Hull KR will have to be at their best, says Sandercock

Hull Kingston Rovers boss Craig Sandercock admits his side will have to be at their very best if they are to cause an upset in the Tetley’s Challenge Cup this weekend.

The Robins host a resurgent Warrington Wolves this weekend with cup pride at stake and, despite conceding just one try in their last two outings with wins over Wakefield and Bradford, Sandercock still believes the Wolves will be a tough nut to crack on Sunday.

“Warrington are a class side and defensively and offensively, they’re very good,” Sandercock told the Hull Daily Mail.

“We know we have to be at our best, that’s for sure. They are one of the biggest tests in the comp, but hopefully we’ll hold our own.

“Their forward pack is massive. Chris Hill and Ben Westwood are current England internationals, Roy Asotasi’s played for New Zealand and Trent Waterhouse for Australia, but hopefully we can match them.”
