Tommy is getting to grips with union after switching from league

This time last year Tommy Lee was an integral part of Hull Kingston Rovers’ squad at the start of their Super League season.
He had helped the Robins start the campaign with a derby win in which Rovers sealed the win with a try six seconds from time.
Lee left Rovers later in the season and after recharging his batteries he is back playing rugby.
Not league, but union. Lee joined Hull RUFC earlier this season to help them finish as high up the National Two North table as possible on their return to the division. 
Lee admits he is learning all the time after what he found to be a tricky transformation from the 13-man code to union.
“I found the transition from league to union okay,” Lee said.
“At first I just didn’t think and played a free role.
“But as the season has gone on, it’s a lot more complicated and disciplined which I need to learn, especially with referees.
“I am really enjoying the game and I just wish I could do more at times.
“But sometimes conditions dictate the nature of the game.

“I know I’m not where I want to be physically and my game awareness needs to improve, but with hard work, I will get there.
The squad are a great bunch of lads and coaching staff  and they are all helping me.

“I have no doubt that we can only improve and push up the ladder.
“It’s a great club and I thank then for welcoming me.”
