KR youngster relishing Murrell’s presence at Halifax

Hull KR youngster Conor Robinson is relishing the chance to finally get some decent game time at Halifax.

The Rovers hooker was the first Robin to be picked by Halifax coach Richard Marshall, under the terms of the ‘partnership’ agreement between the two clubs, and he played in the win over Hunslet last week.

Having spent time at Coventry as well this season, Robinson is looking forward to playing alongside another man with strong Rovers links, in the shape of Fax stand-off Scott Murrell.

“I had a month at Coventry, which was interesting and hard work; it’s a 280-mile round trip so I was getting home at 1.30am after training,” Robinson told the Halifax Courier.

“That’s not the same level; I didn’t really have to worry about anyone else but myself at Hunslet, because I knew if I got my game right, everyone around me would be doing what they needed to do.

“With Scotty (Murrell) and Ben Johnston organising, they sort their edges out and I just do my job in the middle.

“I thought I’d have been a bit rusty, but when you’ve got players outside you like those two it makes it a lot easier.”
