Lunt believes changes have not affected Hull KR

Hull KR hooker Shaun Lunt is happy with how the Robins have started life in Championship despite a big turnover of players.

Rovers eased to a 50-10 victory against the Eagles last weekend to extend their winning run to five matches.

“When you’ve had a big turnaround of players it takes a while to gel especially with the entire spine being new to each other,” he said.

“We’ve had a lot of players come and go but I think we’ve done really well and five wins from five you can’t complain with that.”

The Robins’ captain was pleased his side dealt with the poor weather conditions and came away with the win against Sheffield.

“The conditions weren’t too great and they’re a good side so it was a weird one going into it,” he added.

“Playing all these teams you don’t know much about them because they’ve not played against us so you’ve got to go in prepared for every single one.”

Two weeks ago Tim Sheen’s men nilled Oldham on to the way to an emphatic 48-0 victory which highlighted a big improvement in the Robins’ defence since the season has started, according to Lunt.

“We’ve not been where we wanted to be defensively so to come away and nil a team is always pleasing no matter who you play,” he told Love Rugby League.

“It was really good and our defence is getting better each week.”
