Revenge is very much part of Costigan plan

Have your say

NEVILLE Costigan admits revenge is in mind for Hull KR 

They head to Warrington Wolves in Super League, just five days after losing 28-24 to the same opponents in the Challenge Cup at Craven Park.

Costigan, the robust Papua New Guinea second-row in his first season after joining from Newcastle Knights, said: “We had our chances but just couldn’t complete our sets. The boys have trained hard since and we know what to do; we’ve not changed much in the gameplan.

“We’re looking forward to getting back out there and getting some revenge.

“It’s good for us playing them again so quick but we have to cut out the silly mistakes.”

He is relishing the chance to go up against Trent Waterhouse once more, the experienced former Australia second-row who was a regular opponent in the NRL.

Costigan, 29, admitted: “That’s always fun.

“I love playing big boys like that as it tends to bring the best out of you.

“Super League is actually physically a bit tougher than the NRL – there’s some bigger boys over here – and I didn’t think it’d be this tough but I am enjoying it, especially after we have managed to get a couple of wins.

“There’s a bit of sun coming out too. It’s gone up by about five degrees in temperature!”

The East Yorkshire club have won their last two Super League games against Bradford Bulls and Wakefield Trinity Wildcats after enduring a difficult start where they failed to pick up a victory in their opening five fixtures of the campaign.

Coach Craig Sandercock has utility back Craig Hall available again, too, after he underwent surgery on a testicle injury, Greg Eden the player who has dropped out of the previous 19-man squad.
