“We’re coming back strong in 2023” – Important Hull KR pre-season update

A new era at Hull KR is set to begin as new boss Willie Peters takes charge.

Peters has worked his charges hard in pre-season and done plenty of unique things like allowing position based sessions where first team players work with younger players in the same position creating a wholistic club.

On this, he said to the club website:

“It’s been great. We’ve spoken a lot about being a club through Scholarship, Academy, First Team, and our Women’s side. We went through our positional trademarks which the players came up with.

‘Off the back of that, we’ll review those after each game, each training session and the players now know what’s expected from each position – because they’ve come up with it.

‘These sessions are awesome – I coached the Rabbitohs under 16s and under 18s sides early on in my career and you get a lot out of coaching the youth and seeing their development and watching them become first team players.

‘I think these joint sessions are great for the younger players as it shows they’re not too far away. They’ve been able to mix and train with the first team players, and while the step-up can feel far away, it’s not that far if they work hard enough.”

He also confirmed that his side would be enjoying a Christmas break:

“‘The boys have worked extremely hard. We’ve had a good seven weeks. We started earlier and got the guys back in for that but we’ll give them a nice break over Christmas to spend some time with family.

‘They’ll need to do a bit over the break over the Christmas break, because they’ve worked extremely hard, we don’t want them to lose too much of the sharpness they’ve already built up.

‘It’s important how they come back, but they definitely deserve a good Christmas break before coming back for the season. We’re looking forward to enjoying this break and coming back strong in 2023.’
