“Even when the personnel change, you can tell what they’re about because the identity is really strong.

“You align that with some of the talent they’ve got, then they’re a team that will be in and around these sorts of positions at the end of the year.

“They’re a really honest team and it’ll be a fixture where effort areas and energy will be tested throughout.

“I think they beat Salford after they beat us, and you could see it wasn’t a one-off.

“It’s brilliant for Super League, they’ve got vibrancy about them on and off the field.

“We’ve done a bit of reflection on the Leeds game, and then we started talking about Hull KR.

“We’re more of a review team than a preview team, we concentrate on where we can improve before we look at the opposition.

“We will be diligent at the right time but it’s important to acknowledge some of the stuff we did well against Leeds and some of the areas we need to improve.

“The round one defeat is obviously at the back of everyone’s mind and might get a mention pre-match, but with things like that you don’t have to remind the players.”
