Gleeson Extends to 2007Wolves hooker Mark Gleeson has agreed an extension to his current contract, which was due to run out this November, until November 2007.Gleeson commented on his new contract, "Yes, I am pleased to commit to the Wolves for another two years. I have enjoyed my time at the club and want that to continue for the foreseeable future, I am settled here and happy with the set up behind the scenes."MAN OF THE MATCH ON SUNDAY, HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR PERFORMANCE AGAINST WIGAN?It was nice to pick up the award voted by the sponsors, but I feel that I have a lot of areas of my game that could be improved and that is something I will be focussing on in training. You could say I am my biggest critic; but that is the only way that you will ever make it to the top of your game.THE SUPPORTERS ARE ON CLOUD NINE AT THE MOMENT, WHATĂS THE MOOD LIKE WITHIN THE SQUAD?Honestly at the moment it is really good, there is a really good camaraderie among the players on and off the training field and I think that can be seen when we take to the field. But the fans support has been fantastic; the vocal support on Sunday really got us going. When itĂs like that itĂs a real adrenaline rush to have the fans shouting you and just making a lot of noise.YOU HAVE GONE FROM PLAYING AGAINST YOUR BROTHER TO PLAYING WITH, WAS IT ODD AT FIRST?Not at all; I donĂt think of him as my brother when we take to the field he is just another team mate and whilst he was at St Helens he was an opponent. Plain and simple; keep the emotions out of the game and remain professional about it.WHAT AMBITIONS DO YOU HAVE IN YOUR CAREER?The biggest ambition for any sports person is to play for their country and that is something that I am aiming for. I would love to play in an Ashes Series; to me that would be the biggest accolade of my career. But being consistent and playing week in and week out is another aim and that one is closer to home for me at the moment.ANOTHER BIG GAME AT THE WEEKEND WITH THE TRIP TO ODSAL, WHOĂS THE DANGERMEN IN YOUR EYES YOU NEED TO STOP IN THE BULLS SIDE?Bradford are a team full of danger men; but for me it would have to be big Vainkolo and Fielden. But there are so many outstanding talents in the team that you have to go in with the view that all 17 have to be watched and kept under control.WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR BROTHERĂS MUSICAL SKILLS?I think he is pretty good ű he is getting better!IF YOU COULD MAKE ONE RULE CHANGE IN THE GAME WHAT WOULD IT BE?I would have the big screen and video referees at every game to assist the referee in difficult decision making.
