"It looks like we got a flogging."




Hull KR claim their first win of Super League 2013 with a thumping 44-18 triumph over Widnes at Craven Park. Eight different Rovers find their way across the Vikings' try-line with Michael Dobson, Omari Caro, Dale Ferguson, Kris Welham, Graeme Horne, Greg Eden, Chris Heil and Craig Hall all managing four-pointers. Dobson adds another 12 points with the boot, while the Vikings can only reply through Gareth Hock, Rhys Hanbury and Alex Gerrard. Presumably Colleen Rooney, Cheryl Cole and Victoria Beckham think rugby league a little too rough for their tastes;

"It looks like we got a flogging." begins Widnes coach Denis Betts, understating things slightly;

"But I'm disappointed with the scoreline. Conceding 40 points is not good enough for this team any more. We reverted back to what we were doing at the start of last season and they got on a roll. The scoring system will do that to you and you're behind by 18 or 24 points in no time." he adds, as if somehow the scoring system has changed in the recent past.

Rovers boss Craig Sandercock obviously knew more about the scoring system, because he saw this coming all along;

"We were always confident in our ability." he boasts;

"If you look at the first two games in great detail, we had chances to win them both. It all goes back to possession. When you defend set after set like we did in the first two games it's awfully hard."

Yes. Especially with that scoring system.

With the whiff in the air of a possible appointment as France coach for the forthcoming Rugby League World Cup, Wakefield boss Richard Agar leads his team to a 28-0 demolition job on the London Broncos in the capital. Ben Cockayne adds another two tries to the hat-trick he scored against Rovers a week ago, while Danny Kirmond, Peter Fox and Richie Mathers also cross for the Wildcats. Paul Sykes lands four goals, as London fail to muster a single point in reply;

"We know we can attack and score from pretty much anywhere on the field, and it is our improvement defensively that pleases me most." reckons Agar, while Broncos coach Tony Rae tries to remain positive about his side's outlook;

"The answers are on the inside for us. If you keep expecting the negatives then that is what you are going to get." he warns, adding;

"We have to stay strong, stick together as a group and find the positives."

Twenty-four hours later and Agar's appointment as France coach is confirmed, albeit on a part-time basis as he stays on at Wakefield also;

"There are some gaps in the calendar and I'm over in France with Wakefield in a couple of weeks so I'll have half a day at some time to pick up on some meetings." he explains, as bookies report a record low number of bets on the Wildcats to win a Challenge Cup match in 2013;

"To be able to take part in a World Cup as a coach is something everybody has an aspiration to do." says Agar.
