Official Report / Commentary

Warrington Wolves' homeward bound Australian half-back Tyrone Roberts scored a try and kicked five goals in his team’s 34-20 win at KCOM Craven Park to condemn Hull KR to a relegation battle.

Huddersfield Giants' stunning success at Castleford Tigers plus Warrington’s rollercoaster victory lifted Steve Price’s side above the Tigers into third place behind St Helens and Wigan Warriors.

Battling Rovers led 14-12 early in the second half after Elliot Wallis' brace and Robbie Mulhern's try cancelled out efforts from Mike Cooper and Stefan Ratchford. 

But Warrington made the game safe with four tries in the last half-hour through Roberts, Toby King, Kevin Brown and Declan Patton.

Chris Atkin had got Hull KR back to 22-20 but they were unable to stay with the Wolves in the final quarter as their bottom-four place was confirmed.

Price said: “We had enough firepower to come over the top of them in the second half.

“It was a credit to the playing group after Hull KR scored that quick try at the start of the second half.

“We got back to a more Warrington-like style of football and scored a number of tries in quick succession which I know we are capable of doing. But we still have to build and sustain pressure for longer periods.”

Rovers head coach Tim Sheens said: “We didn’t give in but Warrington’s kicking game was too classy and really put us under pressure.

“I was happy with certain things in the game but our penalty count and possession count still worries me.

“If you don’t complete high, even against Championship sides, that will kill you."
