Chester bemoans Hull KR’s poor choice of options

Hull KR coach Chris Chester has expressed disappointment after his team’s 14-12 home defeat to Wakefield on Sunday.

Rovers outscored the Wildcats by three tries to two, but kicked no conversions.

But it was the attitude of his team which Chester felt had cost the Robins the game.

“We just didn’t come up with the right options,” he told his club’s official website.

“I thought we started the game sloppy, we conceded two really soft tries that Wakefield didn’t really have to work that hard for in all honesty.

“We worked hard to get back into it and we outscored them three tries to two, but obviously we couldn’t kick a goal.

“We’re having to do the goal-kicking without Josh (Mantellato) at the moment due to his injury but Kieran keeps practicing in training and working hard on it but today it wasn’t to be.

“It didn’t come down to goal-kicking today anyway – it came down to attitude.

“We were poor for that first 50 minutes and it took Bobby Blair getting sin-binned to bring us into the game. We’re disappointed with the way we played and I’m disappointed with myself and with the players.”
