Wakefield a ‘graveyard’, according to Leeds boss Richard Agar

Richard Agar spent almost three seasons at Wakefield, but he will travel to the Mobile Rocket Stadium on Monday as Leeds head coach, looking back fondly on his time at Trinity.

Agar knows that Wakefield cannot match Leeds in terms of facilities and the 49-year-old knows his side must have the right mindset to get past his opposition.

“It can be a graveyard for poor attitude, it’s not he most salubrious of surroundings, but I say that having loved my time there,” Agar said.

“The changing rooms aren’t the same as Headingley and the warm ups can sometimes get to you.

“We need to be in right frame of mind against a team who has gained confidence in the last few weeks.”

The Leeds boss will welcome back one player into the side that missed out against Wigan.

“Callum McLelland is over his illness so he will come back into contention, but I think our squad will be pretty similar.

“It was a tough game the other night so we’ve still got a team run to see who’s where.”
