Hall ready to drop in on 
the Dragons

If Hull KR need another drop goal this afternoon in the south of France, it will be hard preventing Craig Hall getting his hands on the ball.

Hull KR's Craig Hall celebrates the winning drop goal against Hull FC.

He stepped up to dramatically fire over a decisive one-pointer in the thrilling 21-20 derby win against Hull FC last Thursday.

It came after co-captain Travis Burns missed one moments earlier and, ahead of today’s televised game against Catalan Dragons, Hall said: “I called for it. Travis only gets one chance. I said ‘no more’. He had a couple the week before that got blocked and then he hit one v Hull, too, that missed.

“But I’m three from three when it comes to drop goals.

“I got one for Widnes in a (Northern Rail Cup) semi-final and then hit one against Hull last Easter, too. I don’t miss!”

Improving Rovers are hoping for a fifth successive Super League win today.

“Catalan are starting to get a bit of form together now, but so are we,” said Hall.

“We played very well at Warrington and played very similarly on Thursday. The wins will stand us in good stead for Monday’s game.

“We’ve not been to France for Easter before. But we’ll all be together so can keep that team spirit going and take it into the game.

“It’s great everybody is together the full weekend. Hopefully, we play like we did Thursday and grind out a win.”

Coach Craig Sandercock makes just one change to his 19-man squad with Greg Eden coming in for the injured full-back Ben Cockayne.
