Robinson makes gi­ant state­ment

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport - Rugby League

Luke Robinson hopes to land the job on a per­ma­nent ba­sis af­ter mas­ter­mind­ing a 29-6 vic­tory over Wake­field in his first match as Hud­der­s­field care­taker coach.

Robinson, 36, took charge fol­low­ing the de­par­ture of head coach Si­mon Wool­ford 24 hours be­fore­hand, and could hardly have made a bet­ter start as they ended their five­match los­ing run in style, Ai­dan Sezer scor­ing one of the five tries and land­ing four con­ver­sions.

The for­mer Wi­gan, Sal­ford and Hud­der­s­field scrum-half joined the Gi­ants back-room staff af­ter in­jury ended his ca­reer in 2016 but has been coach­ing his lo­cal am­a­teur club Sid­dal for the past 15 years.

“Every­one has as­pi­ra­tions to be a head coach and I’m just like ev­ery­body else,” Robinson said.
