Kear reacts to Wakefield Wildcats'

WAKEFIELD Wildcats head coach John Kear has given his reaction to the Super League XV fixture list released today. The Wildcats begin their challenge with a trip to Harlequins on January 30 before consecutive home games against Catalans Dragons (February 7) and champions Leeds Rhinos (February 14).

Kear said: "It's not the easiest of starts for us or the Wakefield fans having to head down to London, but we'll be looking forward to facing Brian McDermott's team at the Twickenham Stoop.

"Quins proved last year that they could be dangerous opponents and playing in front of their own fans they'll be determined to make the best possible start to the season by collecting both points. It'll be up to us to counter that challenge."

He added: "The Catalans were a much improved side by the end of the 2009 season and we'll have to be on our form to withstand their challenge when we open the season at the Hearwell Stadium. The Dragons came close to making the 2009 Grand Final and they'll want to build on that in 2010.

"We finished fifth and we too have ambitions to improve on that placing. It should be a fascinating battle." Kear said: "It's all exciting stuff. Whichever way you look there are riveting encounters and there's going to be plenty on offer for Wildcats fans this year.

"I've no doubt playing standards will have risen again and most of the Super League clubs have recruited well during the break. "We're going into the 2010 season full of confidence and after seeing this mouth-watering fixture list, I just can't wait."
