Weyman: Sandercock is one of best coaches I’ve had

Hull KR prop Michael Weyman has credited coach Craig Sandercock for enabling him to score four tries in his last four Robins appearances.

The former State of Origin star scored twice against Warrington Wolves and picked up two more four-pointers against Hull FC and Widnes Vikings.

“I was just in the right places at the right times to score those tries,” Weyman told the Hull Daily Mail.

“I’ve never scored four in four before – I usually get two or three a season in the NRL, so this is all new to me.

“When we stick to our structures, everyone seems to be in the places they are supposed to be. It’s huge credit to Craig with the structures he has in place. When we stick to it, we seem to do well.

“Craig is one of the best coaches I’ve played for. If we can stick to his systems, we can go a long way.”

Looking ahead to this weekend’s match against Salford Red Devils, Weyman has urged his side to learn from mistakes made against Widnes on Sunday.

“Widnes made us pay by not making many errors,” he said.

“They are a side that hangs in there and make you pay. The biggest lesson we have to learn is to regroup and make sure we hang in there until the game is won.

“Salford is going to be tough if not harder than Widnes. It’s going to be another huge challenge for us and there are a few things we know we need to rectify and we’ll do that this week in training.

“At home, Salford are going to be tough to beat. They have some very handy and experienced forwards who have played at the highest level. For us middle players, it’s going to be a big challenge.

“They also have half-backs and backs that have played for their country. We need to move forward very quickly. To beat Salford takes a lot of things. We can’t worry too much about them and Rangi Chase, we need to worry about ourselves first. Our defence needs sorting out and then we’ll start to worry about their players.”
