Good to see Rovers practicing social distance and no contact in defence yesterday.

Whilst admittedly having not seen any footage I am not surprised with the new rules to see one or two blow outs this first two weeks. Warrington do IMO have ideal players for the six again rule i.e. Daryl Clark, Stefan Ratchford

True.
Add in the fact that we have basically nothing to play for whilst Warrington do, and they're a good side. The result is not in the slightest surprising.

I would have expected more from a team coached by Tony Smith if I'm honest.

Neil Hudgell to stand down as Hull KR chairman from 1st December, the club are looking for a new owner. Over to Luke for comments.

He's been saying for 7 years that he'll step aside if there was anyone who was willing to invest. Added with the pandemic, his other businesses and the council saying no to rovers buying the ground and land around it, it's hardly surprising.

Given what he's done in the last 16 years, how much he's invested in the club, and the fact that it's mainly down to him the fact I've still got a club I support. He's pretty much a modern legend (maybe abit far, but still). And I thank him for all of this, hope it goes well in the future. And hopefully Rovers continue to progress.

Excellent performance v Wigan. Minikin with the hat-trick but for me, Litten and Linnett stand out performances. Nice to see Minichella get a brace and Keyes/Ryan getting some game time.

They've Been going well, minichella especially.

Was a great performance, and a good idea surprising win. If only it meant something in terms of the league. Still a good performance.


Will be interesting to see what we do with regards of retaining/signings players. A lot we're on 1 year deals.

Oh and we've signed George King from Wakefield.

Jamie's Ellis will leave the club and join Leigh at the end of the season.

Given we still have Brieley,Lewis,Abdul,Milne and Keyes. Not surprising in the slightest.

Matt Parcell, Wil Dagger and Ben Crooks have all signed new contracts for next year. Good to be keeping some of our better players.

And on the other side.

Jamie Ellis & Matty Gee are both off to Leigh. And Weller Haurki has been told he won't be getting a new contract. Surprised about Weller who's been pretty decent in his time with Rovers.

Adam Quinlan has also signed for next year.

Ryan Brierley will be leaving the club at the end of the season.

Looks (to me at least) some good decisions being made, Parcell, Dagger and Crooks staying now joined by Quinlan. Ryan Brierley I don't think has quite found his best position which to me is full back. Tremendous athlete, not sure he quite has the SL skills for the halves.

I see you have Rowan Milnes back from Bradford. It will be interesting to see how he progresses, lacks a bit of pace off the mark, possibly end up at centre covering stand off.

Apparently that's what John Bastian has said as well, the thing with Brierley is he actually offered us something different in the halves, though agree mainly by backing up.

Mitch Garbutt has played his last game for the club.
He requires surgery, and has already signed for Toulouse for next year.

Perhaps now not at SL level but I think he has been excellent for you. If fit I am sure he will go well in the Championship, like Adam Cuthbertson (Leeds to York).

This year is all about building for next year as there is no relegation this year, but i think a lot more rebuilding is required by Tony Smith

Rovers have announced that they won't be able to play there remaining fixtures (3 left), after a number of players and some staff have tested positive for covid.

As expected, 10 players have so far been told they can leave.

Weller Hauraki, Mitch Garbutt, Ryan Brierley, Nathaniel Peteru, Matty Gee, Daniel Murray, Kyle Trout, Jamie Ellis, Harvey Lovett (loan ended), Adam Rooks.

Most have already found a new club, but disappointed in a couple leaving (especially Peteru and Murray), but which all of them the best moving forward.

I must admit I would have liked to see Dan Murray back at Bradford, good luck to him at Halifax.

I see you have Albert Vete from Melbourne Storm, looks like an ideal signing to beef up an undersized pack.

Yes, have to see how he goes. But on paper a good signing, and one which we need.
Rumours flying around, one of which is Ryan Hall, who we don't need.

And after saying that, we have signed Ryan Hall to a similar 2 year deal as Bete.

Also released next year's home kit, predominantly red, with a bit of white on the shoulders, and a white chevron with a couple of red lines in it. Not sure about it.

If fit I think Hall will go well for you, not just try scoring but how he returns kicks and start sets.

Albert Vete and Korbin Sims similarly look good, rumours that Luis Johnson is heading your way from Warrington. Too early I know but in time the investment of John Bastian I think will see academy players coming through.
