Heffernan enjoying consistent run

Hull KR’s Andrew Heffernan says he is enjoying holding down a consistent position in the team.

Heffernan has made the right centre berth his own this season and tops the Kingstone Press Championship table alongside Toulouse’s Kuni Minga with seven tries from his team’s first six matches.

Ahead of Sunday’s game against Halifax RLFC at KCOM Craven Park, Heffernan told the club’s matchday programme: “I’m going to try to make that position my home now moving forwards.”

“In the past I’ve had a bit too much of moving around, so it’s been good to focus on one position, learn my role and just do that job for the team.

“We’ve had quite a settled line-up down our side as well, with Ryan Shaw, Jamie Ellis and James Greenwood.

“That’s been good because you don’t want to move an edge about too much if you can help it. For me to be able to learn how they play, and them how I play, has been a real help, especially defensively.

“My attack hasn’t been too bad, but I feel I’ve got a few things to work on defensively. We can always get better, but I’m happy with the start we’ve made so far.”

  1. It’s a win-win ffor the player and club. He gets to restablish and rehabilitate himself after terrible luck with injuries, and the club get a quality back playing regularaly replacing players lost after the relegation.

    I hope he can do enough to attract attention from NRL or Super League clubs, hard work, dedication, and skill deserve that kind of reward.

    Good luck to the lad!
