  3. Shaun Lunt says the arrival of Zach Dockar-Clay has reaffirmed his desire to play even more minutes for Hull KR rather than take an opportunity to be rested.The 21-year-old former junior Kiwis captain was brought to the club to add depth at both hooker and half-back, providing coach Tim Sheens with valuable options in both positions, while also offering a peace of mind should injuries arise.But while immediate suggestions the youngster's presence would offer Lunt an opportunity to ease his...

  4. Rugby league columnist Paul Cooke offers his take on the England squad for the Test against Samoa. The 20-man England squad announcement for a one-off Test against Samoa threw up a couple of interesting names.Most notably Chris McQueen of the Gold Coast Titans, who qualifies due to his father's English heritage. There's lots made of heritage of players, lots made of players declaring allegiances to a specific nation.We make a great deal of this in the media, it's frowned upon in most cases....

Tim Sheens says Hull KR cannot rely on just their 'strongest' 17 players on match-days to mount a successful promotion charge to Super League.The Robins coach utilised 29 members of his squad across three matches over an eight-day Easter period, reigning victorious over Championship rivals Featherstone and top-flight outfit Leigh Centurions. Youthful stars including Will Oakes and Will Jubb were blooded, whilst assistant coach and experienced winger David Hodgson also received a run-out.Whilst... View the full article

Years of painstaking work had gone into reaching the top flight and it had finally been achieved.His association with Hull KR may have ended over seven years ago, but the Papua New Guinean's contributions on the field will forever live in the Robins' fans' memories.Stepping out on east Hull turf for the first time as a 26-year-old forward, on the recommendation of fellow PNG...

  7. Paul Cooke gives his take on Rovers' win over his Leigh side in the Challenge Cup.Hull KR booked their place in the next round of the Challenge Cup with a fantastic victory over my club Leigh Centurions. I've been asked lots of times by lots of people if Rovers were good or if Leigh were just poor, the answer is the same every time.Absolutely no complaints from us, the better team won, KR deserved their win and we wish them good luck in the next round. For the Robins as a whole it gives the club... View the full article

  11. When Hull KR are drawn out of the proverbial hat in the Challenge Cup draw if they're given a home tie, no team will want to be paired with them, says Craig Murdock.I don't care if you're Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Castleford Tigers or Hull FC, in fact especially if you're Hull FC, nobody will want to go to Craven Park to face the Robins.For FC it would be the worst possible draw because we've seen what can happen in a derby. Form and league position go out of the window and I don't imagine... View the full article
  12. Toronto Wolfpack have won friends and plaudits this season with their proactive approach off the field and the way they've played on it, but not everyone is happy, writes Craig Murdock.There's been criticism, or should that be grumbling, about the one-sided nature of their games in League One. In five matches in the league Toronto have a 100 per cent record and have scored an astonishing 310 points, conceding just 37 in the process.It's clear they're going to walk the division and will be...
