Hull KR prop Mick Weyman is striving to keep his emotions in check, ahead of Friday’s clash with Leeds.
The tough Australian forward was disappointed to see Craig Sandercock dismissed from his position as Robins coach last week, but knows that he must put his personal feelings aside.
“Personally, I was very disappointed,” said Weyman, according to the Hull Daily Mail.
“Craig was very influential in getting me to the club and stuff like that and to have him go like that was disappointing.
“But I’m here to play footy and I had a job to do and just had to get on with it.
“You have to put your emotions aside and just go from there.
“It doesn’t get any easier for us. It’s going to be tough, with it being at Leeds, so it’s going to be hard, but we’ve enjoyed Sunday’s win and are now looking forward to that.”
Meanwhile, new coach Chris Chester, in charge of Rovers until the end of the season, is looking to make the most of his opportunity.
He steered his side to an impressive 40-1o home win over St Helens on Sunday, and now wants to build on that ahead of a tough-looking trip to Leeds.
“We have eight games left and I want to make the most of this opportunity,” he said.
“I’m making sure I do everything to be as prepared as I can and the boys too and get results. I think I’m an honest coach and that’s what players want.”
