Set of Six with Omari Caro: Qualifying for World Cup with Jamaica a career highlight

Omari Caro, Hull KR (2013)

Jamaica international Omari Caro is our latest guest on My Set of Six.

We’re asking you, the fans, plus players, coaches and other rugby league personalities to give us their answers to our set of six questions.

Favourite away ground?

Stade Gilbert Brutus, the Catalans home ground. I’ve played there on numerous occasions for club and country and the weather has always been great and the fans are always noisy.

Favourite player?

I didn’t watch rugby league when I was growing up but one player that I did know was Leon Pryce. I had the pleasure of playing with him at Bradford.

Best match you’ve seen?

Australia v New Zealand in the Four Nations at Twickenham Stoop in 2009.  Cameron Smith scored a last-minute try to draw the game.

Favourite memory?

Beating the USA in Florida to qualify for the 2021 World Cup with Jamaica. The game was good, the night out was better and the flight home the next morning was horrific!

Worst memory?

Dislocating my shoulder in the Hull derby at the KCOM stadium and having to play on. The pain once the adrenaline wore off was unbearable.

Your wish for the future of rugby league?

To be a top global sport. It’s obvious we have a great product but for some reason it’s not quite as successful as it should be.
