Official Report / Commentary

Hull KR climbed off the foot of the Betfred Super League table following a hard-fought 18-10 win over arch rivals Hull FC at KCOM Craven Park.

The Robins moved up to 10th and left 2017 Grand Final winners Leeds Rhinos stranded at the bottom as Tony Smith tasted victory in his first derby in charge.

Neither side could be separated at the break after Bureta Faraimo and Ben Crooks traded early tries in a physical first half. 

Handling errors from both teams meant the scores remained 6-6 until Joel Tomkins nudged the hosts ahead for the first time 10 minutes after the restart.

Andre Savelio cut the deficit to two points with 15 minutes remaining to set up a nervy finale, but Leeds loanee Matt Parcell rounded off a much-needed Rovers victory with a debut try.

Hull KR coach Smith said: “I’m pleased for the players. They are working hard and they got their rewards. It could have easily gone either way.

“I’m really proud of the rugby league my players played today. We are not that far off. I’m really encouraged by our play and some of the attack and in the defence.

“We consider that our best rugby league is still to come, and we are working hard on that and in a few weeks’ time we could be in a lot better position."

Hull FC coach Lee Radford said: “It was a deserved result I felt. We highlighted earlier in the week how important this fixture was to them and how good we had to be.

“In derby games, you have to outfight and outscrap the opposition and ride momentum. I thought we got outfought and outscrapped by the way we played in the first half."
