Smith weighs in on Sims decision

Hull Kingston Rovers Head Coach Tony Smith had his say after the Rugby Football League took no further action against Korbin Sims.

Sims was dismissed from the field by referee Liam Moore after a challenge on Wakefield’s Max Jowitt.

But Sims will return to action as the decision was ruled incorrect by the match review panel.

Today Smith responded: “People make the wrong decisions at times. I thought it was a harsh call. I do not make comments very often about those sort of things.

“You have to be wary. Sometimes when you do make a comment, you are made out to be a whinger.

“I had a look and thought it was a harsh call as I said last week. That was not the reason why we lost.

“Whether we get some harsh calls or not, our job is to overcome those and the week before, we did overcome some adversity.

“We just have to be tough, smart and together enough to overcome those adversities.

“There were harsh calls in the Wakefield game and I will stick by that but referees and other people, such as coaches and players, make mistakes too.”

The Robins return to their beloved KCOM Craven Park for the first time in five weeks and will finally welcome back their home supporters.

It will be the first time fans have had the chance to watch the Robins in 441 days when they take on winless Leigh Centurions on Sunday.

Looking forward to their return, Smith said, “It is fantastic to be at home. It was nice to have a crowd a couple of weeks ago but our own crowd are important to us.

“We have spent a long time away from the stadium and then we came back and it being empty again but now with people being there it is going to be a very special day for us.

“We are excited and we are hoping to repay for all their support they have given us throughout these difficult times.

“It has been difficult for supporters to support and we are delighted to have them back.”
