Wakefield Wildcats head coach Richard Agar has hailed the 'real bonus' that influential skipper Danny Kirmond has been given the all-clear to play against Widnes Vikings on Monday.

There were fears the 27-year-old could be out for the season after he suffered a ruptured tendon in his finger during Monday's 27-26 victory at Hull FC.

But a specialist on Wednesday gave the skipper the go-ahead to continue playing - with the Vikings next up on Monday.

Agar told the Wakefield Express: "It's terrific news on him. He may not need an operation and if he does we can put it off until the end of the season.

"So as long as pain allows, and he's comfortable with it, which he is, we're not going to lose him so that's a real bonus.

"We came out of Monday's game thinking we might lose Justin (Poore) on that tackle, albeit for a week, and we thought we were going to lose Kirmo potentially for the rest of the season so it's great news in that both players are clear to play this week."


Kirmond has been in top form of late, running in ten tries in his last eight matches, and he is delighted to continue to help the Wildcats' play-off push.

He said: "I've got a splint on there for a few weeks so I'm able to play which is good news and I'm really happy about that.

"I've had some similar finger injuries before and they've put me out for about eight weeks."

"I've been playing quite well and I'm happy with my form so the last thing I needed was to be missing a few weeks, so to get the all clear to play is really good for me."
