Poching wants to impress in head coach role

Hull KR head coach Willie Poching is hoping to use the rest of the 2016 season to put himself in a position for head coaching roles in the future. 

The 42 year-old has been given the role on a temporary basis following the depature of Chris Chester from Hull Kingston Rovers last month.

Poching has made no secret that he is wanting the job on a full-time basis, therefore the question was asked if he had received any assurances on his future at the club.

“Not as yet. I’m just turning up every day doing my best for the team,” Poching told The Yorkshire Post. 

“We’ll get Friday out of the way and then deal with it. I want to throw my name into the hat – and any other job – if possible but at the moment I’ve got a job to do here.”

“If it doesn’t pan out that way, I will still do the best job I can for this group.”

The job for Willie Poching has not been made any easier given the amount of injuries to the Rovers squad, and Poching has revealed Albert Kelly may miss this weekend’s game with Widnes Vikings.

“Kelly hasn’t recovered quite sufficiently enough and whether he’s right for next week (Huddersfield) I’m not sure,” he said.

“But we’ve got a nine-day turnaround for that so hopefully we’ll get as many people back then as possible.”
