St Helens Head Coach Kristian Woolf has talked highly of Hull KR ahead of their Super League clash on Thursday.
The Robins came from 28-4 down in the second half to force Golden Point against Catalans Dragons last week, only to lose in Golden Point.
Woolf is familiar with a few of their players like Shaun Kenny-Dowall, who he worked with at Newcastle, and Albert Vete, who he worked with at Tonga.
The Saints boss says his side will have to be on their game to pick up the points.
He said: “They did something similar to us last year, not quite at the same margin. We were in front in the game, and they found a way back and forced Golden Point. They have the quality to test you in different ways.
“There are number of players there I am familiar with. Not just from last year but from the NRL as well.
“Ryan Hall gives them some real strike on the left edge, Shaun Kenny-Dowall, Ive coached with Newcastle, he is a strike player inside him. Albert Vete I have coached with Tonga. Kane Linnett is another I am familiar with. Korbin Sims spent a long time playing with Newcastle, Brisbane and St George, I am very familiar with him.
“They will always be dangerous team. They also have players like Jordan Abdull, who is a good player, both nines are dangerous and Mikey Lewis is also dangerous.
“You need to be on your game to beat them. They will compete, and compete until the end as well.”
