Wakefield Wildcats have been handed a big boost ahead of their crucial clash against Leeds Rhinos, with news Danny Kirmond penned a new deal.
The Wildcats need to win the clash to keep alive their hopes of making the Super League play-offs and the news of Kirmond’s deal will give the whole club a lift.
Kirmond, who signed from Huddersfield two years ago, has been in great form for Richard Agar’s men this season and the coach is delighted with the deal that will keep him at Rapid Solicitors Stadium until 2016.
“His form has ensured that there have been a number of clubs casting an envious eye over him and means we’ve had to fight pretty hard for his signature,” said Agar.
“It’s great for our club. He’s our captain and takes his role very seriously indeed.
“In the days where players can move quite easily and in a market that’s very player driven, it’s great for us that we can hold onto our best talent.”
The in-form second row forward is now hoping to recover from a knee injury in time to take his place in the side against Leeds and is also pleased to have committed his future.
“I’ve made no secret that it’s a club I wanted to stay at,” Kirmond said. “It’s the most I’ve enjoyed my rugby since leaving Featherstone.
“I feel the club is going in the right direction.”
Wakefield could be boosted further by the news that Agar himself is locked in talks with the club regards penning a new deal.
