Official Report / Commentary

Hull KR ran in 38 unanswered second-half points as they thrashed Castleford Tigers 58-16 to record just their third First Utility Super League win of the season.

Maurice Blair set the tone in the opening minute when he dived over after a 70-metre burst from Ken Sio.

Luke Gale played in Jake Webster to cross for the Tigers and Ryan Hampshire dived over after a sustained spell of Castleford pressure.

But that was as good as it got for the hosts, with Graeme Horne putting Thomas Minns through for Rovers on 20 minutes before Albert Kelly added a brace.

Castleford responded as Junior Moors broke and Jy Hitchcox crossed to leave the Robins 20-16 ahead at half-time.

But Iain Thornley, Sio and Minns scored second-half braces - the latter to complete his hat-trick - and Mitch Allgood also went over as the visitors ran riot, with a potentially serious injury to Chris Clarkson the only dampener on their afternoon.

Hull KR coach James Webster, who saw his side crash out of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup to Oldham last week, said: "It's been a tough week mentally and physically.

"A lot of things were said and we spoke during the week, that it's easy to say stuff to make you feel better but it is another thing going out doing it against a good team away from home.

"We knew the proof would be in the pudding but we were good enough for long enough to get the job done. I am proud of the players.

"But while it was fantastic what we turned out today, it's frustrating we can't do it every week. That's our challenge now."

Tigers boss Daryl Powell pulled no punches about his team's dismal display, saying: "This ranks with the Warrington performance this season.

"I thought Hull were excellent right from the start. They beat us in every department but it was clearly unacceptable in our approach and things have to change quickly.

"We spoke about our home form but that was embarrassing. It was just ridiculous. It's not what we stand for and there is a lot of work to be done before next week's home game with St Helens.

"The more we went after it, the worst we got."
