Hull KR: Chester wants better behaviour

Hull KR coach Chris Chester says he will not tolerate ill-discipline from his players next season.

The Robins boss doesn’t want a repeat of 2014, when off-field issues plagued his side and contributed heavily to a disappointing ninth-place finish.

Jonny Walker and Wayne Ulugia were released due to off-field incidents while Adam Walker and Greg Eden were subject to disciplinary procedures.

“Discipline has been a big problem for us and that won’t happen again on my watch,” Chester told the Hull Daily Mail.

“This season we have had to sack one player and release another from his contract.

“Culture wise, we are bringing the right people in to change that.

“Things that have gone on in the past won’t happen again while I’m in charge.

“Things will get nipped in the bud and it doesn’t matter if you are Mick Weyman or Connor Robinson, you’ll get treated exactly the same from me.

“I’ve said that from day one and I’ll say that at the start of pre-season too.

“If you play well, you’ll keep your place in the team.

“Things will change, but they are changing for the better.”
