Hull KR’s Kane Linnett has gone off within 15 minutes of the first-half.
The important Rovers man tore his bicep less than a fortnight ago yet still made Tony Smith’s team for today’s Challenge Cup semi-final.
However, he has been substituted, presumably because of that issue.
Now in his fourth season with the Red and Whites, the ‘Big Red Machine’ is a firm fans’ favourite and recently signed a new deal with the clu
“I’ve really enjoyed my time here and my family have enjoyed their time here too. It’s really good to be a part of a club that’s moving in the right direction.
And to be a part of that next year, hopefully with me signing on for another year, a few of the other boys who are off-contract will follow.”
Linnett is confident the strong foundations already at Hull KR will stand the club’s new coach in good stead for 2023:
“I had the option in my contract and I’d love to finish here at this club. With what Tony’s built here and the team we’ve got hopefully there are not too many changes. I think the new coach is coming into a club in a good position and we can keep the good times going.
“I said last year that I’ve still got a few years left in me. I’ll be 34 (years old) next year but personally, I know I’ve still got some good footy left in me. I’m looking forward to another year with the club.”
