Michael Dobson: Picked up 24 points in the win over the Giants
Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock was full of praise for Michael Dobson after the scrum-half had orchestrated a 44-26 win over Huddersfield at the Galpharm Stadium.
The Aussie scored two tries, helped to create four others and kicked eight goals for a personal haul of 24 points as the Robins maintained their top-four challenge.
Sandercock said: "I thought Michael Dobson was outstanding, he's doing everything well.
"He should be playing in the NRL, he's that good a player, and I'm lucky to have him.
"I think he's the form half-back in the competition. The last month he's taken his game to another level. To me, he's in career-best form."
Hull KR captain Ben Galea shook off a chest infection to play and Sandercock added: "He wasn't feeling the best before the game, so for him to come out and produce a game like that is a credit to him."
Huddersfield had led early on before 26 unanswered points saw them fall 32-12 behind.
And coach Nathan Brown said: "At 12-6, we looked like a decent team. We were going well and were definitely on top at that stage.
"We're like the person who wants to get rich quick. We think we've got to score every time, we don't build any momentum or pressure.
"It's quite obvious our right edge is struggling defensively and they're very strong down that side with Dobson, Galea and Kris Welham. We've lost a bit of resolve in our defence, which we obviously need to pick up."
