Addy open to playing in halves after hat-trick against Bulls

Danny Addy has told the Hull Kingston Rovers website that he doesn’t mind whether he plays in the halves or the back-row ahead of the Qualifiers.

Addy played in the halves rather than his normal back-row position in Hull KR’s game against Bradford Bulls and the Scotland international helped the Robins to victory with a hat-trick of tries.

With the middle eights coming up and a competitive squad at his disposal, Tim Sheens will have been happy to see Addy on form while putting his utility value to good use.

“We’ve got a squad of really talented players across the board and everybody wants to play,” Addy said.

“I’m no different, I just want to be helping the side as best I can and I don’t care whether that’s in the halves or in the back row.

“It’s about hitting some form and peaking at the right time. We’re not getting carried away with finishing top, that was just a small box ticked for us. We’ve got a lot of improvement left in us.”

Addy also commented about this weekend’s round 22 clash against top four chasers Toulouse Olympique.

The French club have hit a bad run of form recently and their recent loss to Halifax has seen them move out of the top four.

However, Addy and his teammates know that underestimating Sylvain Houles’ men could prove to be a big mistake.

“We’ve got Toulouse now this weekend and we’ve got to keep backing it (the good performances) up,” he said.

“They’re wanting to get into that top four and we want to get better each game, so it’s a big match for both teams.

“We know they’re going to turn up and we’ve got to make sure we do as well, which I’m confident we will.”
