Petersen wants to see out season with Workington Town

Hull KR’s Super League prospect Dave Petersen wants to see out the season at Derwent Park and help Workington Town win promotion after renewing his dual registration with the Championship One outfit.
The 20-year-old was happy to re-commit to Town after completing his impressive, initial three-month stint at the club and believes it will help him achieve his eventual aim of a regular top-flight place with Rovers.
“It took a few weeks for the team to click but you can see now what we can do, and it’s looking good,” Petersen said.
“The fans have been great with me and the club has really looked after me. I’m enjoying it, and if I wasn’t I wouldn’t have been looking to commit.
“It’s got a really good feel to it. The big thing now is if we can get promoted. I would love to be part of that.”
Petersen made his Super League debut against Salford this term, after turning out for Town, and he credits his experience at Workington with helping him earn his call-up for Rovers.
And he is now eager for more chances to impress in the top-flight this year.
“It was the debut I wanted, and the feedback was all positive,” the back-rower added. “I just need to get in there a bit more and show what I can do. The chance will come, and I have to work hard and keep playing at Workington and doing my job. I would like to be a regular first-teamer next year, that’s my goal.”
He revealed that Championship One was a step up from the Under-20s Super League competition.
“It’s a lot more physical than the Under-20s,” he said. “Obviously, the dual registration has been helpful.”
Ex-Town centre Aaron Low is unlikely to line up for Barrow against Workington on Sunday after damaging his shoulder against South Wales last weekend.
Player/coach Darren Holt said: “We will get him assessed. I spoke to him briefly after the game and it was an AC injury on the shoulder, which usually aren’t very good.
“I don’t want to be all doom and gloom until I speak with the physio department and see what the extent of the damage is.
“The best-case scenario is that it is just a bang and he is okay this weekend, but experience tells me that is not going to be the case. He has injured his AC, there is a bit of movement in it and it is popping in and out, so it could end up being a couple of months.”
