Craig Sandercock: Bulls a tough test

Sky Bet

Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock has told his players to forget about last weekend's refereeing fiasco and concentrate on beating Bradford.

Rovers were denied a Magic Weekend win over city rivals Hull FC when video referee Steve Ganson wrongly awarded the Black and Whites a late try.

The controversy has rumbled on all week, with Ganson removed from video referee duties again on Monday evening, but Sandercock remains focused on the task of preparing his players to face the Bulls.


And the Australian is wary of a side which were humiliated 42-6 by high-flying Huddersfield at the Etihad last weekend.

"In the last few weeks we have shown signs of improvement. We are working hard and hopefully we will be competitive again on Sunday," said Sandercock.

"Sometimes it is not too good to play teams that have been badly beaten but we are at home and have a home crowd and hopefully we will do well.

"They are a good side, a big side. Their forward pack is huge and their outside backs are big boys too. We are under no illusions how tough it is going to be."
