Official Report / Commentary

Craig Hall scored two tries and kicked a penalty on his return for Hull KR as Tim Sheens’ visitors ended a run of seven straight derby defeats with a 20-16 win over Hull FC.

Hall, Kingstone Press League 1’s player of the year with Toronto Wolfpack last season, could not have wished for a better comeback after joining on loan from Leigh Centurions.

Hull, thumped 72-10 at Wakefield Trinity six days earlier, fought back from 16-0 down to tie the scores at 16-16 before Danny Tickle landed two final-quarter penalties.

Hall's first-half double and Tickle's try on the stroke of half-time left Rovers in full control, only for Hull to hit back through Jordan Abdull, Josh Griffin and Mark Minichiello.

But the Robins held their nerve to claim a morable-boosting victory ahead of their scrap for survival in the Super 8s Qualifiers and deal another blow to their rivals' fading top-four hopes.

Hull KR boss Tim Sheens said: "There hasn’t been too many boys here that long but they understood the importance of the game.

 “We had lost twice this year to them, particularly the one at home. So, it was a big effort considering the last-minute changes to the team and bringing in new faces as we did.”

Hull FC boss Lee Radford said: ”I thought we fixed some things up at half-time but clearly not enough.

“Our effort, impact and contact was through the roof. Territorially we were really strong but, ultimately, when you are completing at 55 per cent you are never going to win."
