Smith knows what it takes to take down the Dragons

Hull Kingston Rovers head coach Tony Smith knows his players have what it takes to taste victory in Perpignan.

He gave updates on injuries, travel and the conditions his side will have to face away in Perpignan.

“Everybody’s keen to get out there and put a bit better team performance across the board.

“This week we’re going to run our way over Hally and also Mitch Garbutt. We’re more concerned about making sure that we put out a good performance whoever we’ve got within the team rather than who we haven’t got.

“Any time you play rugby league over 26/27 degrees it’s difficult. So it’s a matter of rolling your sleeves up and getting on with it.

“It’s usually your attitude towards it (the weather) will determine how well you do and hopefully we’ll have a group of players there that have got the best attitude possible and that gives us our best chance.

“We’ll give them a healthy respect but at the same time, we know that they can be vulnerable at different stages.

“They’re a big pack and a big group of people and on their day they’re very dangerous so they’ll want a response from their last performance.”
