Chester pays tribute to Rovers pack

Hull KR coach Chris Chester believes that his team’s home win over Warrington on Friday night was in large part down to the efforts of the Robins forward pack.

Rovers won 36-10, with a dominant second-half display, with Keiran Dixon, Albert Kelly and Maurice Blair to the fore.

But it was the forwards who particularly pleased Chester.

“It was one of our best performances of the season and we spoke before the game about how we’d need to defend our own line very well and we did that,” he said, according to his club’s official website.

“We did that and I thought physically we were very good tonight.

“We really fronted up to a very good Warrington side and credit to the pack, they really laid the platform.

“They got up in their faces and really put them under pressure.”

The Rovers coach feels that his team are finding some form at just the right time of the season.

“We’re peaking at the right time,” he added.

“Winning becomes a habit and we could see tonight that there is a lot of confidence in this group of players and they are starting to believe in themselves a bit more.

“There were a lot of guys in the dressing room who were very happy and so they should be.

“There were plenty of smiles on faces and it certainly makes a change with the luck we’ve had over the last four or five weeks.”
