It was a win that you may not have seen coming, but that does not mean that Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock is jumping up down with glee – with the Australian coach downplaying his side’s win over the in-form Warrington Wolves.
“We’re not getting carried away by this result. Warrington had quite a few players out and that stifled their attack,” said Sandercock.
“But I want to give full credit to my players. The boys played well today after getting an even share of the play and penalties and we did some little things well.”
Tony Smith, the Warrington coach, was left marginally disappointed, citing the fact that his side could not assert control of the game nor silence the home fans when required.
“We weren’t quiet sharp enough and didn’t start the game as we would have liked,” he said.
“We did well to fight back and go in at half-time with a lead.
“When you come to Hull KR, it’s a tough place to go to. It’s a hostile environment unless you take good control but we didn’t do that.
“But we’ll lick our wounds and dust ourselves off for next week.”
