Lakin left frustrated by Super League Disruption
Hull Kingston Rovers Chief Executive, Paul Lakin is frustrated with more disruption to the schedule following the postponement of the Robins’ trip to Salford on Thursday evening.
The club have faced seven postponements so far this year, the most of any club, yet remain focused on doing everything to fulfil the minimum number of 18 fixtures required to qualify for a play-off place.
“We are naturally very frustrated; this is our 7th consecutive postponed game and there is no doubt that the track and trace protocols are badly hurting the sport.
As we showed by flying out to France at short notice over the weekend, we are desperate to play but unfortunately, we aren’t able to rearrange a game for 48 hours’ time. Whilst neither Huddersfield or Leigh has a game this round, it wasn’t possible to bring forward our away fixture to play either of them for stadium operational reasons.
We now look forward to playing Catalans at home on Monday for our first game in front of our fans since the lockdown restrictions were fully lifted. With nine scheduled fixtures remaining, and we believe also an opportunity to play two rearranged games before the regular season concludes. We are excited and determined to give everything we’ve got, to what feels to us, to be the start of the second half of the season.”
