Poore: We must do the little things right

Hull KR prop forward Justin Poore admits that the Robins will need to get the little things right if they’re to have a chance of coming away from St Helens with a victory on Friday night (KO 8pm).

The Aussie will return to the side at Langtree Park after missing last Friday’s clash with Castleford due to suspension.

“They’re a good side who are very skilful and at the moment they are the benchmark team,” he said.

“It’s a big ask for us but I don’t see why we can’t go there and get a result. Saints are one of the bigger teams but we played Huddersfield the other week and they have a big pack as well – I don’t think there are many small forwards around nowadays.

“We need to complete our sets, kick long and do the little things right. We’re making some silly unforced errors at the moment and if we can fix those up and follow the game plan, we should be ok.”

After three rounds, Poore and his team-mates aren’t where they’d like to be but he says it’s still early days in what is a very competitive Super League.

“It’s a very even competition and anyone can beat anyone as we’ve already seen this year,” he continued.

“I think in most games, the team which wants it more will come out on top.

“We’re only in round four and we know that we’ve got a lot of work to do. There are a lot of new blokes in our team and it’s all about settling down and getting the camaraderie going. It’s also about going that extra yard for your mate and that’s what we’re working on.”
