Chester impressed with Hull KR’s courage in defeat

Hull KR coach Chris Chester was pleased with his team’s efforts on Sunday at Warrington, even though they lost a close game 32-24.

A Ben Currie try five minutes from time sealed the win for the Wolves, but Chester felt that his team played well.

“I thought we probably deserved a bit more from the effort we put into the game but take nothing away from Warrington, they’re a class side,” the coach told his club’s official website.

“We dropped off some tackles and it cost us in the end but I’m really pleased with large parts of our performance.

“We were in the contest right to the final hooter and we dominated for long spells.

“At the other end, we had to defend a number of sets on our line at times and I thought we did that pretty well, particularly in the first half, but it’s probably caught up with us in the final five or 10 minutes.

“There was plenty of effort and plenty of courage out there and while we are disappointed with the result, there are a lot of positives to take.

“Not many teams bounce back when Warrington score two or three quick tries but we kept finding a way to get back into the game so I can’t fault the effort and commitment.”
