Willie Poching remains unsure of long-term future at Hull KR

Hull Kingston Rovers interim coach Willie Poching has revealed that he’s still not sure what his future holds regarding the head coaching vacancy at the club – but says he’s focussed on producing a result for the Robins this Friday.

Still without a win in 2016, KR head to table-topping Widnes on Friday looking to record their first victory of the new campaign in Poching’s second game in charge, following the loss to St Helens last week.

Rovers chairman Neil Hudgell revealed this week that he has a “top-line” candidate in mind to take over – and Poching admits he’s unsure what lies ahead for him when asked if he had been given any indications by the board.

“Not as yet,” he said. “I’m just turning up every day doing my best for the team.

“We’ll get Friday out of the way and then deal with it.

“I want to throw my name into the hat – and any other job – if possible but at the moment I’ve got a job to do here.

“If it doesn’t pan out that way, I will still do the best job I can for this group.”

Poching will be without star half-back Albert Kelly for Friday’s trip to the Select Security Stadium, with youngster Matty Marsh drafted in and expected to take his place.
