all the time.

“Every single player always wants to learn more and improve, and I think you have to be like that to be at the top. 

“I’m certainly looking to have a really big year this year. I want to earn myself a new deal, as it’s my last year here.

“I’ll be striving to do that, and if anything else follows on, then that’d be fantastic. I’m going to take it game by game.”

With Wakefield’s squad looking a little thin this year in terms of depth, Fox knows that it is important for the senior players like himself to stand up and show leadership.

“One of my strong points is bringing enthusiasm and positivity to the team,” he explained.

“If I can add that to the team, then that’s fantastic. It’s a long season, so, touch wood, we won’t get any injuries. 

“The likes of Danny Kirmond and Ali Lauitiiti are leaders in our squad, so if they were to get injured, then it would be a blow.

“But we’ve got young lads coming through who are positive and ambitious, so it’ll give them a chance.”

Fox is genuinely enthused about the possible contribution to Trinity’s season that the youngsters in Richard Agar’s squad can provide.

Kyle Trout and Chris Annakin, for example, are absolute machines in the gym,” he added.

“They’ve played well in the trial games, so I’ll be excited to see them this season.”
