Jamie Langley: Rovers deserve a flogging
Hull KR forward Jamie Langley has describe Sunday’s convincing loss to Castleford Tigers as his side’s “low point of the season” and says he expects a “flogging” in training this week.
The Robins conceded 50 points for the first time this year after being completely outplayed by an in-form Castleford side – and it is not going to get any easier with the competition’s other form team, Warrington, up next in two weeks.
“I’m expecting a tough fortnight before our game against Warrington,” he told the Hull Daily Mail.
“We deserve it. We were in bright and early yesterday and now we have to put our heads down, take it on the chin and get on with it. We saw where we need to improve and we’ll improve as a team.
“It’s been the low point of the season. We went there pretty confident and we prepared really well all week before the game.
“We thought we had a good game plan to be effective at Cas, but from the first minute nothing went our way and it was a downward spiral after that.
“Castleford are a good side and don’t make many errors. They punish you when you make errors. We gave too many penalties away and spilled too much ball.
“We didn’t pose much of an attacking threat because we didn’t have a lot of energy from all the defending we had to do. And that’s what all of the good sides do. I’m taking nothing away from Castleford, they are a really good side. I’m gutted.”
