Sandercock set to scan PNG World Cup squad

Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock is looking forward to taking in some World Cup games this autumn, and hopes that one or two new stars might be unearthed.

Several Rovers players are set to play in the tournament. Adam Walker will be linking up with Scotland, and new signing Neville Costigan should play for Papua New Guinea.

“I’m looking forward to watching it,” Sandercock told Love Rugby League.

“And to having a look to see how all the boys go. I know a lot of the players who’ll be there, having coached them.

“It’ll be good to catch up with them, and to get a feel from the outside looking in, for once.”

Papua New Guinea are inked in for two fixtures at MS3 Craven Park. Rovers enjoy strong links with the country, and have a certain member of their staff who will be paying close attention to some of the talent on show.

“Well, we’ve got Stanley Gene on staff,” Sandercock added.

“So I dare say he’ll be having a good look at them for me.

“You never know what he can unearth. You never know, there might be one or two waiting to burst onto the scene.”
