The last two weeks have been massive steps in the right direction for Hull KR.
Under interim boss Danny McGuire, the Robins have shaken off the disappointment of a controversial derby day defeat at the Magic Weekend to win the last two and jump into sixth place at the expense of their rivals.
The Robins edged Wakefield last week in a tight affair 15-10 and last night they battled back from 22-12 down to beat Warrington 30-22 at the Halliwell Jones.
That win coupled with another thumping defeat for Hull this times at the hands of Castleford in a 46-18 win for the Tigers saw Hull KR steal the play-off spot from the Black and Whites.
So, everything is looking rosy for the Robins and especially so this morning with the announcement that they’ve secured Dean Hadley for another season.
The back-rower has signed a one-year extension meaning he’s set to add to his 47 appearances as a Robin in which he’s scored four tries.
This is a boost for the player after so many injuries throughout his career including last week against former club Wakefield.
Like many others, his future is now secure and he can look ahead to working with new boss Willie Peters when he arrives.
On Peters, Hadley voiced his excitement at the opportunity to work with him saying on the Rovers’ website: It’s been a mixed year so far. With Willie coming in now it’s really exciting and the plan is just to carry on with everything we’ve been doing over the last couple of years. I’m really looking forward to him coming over and him implementing his style on things.”
