Poching pleased with Robins’ win over confident Salford

Hull KR assistant coach Willie Poching was very pleased with the way his side coped with the threat posed by Salford at the KC Lightstream Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Rovers managed to clinch the game with a late Albert Kelly try, having allowed Salford to level matters up at 28-28 with a handful of minutes remaining.

“We knew Salford would be pretty confident about the side they put out,” Poching told his club’s official website.

“They’ve not had the chance to put that side out too often this year with the injuries they’ve had and people missing out.

“It was a strong side they put out tonight and they were dangerous. Rangi Chase created some chances and Michael Dobson’s kicking game troubled us, particularly in that first half.

Kieran Dixon was the unfortunate victim of some of those kicks but it’s not just Kieran’s fault, as a team when one fails we all fail and there were some reasons how we let him down a bit.

“It was a great win for the boys and we’re in the situation where they’re all important wins. We’re into the eight now and out destiny is in our own hands, which is the situation we wanted to be in because we don’t want to be dependent on other teams’ results.

“We’ve had four good wins at home now and we’ve got some confidence and some momentum behind us but we’ve got some points to play for and we need to keep it up.”
