Robins' future excites Smith
Head coach Tony Smith says he is looking to build "something special" after agreeing a three-year deal at Hull KR.
The former Warrington boss was initially brought in on an interim basis following the departure of Tim Sheens but now Smith will be staying on for the next three years.
The 52-year-old was delighted to get the deal over the line and is now looking forward to what they future could bring for the Robins.
"I've quickly bought into what this club and the people in and around it are about," he told the club website. "I get the supporters' passion. There's great potential and I'm committed to building something special."
Smith's side took a big step towards ensuring their Super League survival on Saturday as they secured a 24-6 victory in Perpignan against the Catalans Dragons.
The Australian coach was pleased with the victory and was full of praise for how his side battled for the vital two points.
"They did it for the badge, and we had a massive travelling support," he told BBC Radio Humberside. "It felt like that massive support was all over them putting people into the right places, and I think it helped some of them get there because they didn't want to let anybody down."
