Marsh ready to take KR opportunity

Hull KR’s Matty Marsh is embracing every minute of his first-team stint at the Robins, and is keen on using past experiences to make his mark on Super League.

During Rovers’ halfback crisis in 2015, Marsh was drafted in to fill the void left by Albert Kelly and Terry Campese.

Although he impressed during his stint in the team, Marsh has flourished this year, starting in both games that KR have won this season and earning plaudits in the process.

Among his admirers are head coach James Webster and the great Paul Cooke, which speaks volumes for the youngster.

Following Terry Campese’s latest injury that is likely to keep him out for eight weeks, Marsh is now set to establish himself in the first-team, and he is hoping to make every minute count.

“It’s really unfortunate what’s happened to Terry and Albey. They’re our leaders on the field and we’re waiting for them to return,” Marsh told the Hull Daily Mail.

“But personally, I’m over the moon with the minutes I’m getting. At the start of the season, I was hoping for the same as last year, about five or six games, but I’ve already reached that goal.

“I maybe thought I’d be going out on loan for some game-time but that’s not been the case, thankfully.

“It’s just unreal to be given the opportunity to play with such quality players.”
