Sorry i may have mislead some people by not mentioning the official
response from Casper Dik which is :-

"tcp wrappers cannot work on inetd launched udp based services.

For TCP, the wrappers work by interposing on the handoff between the
connect (handled by inetd) and starting the daemon; with UDP, the daemon
is tart for the first packet to arrive; if that packet is allowed the
daemon starts and all further calls will be allowed through.

Use a proper firewall instead."

The SunFreeware readme i mentioned ( located here ) mentions tftpd as being
supported so i guess i dont know why if it cannot be possible.
