Rovers Appoint New Coach

Former Rovers coach Kevin Hobbs has rejoined the club as assistant to new headcoach Gary Price. Price approached Hobbs, a former player with Rovers, after a move to bring his ex-Wakefield Wildcats club-mate Lionel Harbin to the Lionheart Stadium failed.

Said Price: "When attempts to bring Lionel over fell through I thought about Kevin. He's had to have a good think about whether he wanted to come back but I'm really pleased he has. It's really positive news for the club."
