Ryan O'Hara says he has never been happier than at Hull KR
HULL KR prop Ryan O’Hara admits he has never been happier in Super League than he is right now.
And being at the Robins is a world away from life at the Crusaders last season, allowing him to focus fully on playing the sport he loves.
The Crusaders ran into financial trouble last season, eventually withdrawing from their position in the competition and leaving players seeking new starts.
O’Hara found his in east Hull, and with his new side now in a rich vein of form, he is delighted with how the situation turned out.

“After all the dramas and problems that went on at Crusaders, it’s been completely different here,” O’Hara told the Mail.
“It’s like comparing apples and oranges. Since I have been here, it’s been great.
“We had a rough start but things are rosy now.
“As long as we keep training with intensity and enjoying each others’ company, then we’ll be able to get out of any difficult situations.”
With five games under his belt, O’Hara is happy his own contribution to Rovers’ revival, and is keen to maintain the standard he has set.
“I’m happy with my own form as it was tough being out for so long and missing a lot of defensive work at training,” he said.
“I’m still a bit rusty in some areas, which I’m working on, but Sandy seems to be happy with the progress I’ve been making.
“That list of things to work on never ends and I would have liked to have played every week instead of having the free weekends we have had.
“But for the team’s sake it’s good to have a rest as they have been playing big minutes every week.”
O’Hara has missed the two previous meetings with Catalan this season, but he has used the time on the sidelines wisely to study potential weaknesses in the Dragons’ side.
With both that and coach Craig Sandercock’s game-plan, O’Hara says he goes into battle equipped with all the information he needs.
“I can’t give too much away, but Sandy has been over the video with us and we have worked out a few things they do,” he said.
“Names like Lopini Paea, Scott Dureau, Clint Greenshields and Leon Pryce have all been mentioned.
“We have talked about their strengths and how we can shut them down.”
