Poching heralds start of ‘big month’ for Hull KR

Hull KR have an important few weeks ahead of them, according to assistant coach Willie Poching.

Rovers have a run of four home games, beginning with the visit of Castleford to the KC Lightstream Stadium on Friday evening.

“It’s the start of a very big month, not only in respect of having a run of home fixtures, but also in context of the season and where we’d like to finish,” Poching told the Robins’ official website.

“We’ve been good at home this year and hopefully that will continue over the next four weeks. Hopefully we’ll start to get some players back to fitness and put out a team that reflects something close to the people who we thought would be in our starting 13.

“We can’t worry about teams around us on the table, above us or below us, we’ve got to focus on ourselves each week and that makes this Castleford game the most important of the season.

“It’s obvious that we are pretty light at the moment down the middle and any coach worth his salt will look to that area as a game plan against us.

“We’ve got to muscle up, we’re expecting it, but preparing for it is one thing and executing it is another. If Castleford try to take us on down the middle, we’ll do our best to combat that and do our best to go against it.

“We did a pretty good job on the main against Leeds when they did it to us and when Wigan did it to us in the cup, we handled that very well. We’ve got to roll our sleeves up and do it again.”
