Turner taking positives to Hull KR with Saints

St Helens utility player Jordan Turner is in optimistic mood ahead of his team’s trip to face Hull KR at the KC Lightstream Stadium on Friday evening.

Saints have not won at Hull KR since 2008, and have not won in the league there since 2007.

But Turner is not letting that poor record affect his preparations for the clash with a Rovers team who have just had their coach Chris Chester sacked.

“Records don’t mean anything, records are there to be changed,” said Turner.

Hull KR are a tough side, whether you play them at home or away.

“But that’s the furthest thought from our minds. I know other people go on about how we go up to Hull KR and don’t travel well – that doesn’t mean anything to us.

“It’s early days, we’ve only played three games. In these early rounds you expect the unexpected, and have to be on your guard and 100 percent in everything that you do.

“We know from previous years that Hull KR can attack really well.

“They’ve got some good players that can cause you a bit of damage, like Albert Kelly and a few others.

“We’ve got our ideas on what they’ll do.”

St Helens were heavily beaten by Sydney Roosters in their World Club Series clash with the Australian outfirt last Friday.

Turner wants to move on from the disappointment quickly.

“It was disappointing for the whole Super League really,” he said.

“But there’s no point dwelling on it. I think it needs a reaction.

“I don’t think everybody should be looking at the negatives.

“We should be looking at how we can move forward, the things we can put right in the game.”
