Lachlan Coote on Hull KR and how his opinion of the club changed from his time at St Helens

Being a part of the Hull KR club at present is an exciting opportunity.

In front of over 10,000 fans in the Hull derby, in front of over 10,000 fans against Warrington Wolves, Rovers excelled, sending their huge support home happy.

Rovers now own their stadium at Craven Park, their academy and scholarship systems are flourishing and head coach Tony Smith has built his own dynasty in East Yorkshire, earning a place in the Challenge Cup semi-final this year after reaching the Super League semi-final play-offs in 2021.

With Smith linked with signing a new deal at the Robins, the future is very rosy indeed and one man who is excited at the prospect is star signing Lachlan Coote.

The Australian fullback made the move from St Helens after winning three Grand Finals and a Challenge Cup, and, after Hull KR’ success against bitter rivals FC at the weekend, Coote expressed on Sky Sports just how happy he currently is.

“The club is awesome and the club love their footy and it’s so good to be a part of it,” Coote said.

“It’s everything to us players; the boys told me about the fans and they lived up to expectations – the crowd got us through,” Coote said.”

Coote also revealed how the image of the club has changed.

“They are so full of passion – everyone was talking about how bad it was as a club but it’s flipped on its head.

“They’ve got great facilities, they’ve got everything here and that’s what we love. I love it here.”
