Hull KR postpone training camp

Hull KR players celebrate at Warrington

Hull KR have announced their pre-season training camp in Tenerife has been postponed until the end of 2022.

The discovery of the new Omicron variant of Covid-19 has increased uncertainty around the country, with certain rules changing.

From Tuesday, any person entering in the UK will need to take a PCR or Lateral Flow test two days before they travel, even if you are fully vaccinated. They also must be paid for, as you cannot get them through the NHS.

As such, the Robins have decided to wait until later in the year to go over.

A statement on the club website says: “The decision comes with recent changes and continued uncertainty to Covid-19 travel regulations creating logistical issues for the Robins’ 10-day trip to the Canary Island.

“Deferring the trip also ensures the club does not run the risk of players having to quarantine over Christmas and subsequently hinder their families during the festive period.”

Hull KR pre-season schedule

The Robins will return to action in the New Year. Firstly, they will travel to Championship side Dewsbury on 23rd January for Michael Knowles’ testimonial.

They will then face Super League opposition in the form of Huddersfield. Two weeks later, the Super League season gets underway.

In Round One, Hull KR will welcome Wigan on 11th February, before travelling to Huddersfield for their first away match in the Super League.

The Robins will be hoping they can build on their impressive 2021 campaign. They travelled to the south of France to take on Catalans 80 minutes away from a maiden Grand Final appearance. However, they suffered a 28-10 defeat.
