Hull KR behind target, says Craig Sandercock

Despite moving into the top eight of Super League with a fantastic derby victory over Hull FC, Hull KR boss Craig Sandercock has declared his side behind their targets, insisting they must now cement their place in the play-offs without any further hiccups.

Sandercock believes the Robins are four points behind where he would have liked them to be at this point in the season, but given how he believes there is plenty more to come from his side, he has led the rallying cry for them to kick on in the second period of the 2014 season.

“I’m not a big one on targets, but we would like to be four points better off,” he told the Hull Daily Mail. “We’re disappointed that we’re not where we are, but we have sneaked back into the top eight and our aim now is to stay there.

“There is a lot more to come from us. For us, it was about getting the two points and now we need to build on that. The Salford match could have gone either way, but we were very disappointed to lose the Widnes game.

“Hopefully, we can get a few wins to make up for that.”
