As knwon,  Super League has been suspended due to coronavirus pandemic and it has given clubs the opportunity to check the areas they struggle.

Hull KR only stayed up on points difference in 2019 and it was obvious why they struggled throughout the campaign.

Rovers missed the most tackles and made the fewest tackle busts, which underlined huge issues in defence and attack.

The same problems have continued this year as well despite big changes, albeit over a smaller sample size and in an uneven competition in terms of games played.

The squad again find themselves 11th in the table and are top for missed tackles with 279, 16 ahead of Salford Red Devils with Toronto Wolfpack some way back in third.

Rovers  are ninth for tackle busts with 180 having played more games than each of the teams below them, although Huddersfield Giants have been left behind on 113.

The Robins rank sixth for completed tackles – behind Salford, Wigan Warriors, Hull FC, Warrington Wolves and Castleford Tigers – and seventh for carries and metres.
