"It was different type of challenge for us, which was quite difficult to prepare the group for, but the lads said what they wanted to get out of the game and came up with how they wanted to play.

"It was a consistent performance- we built the game in both halves and got our rewards.

"We scored some fantastic tries and played some entertaining rugby, but that was off the back of our efforts in defence and people running hard to earn the right to play.

"Some of the little pieces of plays were a great reflection of our skill.

"It was a professional approach against a spirited Hull KR team.

"They lacked cohesion and some experience but I thought their effort was admirable and we had to earn our points.

"I want to play credit to them. The young players, particularly in the first half, were very spirited, and the lads they’ve brought in on loan were committed to the cause- they deserve some credit tonight as well.

"The fact we’ve got a week off, we had to give the fixture the respect it deserves. Players want to play and build momentum.

“It was something we discussed at length, but I suppose every time you take someone out, you’re potentially putting pressure on more people.

"I felt the best approach was to start strong and if we could we’d get people off within the game.”
