McCarthy will impart Wembley experience on KR squad

Hull KR captain Tyrone McCarthy has revealed that he’ll be hoping to use his essential Wembley experience to guide the squad to victory against Leeds Rhinos this Saturday.

McCarthy is a Wembley winner – and has even scored in a Challenge Cup Final success with Warrington – so knows the ins and outs of preparing for such a big game.

And he revealed that he sees a similar buzz and feeling about the group than the Warrington one which won at Wembley on their first visit there in years – and he’s hoping for a repeat on Saturday.

“Obviously some lads won’t have a clue what’s going to be happening this week, so I’ll give them a heads up,” he said.

“When I got there with Warrington the first time, it was similar in that it was about 20 or 30 years since they’d won the cup or been to Wembley.

“There was a real excitement in the camp and I’ve got the same feeling this week. Hopefully, we can follow suit and get the win.”
