Agar sees room for improvement despite Wakefield’s win over Catalans

Winning a game and recording back-to-back victories is always a good sign, though like any win, there is always room for improvement and that is exactly what Wakefield Wildcats coach Richard Agar expects to see.

Recording a 30-12 victory over the Catalan Dragons, the Wildcats play-off hopes are kept alive, with Agar wanting to see continued improvement in his side.

“It would be nice but I still think we’ve a lot of improving to do,” said Agar.

“We could have been a bit more ruthless but we’ve improved in the areas we needed to, especially in defence. To concede two tries is a good effort, so we are making some headway.

“I was really pleased with most of it. I thought we started a little bit slow and we finished a bit scruffy. I think we got a bit excited when daylight began to appear between the teams.

“It was difficult playing into the wind and to come in at half-time with a lead was a good effort. It made it hard to shift the ball about at times.”

It was a different story for Catalans, with coach Laurent Frayssinous disappointed with his side’s discipline and the lack of energy from his side.

“I was not happy with our performance, especially with our lack of discipline and how soft we were in the first half,” said Frayssinous.

“There was a lack of energy, which is not like us. You have to be tough and play hard for your team and that was not the case in the first half.”
