Chester delighted with Robins’ defence

Hull KR coach Chris Chester was very pleased with the defensive effort his team made in their derby victory over Hull FC on Thursday evening.

The Robins won the game 20-6, and did not concede any points at all in the second half.

“I thought our defensive performance in the second half was something to write home about,” Chester told his club’s official website.

“They through plenty at us but we found a way to combat it. They threw the ball around but we kept coming up with good decisions defensively and we kept turning up for each other.

“We defended our line very well for the full 80 minutes and their only try came on the back of an error from us. I’m not going to have a go at Kieran for that though, he was trying to get back into the field of play and it was just one of those things.

“We’ve still got a lot to fix up though. We weren’t as fluent with the ball as we’d like to be. We probably created enough opportunities to win two or three games and couldn’t find the final pass, but we’re delighted with the win, especially for the fans.

“They really deserved that for their support over the last couple of weeks and we wanted them to enjoy it.”
