BBC Sport - Neil Hudgell: Hull KR to appoint 'top line coach' for 2017 season

'Top line coach' for Rovers - Hudgell

Chairman Neil Hudgell tells BBC Look North he expects the Hull KR coaching vacancy will be filled by a "top line" candidate in 2017.

Rovers parted company with former player and assistant Chris Chester after three games of the 2016 Super League season, a decision Hudgell admits was "difficult".

Among the names linked with the post are former England head coach Steve McNamara and ex-Leigh boss Paul Rowley, but Robins chief Hudgell would not be drawn on the names in the frame.
