Hull Kingston Rovers have ruled out Australia and Wests Tigers assistant boss Peter Gentle as their new coach.

Current coach Justin Morgan will leave the club after six years in charge but chairman Neil Hudgell says his replacement will not be Gentle.

"I'll make an exception as I said I wouldn't comment on any specific name," Hudgell told BBC Radio Humberside.

"But I can categorically say that Peter Gentle won't be the next coach of Hull Kingston Rovers."
