Hull KR 22-34 Hull FC

Hull claimed their seventh straight derby win by beating Hull KR 34-22 in the final game of this year's Magic Weekend.

Scott Taylor, Jamie Shaul (2), Liam Harris, Jack Logan and Jake Connor scored the tries for Hull with Connor adding five goals as the Black and White climbed to fourth in the Super League table.

Kieren Moss scored a hat-trick for Rovers with Tommy Lee adding a late consolation try as the Robins finished the weekend bottom of the table.

Despite conceding the game's first try to Moss, Lee Radford's side rallied to lead 24-10 at half-time.

Rovers reduced the deficit to eight points, but Hull were always in control of the game to send their army of fans home happy.

Hull coach Lee Radford praised his side for not letting the adversity of an ever-growing injury list disrupt their game against their bitter rivals.

"It was an ugly win but where we're at in terms of who's missing and changes to our spine, we'll take any win," Radford said.

"I've just been told we're level on points with Warrington now and unbelievably we've got the third best attack in the comp, which is crazy when you think about it.

"I'll continue to take ugly wins from now until we get some blokes back." 

Rovers coach Tim Sheens believes his side are still capable of avoiding the Qualifiers despite sitting bottom of the Super League table.

"There's not much between us and Salford - two wins," said Sheens.

"So there's that little ray of hope that we live by. My main worry at the moment is getting some of our better players back on the park."
