Sims Settled In Well To Hull KR

Korbin Sims is loving life on a different kind of East Coast than he’s used to, after settling into life at Hull College Craven Park.

The Fijian International came over to the club in time to celebrate the New Year and help make the transition from Australia to England as easy as possible.

It was recently announced that Sims will don the number 10 shirt for his debut season with the Robins and despite the difficulties the sport faces in light of the current pandemic, he can’t wait to get stuck into his first year in the Betfred Super League.

“It’s been really good so far. Getting used to training in the cold is a lot different than what I am used to in Australia. But I’m quite enjoying getting around the boys and they have welcomed me in like one of their own, which is always helpful being the new guy to the club,” said Sims.

“I’ve been really enjoying everyone’s knowledge of the game and of the club. TS (Tony Smith) and I speak a fair bit each day when I’m at training and the calibre of coaches that we have around the place are great. I’m really looking forward to seeing what we can put together over the next couple of month’s leading to the first game.

“I love it around here, it’s really cool, I’m staying in Hull City centre at the moment. I’m really enjoying my time there but obviously, with lockdown, it’s not the best time for the UK at the moment, but being around here and going to training, we are lucky enough to do that.

“There are so many people around the country that are doing it much worse than we are. I’m counting my blessings being able to come over here and actually train and be around the team.

“The first week I was here I didn’t have a car so I was probably covering about six to eight miles a day on foot, to and from different shops, but it’s been good because I’ve actually been able to walk around and get a bit of an idea of the place.

“The pitch looks amazing, the groundkeeper is doing a fantastic job. It’s not easy to grow crop or anything in the cold climate. He’s barred us from the field completely so we are training at the back which is a good idea because when we get on the park we know how special it’ll be.”
