Hull KR showed faith in me, says Dixon

Hull KR back Kieran Dixon has revealed that the Robins were the only club to offer him a deal when he was out injured, and he’s determined to repay the faith the club showed in him during 2014.

Dixon endured a terrible campaign last season, only playing the final four games of the season after suffering a horrific knee injury whilst on England Knights duty in 2013.

And Dixon has said that KR boss Chris Chester was the only coach that showed true belief in him, and he will show the club why they were right to invest such faith in him in 2015.

“It was an easy decision for me to choose Hull KR. I didn’t play last season before managing to squeeze four games in right at the end of the year,” Dixon told the Hull Daily Mail.

“There were a few clubs interested in me but none of the clubs were interested in putting a contract on the table and say, ‘we’ll take you now’.

“All the deals involved waiting to see me play and see how I came back from my knee injury. Hull KR came in early and said straight away here’s a three-year deal, subject to you passing a medical.

“They showed a lot of faith in me. I was positive about my knee, the surgeon was positive too and I knew there would be no problems so I signed the deal.

“Hull KR showed that faith in me when others wouldn’t and I am determined to repay that faith.”
