Campese wants Hull KR to focus on Wakefield rather than Chester

Terry Campese has insisted that Hull KR will be fully focused on the game with Wakefield rather than focus on coming up against former head coach Chris Chester for the first time.

The Robins travel to Wakefield tonight in the hope of gaining a victory in front of the Sky cameras, but Campese says the team are fully focused on getting the two points than considering the fact they are facing their old coach.

“A lot has been made in the media about us facing Chezz for the first time but I don’t think ther’ll be much emotion for either side. That’s rugby league really,” Campese told the club’s official website.

“You play against old teammates all the time or face coaches who used to be at your club, it’s just part of the sport. You learn to live with it and it’s just going to be another game for us. We’re focused on getting the two points and a much-need win.

“Wakefield are throwing the ball around and they’re a dangerous team. You can’t take your eye off them for a second because they can really hurt you.

“We’ve just got to turn up with a defensive attitude, be ready to dig deep and work hard for each other. We need to be consistent for 80 minutes because we were good in the second half against Catalans but over run in the first 20.

“If we can complete our sets and keep hold of the ball we’ll give ourselves a chance going into the back end of the game.”
