Miller ready for massive game

Jacob Miller says he is ready to fire in one of Wakefield’s biggest games in years in the Challenge Cup semi-final on Saturday.

Miller and Trinity travel to Leigh on the weekend to face Warrington in the Cup.

The Australian halfback is fully aware of the importance of the match, with a spot in the final up for grabs, to both the Wakefield club and its fans.

“Definitely its a massive occasion for the club, the fans and ourselves,” he told Love Rugby League.

“We know how long its been since the club have been in a big game like this besides the Million Pound game so we’re looking forward to a big game this weekend.”

Miller has decent Cup experience, having played in the final at Wembley with Hull FC in 2013.

“Definitely the Million Pound game was something else, I was lucky to play there [a Cup final] a few years back at Hull so that was probably the biggest game of my career,” he said.

“But it’s definitely one of them and it’s going to be a massive occasion.

“We know how hard this week’s going to be, Warrington are one of the biggest benchmarks and have been for a while now.

“We’re confident in the group we have and what we’re doing as a group that we can go out there and give it a good crack.”

Wakefield are likely to be without a number of players through injury, including Jonny Molloy, Matty Ashurst and Bill Tupou.

But they will also welcome back the likes of Scott Moore and Danny Kirmond back for the Warrington fixture.

“We picked up a few injuries over the weekend and we’ve got a few coming back so not ideal but its the way it is,” Miller admitted.

“We’ve been pretty lucky this year with injuries so it’s a shame it’s happened this week but everyone goes through it.

“We’ve got a pretty deep squad and we’re pretty confident whoever come in will do a good job.”
