Forget Jarryd Hayne, Sydney Roosters coach Trent Robinson has more pressing concerns on his mind.
Robinson cast a despondent figure following his team’s humbling 26-6 NRL loss to Gold Coast on Monday.
The defeat leaves the Roosters second-last on the competition ladder, just one win clear of hapless Newcastle.
Robinson says he has no idea about reports linking former Parramatta flyer Hayne with his club following his shock retirement from the NFL.
And frankly, he is more worried about the players that are at the Roosters.
Worries over the Roosters poor start to the year were always tempered by the absence of key players such as Jared Waerea-Hargreaves and Mitchell Pearce – but despite both being back in the fold it seems little had changed at the Titans.
“There wasn’t that ‘I’ll do anything to win that play’ and that’s really disappointing,” Robinson said.
“Especially where we’re sitting and we did look flat with the ball, we didn’t have much and then when we did get some we should have created a bit more.
“It was pretty frustrating.”
Robinson says it is up to himself, his coaching staff and every player in his squad to turn the Roosters season around, starting with Sunday’s clash with Canterbury at ANZ Stadium.
“It’s as much down to me as it is the senior players, I’ve got to make sure I take the responsibility for that,” he said.
“We’re the only ones who can fix this … it feels like we had some positive feedback after our last game and were like ‘we’ll be right, we’ve got our leaders back’, it doesn’t work like that.
“That’s not how footy teams work.”
