Robins name May Team of the Month
Hull KR are proud to present May’s team of the month, including a number of the club’s teams from across the grade.
The team is based on the recommendation of the club’s coaches, highlighting standout players from their respective teams. The commitment comes as the Robins look to highlight and reward its current and prospective stars from across the club.
Fullback – Declan Moss-Falconer – Scholarship
Moss-Falconer has impressed the scholarship coaching staff with his professional approach as he returns from injury. Declan will hope to rejoin the side once the scholars return to action on 18th June against London Broncos.
Wing – Alfie Walker – Scholarship
The second Scholarship player to feature in May’s team of the month, Walker has excelled not only on the field but in training. Committed to developing his skills, the winger has not shied away from improving himself in skill sessions and small-sided games at training.
Centre – Louix Gorman – Academy / Reserves
Able to play on the wing and at centre, Louix’s hard work in May was rewarded with a Reserves call-up last Friday. Gorman played well against Newcastle and bagged a try in the win.
Centre – Madison Kendall – Women’s First Team
In a big moment for Women’s rugby in Hull, Kendall scored the winning try in golden point extra time to secure the Robins’ place in the League Cup semi-final. Kendall continues to grow into the centre spot, scoring a well-executed try from a kick in the win over Stanningley.
Wing – Seb Cooper – LDSL
Seb made some great attacking contributions at the LDSL festival at Hull FC. Cooper has a hand in the majority of tries scored for KR and his effective running game continues to cause a threat to any opposition.
Stand-Off – Kieran Smith – Academy
Having signed for the Academy at the end of last year, Smith has had a fantastic month of development. Academy coaches have been impressed with his attitude and effort toward making improvements to his game.
Halfback – Abbie Kudla – Women’s First Team
Kudla continues to defy her young age and guide the Women’s team around the field. The young halfback was instrumental in the Robins’ two wins earlier this month, scoring two tries and kicking 3 goals. Kudla continued to try and bring the team back into the game against Salford at every opportunity.
Prop – Lois Brown – Women’s First Team
Brown continues to turn out dominating performances in the front row. The former Premier 15s player has scored 3 tries in the last 3 games, including 2 against Hull FC in the Robins’ League Cup quarter-final win.
Hooker – Jez Litten – Men’s First Team
Throughout May, Litten continued to be an injection of pace to the Robins, trying to spark the side’s misfiring attack into life. The hooker has had to guide KR at times as the sole hooker in games against Castleford and Catalans and stood up to the task in difficult circumstances.
Prop – Ian Lyon – LDSL
Ian has really impressed this month for the Robins’ LDSL side through his effort in training and is certainly getting his rewards out on the pitch after scoring a fantastic try in the latest round of festivals.
Second Row – Dean Hadley – Men’s First Team
Hadley is integral to the Robins’ engine room and his work putting in the hard yards and big tackles hasn’t gone unnoticed. The Hull-born back-rower has been key to KR’s flashes of brilliance in May. Both Hadley and the team will look to build on this heading into June.
Second Row – Owen Maull – Academy / Reserves
Maull continues to go from strength to strength for the junior Robins following a strong showing in the side’s loss to Warrington U18s last weekend. The back-rower made the step up to KR’s Reserves last week and helped the side to edge-out Newcastle Thunder’s Reserves on Tyneside.
Loose Forward – Jess Sharp – Women’s First Team
The 16-year-old’s second feature in two months, Sharp has an unbelievable work rate for a young back-rower less than 10 games into senior Women’s rugby. Sharp topped the ball carrying charts in each game this month and also contributed with 2 tries and a conversion. While the Women’s last game ended in defeat to Salford, Sharp worked tirelessly in defeat whilst attempting to inspire her teammates.Back To Latest News +
