Hull KR 'desperate for summer', says Craig Sandercock
HULL KR coach Craig Sandercock says he is 'desperate for summer to come' as he feels only then will his side be at their best.
The Robins have started the season with just three wins from their opening seven games, and currently sit in eighth spot.
Sunday's 34-12 defeat at Bradford saw Sandercock's men dominated by a powerful Bulls pack, as the home side relished a forward battle in heavy conditions.
Now, the Robins coach admits the current conditions are not suited to the squad he has built at MS3 Craven Park.

With that in mind, he is looking forward to a time when they can use their speed of play to their advantage.
"Obviously, the conditions at Bradford were difficult, and we are desperate to get on a dry track," Sandercock said.
"We are the sort of side who only has a small forward pack.
"Bradford are a great side with a massive forward pack and big outside backs and they are always coming at you.
"We are desperate for summer to come."
Rovers remain Super League's most potent attacking side, having scored 202 points in their opening seven games.
However, Sandercock says they are still seeking greater balance on the ball, with most plays coming down their left through captain Michael Dobson as Travis Burns continues to work on his role on the right.
"Obviously, there is no secret that Michael Dobson, Cory Paterson and Kris Welham are probably our three key players," he said.
"Travis needs a bit more time to settle in and find his exact role, but we will get there."
ROVERS are awaiting the results of a scan on a hamstring injury picked up by Dobson in Sunday's loss at Bradford which caused him to leave the field in the final 10 minutes.
