Official Report / Commentary

Hull KR claimed their first win of the 2018 Betfred Super League season with a 23-4 defeat of Catalans Dragons.

Promoted Rovers showed a marked improvement at Leeds Rhinos in round two and they got off the mark at the third attempt to ensure the Dragons remain winless.

Ryan Shaw's acrobatic finish gave Rovers an early lead and they were 16-0 up at half-time thanks to quickfire tries from replacements Mose Masoe and Shaun Lunt.

Debutant Danny Tickle was next to score a try off the bench and Chris Atkin completed the scoring with a drop goal after David Mead had given Catalans brief hope of a comeback.

Rovers head coach Tim Sheens said: "It was two teams in the same position and you can’t let things get too far away from you.

"There was an element of ugliness about the game at times but that’s what we needed to do. 

"We protected our lead and tried to control the football and we did that with 93 per cent completion in the second half, we handled it very well.

"Things will get better in the summer but right at the moment we just need to slug it out and kick well."

Catalans head coach Steve McNamara said: "I’m very disappointed. We went from last week looking like contenders to this week looking a million miles off it. 

"The first half probably couldn’t have gone any worse if we had tried to be honest. That was not acceptable and our errors in the first half were ridiculous. 

"This is not going to determine the season as to whether we’re in the top eight or the middle eight. 

"Every two points is vital and we weren’t good enough tonight and we didn’t deserve it."
