Agar took over temporary charge almost two months ago after Dave Furner was sacked.

“We are purely focusing on the task at hand at this moment in time.

“I would not anticipate or want any talks about anything until we get this job done.”

Hull KR’s win over Hull on Thursday left Rhinos two points adrift at the bottom of Betfred Super League ahead of Sunday’s home clash with Catalans Dragons.

Rhinos have won two of Agar’s six games in charge.
