‘We’ve got to get better’: Roosters coach Trent Robinson addresses NRL player behaviour

NRL coach Trent Robinson has joined Alan Jones in the studios, just over a week after the Sydney Roosters won the Grand Final.

The 42-year-old has now won three premierships in his seven years in charge at the Bondi club, marking himself as one of the most successful coaches in Rugby League.

Robinson chatted about a whole range of things in a candid interview, including the controversial Grand Final victory over the Canberra Raiders.

When asked about the Roosters trainer blocking a potential Canberra try, Robinson laughed it off as “perfect timing”.

“Hasn’t there been a lot of talk. I’m not sure how we planned that.”

The coach also discussed this morning’s news of Melbourne Storm player Nelson Asofa-Solomona being filmed fighting in Bali.

He says player discipline is never easy to manage but believes the sport is getting better at it.

“We had a bad off-season last year as Rugby League.

“Letting your hair down and doing the right thing, we’ve got to get better at doing those two things.

“It’s hard, it’s not always easy. They’re young men that deserve a rest. We’re becoming better and better as a sport.”
