Official Report / Commentary

Salford Red Devils produced a superb second-half performance to help overturn a 14-point deficit and continue their strong start of the Super League season at Hull KR.

The hosts raced into a 22-8 lead at the break thanks to tries form Weller Hauraki, Craig Hall, George Lawler and Jimmy Keinhorst, with the Red Devils briefly leading 8-6 after 26 minutes through Rob Lui and Josh Jones scores.

However, Ian Watson's side added 16 unanswered points in the second period as Derrell Olpherts, Ken Sio and Joey Lussick crossed the whitewash as Sio's second conversion with nine minutes left proving to be the match-winner in the 24-22 victory.

Salford returned to winning ways after last week's 46-14 hammering at home to Leeds Rhinos to secure their third success from four matches, while the Robins have opened their season with two triumphs and two defeats.

Salford coach Ian Watson said: "To turn the tide the way we did shows real good character in the team. I just felt at half-time, if we cut the errors out, we'd win the game."

Hull KR coach Tim Sheens said: "We're all very disappointed. The problem was that we stopped playing. We led the possessions, penalty count, could have led by more and came back out for the second half looking to just do enough to stop Salford from scoring.
