Rovers have one of toughest tasks, says Cockayne

by: Joe Whitley, April 4, 2014, 1:34 pm

Hull KR winger Ben Cockayne claims the Robins have the toughest Challenge Cup draw of the fourth round as they prepare to host Warrington Wolves on Sunday.

Both Wolves and the Rovers have enjoyed inconsistent starts to 2014, but the two sides seem to be picking up form just in time for this clash. Indeed, the East Hull outfit have won their last two Super League matches while Warrington have lost only one in their last five.

“Our forward pack has been brilliant and we’ve just got to carry on with that, and carry on improving,” he said.

“We just want to try to put a run together and perform well. We’d love to get a win this weekend, but the performance is important too. We’ve probably got one of the biggest tasks this weekend of anyone left in the Cup, but we’re looking to get the win.

“It would be unbelievable to get to Wembley. Growing up as a kid you dream about playing in a Challenge Cup final and it would be a dream come true.

“I don’t think as a team we are quite at the level we want to be at yet. We’ve a few new faces, and have had a few injuries, and we haven’t quite been able to get the consistency in team selection yet. There is always room for improvement – we can improve and that’s what we will be looking to do.”
