Danny McGuire provides Hull KR recruitment update

Danny McGuire has confirmed Hull Kingston Rovers are set to sit tight in their quest to sign a forward.

The Robins’ head of recruitment compiled a list of potential targets following injuries to Mose Masoe and Weller Hauraki, which left the club’s forward pack stretched before the season had even started.

However, no deals have come to fruition in the past fortnight and Rovers will now bide their time before making another move.

“We put together a list of players that we had a look but nothing came to fruition to be honest,” he said.

“We’re still on the lookout, there’s a few mentions of names who could become available but there’s no news from us at the minute.

“We want to get another middle in, definitely, our stance on that hasn’t changed, but Tony (Smith) wants to make sure it’s the right person.

“We want to be proactive and in a good position with the squad but we want to make sure it’s the right person too. There’s going to be some movement in Australia and we will be ready when the right person becomes available.

“We’ll sit tight a little longer. After the performance on Friday, the boys were really strong in the middle, but we need to add another player in that position if we want to be a good team as the season progresses.”
