Hull KR coach Tony Smith says any discussions over his own future can wait until the Robins know their fate (Hull KR 8/11, Wakefield Trinity 5/4, Tie 18/1 – Betfred Super League Match Betting).
Smith replaced Tim Sheens in June and has overseen an improvement but Hull KR remain involved in the battle against the drop.
The Robins sit 11th in the Betfred Super League table, two points clear of bottom club London Broncos.
Smith agreed a deal until the end of the season and hasn’t ruled out extending his stay, but the former Warrington coach says his full focus for now is on the survival fight rather than a new deal.
“It gets brought up from time to time but as I keep saying, I’m happy to focus on what’s at hand now,” he told Hull Live. “Let’s get into a different position in the ladder and then we can look at things in a whole different light.
“My focus and remit at the moment is to help this team to get into that position and build for the future. We’re still making decisions for the future regardless of where I sit in that. We’re making plans as best we can and recruiting as best we can for a really bright future at this club.
“I’m loving my time here and that’s down to the people. When you’re a coach if your players are responsive, enjoying themselves and getting better that’s why I coach.”
Hull KR take on Wakefield on Sunday and are 10/11 with Betfred to win with a -2.5 handicap.
