Wolves prove too strong for Hull KR in tough encounter

0

WARRINGTON Wolves moved up to third in the league table as they eventually overcame Hull KR 20-34 in a hard fought encounter.

The result consigned Hull KR to The Qualifiers with a defeat in their penultimate Super League match as Mike Cooper, Stefan Ratchford, Tyrone Roberts, Toby King, Kevin Brown and Declan Patton all crossed for the Wire.

Roversled briefly through Elliot Wallis’ first-half double before Robbie Mulhern and Chris Atkin went over too.

Hull KR still had faint hopes of earning a Super 8s spot before kick-off, but needed to beat Warrington.

Rovers were on a much-needed three-game winning run prior to facing the Wire.

After strong spells from Warrington either side of half-time Rovers had hope of pulling off a fine comeback when Atkin’s scored under the posts and Danny Tickle converted to reduce the deficit to two points at 20-22.

But the Wolves finished the stronger to claim victory and move up to third.
