TOBY King scored what he described as one of the most memorable tries of his career at Magic Weekend on Saturday.

Now, he wants to help right-edge colleague Josh Charnley get himself back over the whitewash.

By his exceptional standards, the winger is in something of a barren spell in terms of tries – he has not scored in any of his past five matches.

The last time he scored was the Easter Monday victory over Hull KR – The Wire’s opponents in their Challenge Cup quarter final tonight.

After Charnley set King up for his long-distance effort at Anfield, he is now hoping to return the favour at KCOM Craven Park.

“Josh set me up for my try at the weekend. Hopefully I can get more ball from Blake (Austin) to put him away for a few as I think he’s due one,” the centre said.

“He came close against Hull FC but I think Jamie Shaul came up with a good try-saver.

“I’m not sure how many games it is now since he’s scored, but he was the league’s top try-scorer not too long ago. He needs getting back up there.

“I think he ran for 250 metres the other week mostly coming out of yardage. His contribution to the team is unreal.

“The try on Saturday is definitely up there with my favourites, without a doubt.

“Having a clear run to the line with all those fans cheering me on – it doesn’t get much better than that.

“You dream of those kinds of moments as a kid, running and playing in front of thousands of fans.”

The Challenge Cup has allowed King to play at Wembley Stadium twice already in his young career, although he suffered the agony of defeat on both occasions – against Catalans Dragons last year and Hull FC in 2016.

Victory tomorrow will put The Wire within one win of returning to the national stadium, but King is wary about what lies in store from the Robins – especially after beating them 54-6 on their home turf over Easter.

“It’s very different playing Challenge Cup – you’ve got to adapt to a bit of a new style,” he said.

“You can’t be too conservative but you also want to be looking after the ball as much as possible.

“That’s even more the case with Hull KR – if we give them a sniff, they will take advantage of it.

“They will be hurting from when we put a few points past them at their place over Easter.

“They are a different team to what they were then and Tim Sheens will throw all sorts of trick plays at you.”

With a solid record of six tries in 15 appearances this season, England Knights international King has established himself as the club’s first-choice centre alongside Bryson Goodwin.

However, that place may come under threat once England international rugby union centre Luther Burrell joins up with the club in July.

Even though Burrell may target his place in the side, King is looking forward to his arrival for one reason at least.

“He’s a Huddersfield lad like me – the Yorkshire lads are taking over,” he joked.

“It’s more competition for places when Luther comes in, but I thrive on that.

“I’ve been used to competing with Ryan Atkins and Bryson Goodwin and before him, people like Rhys Evans.

“Adding Luther to the mix is all good – I’m sure he’ll be a good player for us.”
