Reports link Lunt with Hull KR

Hull Kingston Rovers chairman Neil Hudgell has warned fans to prepare for big changes at the club for next season.

The Robins have endured a pretty average campaign, which has seen coach Craig Sandercock lose his job, and the team fail to make a convincing play-off push.

With hooker Josh Hodgson also on the way to the Canberra Raiders, Hudgell has promised that supporters will see an intensive recruitment process over the winter.

Indeed, the Hull Daily Mail reports that Huddersfield hooker Shaun Lunt is being lined up as a possible replacement for Hodgson.

“Fans can expect to see big changes for next year,” Hudgell told the Hull Daily Mail.

“Frankly, we have not been good enough this year.

“Some of it is down to poor recruitment, some of it is down to attitude.

“Josh is a great kid, a model professional and I will be very sorry to lose him.

“We need more players like Josh, who always give 110 per cent.

“I hope and expect fans will give him a rousing send-off.

“He will leave some big shoes to fill and we expect to spend most of the fee we received to replace him.”

Current caretaker coach Chris Chester has also been involved in the club’s recruitment process, handing a list of potential targets to chief executive Mike Smith.

It is understood that Kieran Dixon of the London Broncos is another target for the Robins.
