Lunt keen for Cup glory with Robins

Hull KR hooker Shaun Lunt wants to make sure that his club’s season is not all about avoiding relegation, by helping the Robins to win the Challenge Cup.

Lunt, currently on loan at Hull KR from Huddersfield, has played in two Cup finals, one for the Giants, and one while he was on loan at Leeds.

His teams lost both games to Warrington, who are Rovers’ opponents this Saturday in the semi-final at Headingley.

“I’d absolutely love to win it,” said Lunt.

“I’ve lost twice against Warrington in both finals I’ve played. My team-mates would love to win it as well. Tyrone McCarthy was on the winning side in both of those finals for Warrington, so he knows what it takes to go all the way.

“Hopefully it’s third time round to win it this time. I’ve been fortunate enough to play in two Challenge Cup finals and I’ve won a Grand Final, too, but a Challenge Cup win would be fantastic.

“It’s a massive task. It’s always tough to beat them, regardless of whether it’s in a Challenge Cup semi-final or not.

“They’ve got a great front row with the likes of Daryl Clark, Ashton Sims and Chris Hill. We know it’s not going to be easy, but we’re capable of beating anyone on our day.”
