Official Report / Commentary

Craig Hall scored his 100th Betfred Super League try as Hull Kingston Rovers defeated Salford Red Devils 22-20.

It was Rovers' second victory over Salford in 16 days after beating Ian Watson's side 32-18 in the Challenge Cup earlier this month.

On the second day of the Magic Weekend at Anfield, Rovers opened up a 14-0 lead by the half-hour mark as first Kane Linnett and then Hall touched down to bring up his 100th score, with Ryan Shaw landing two conversions and a penalty in between the two scores.

Salford hauled themselves back into the game three minutes before the interval as Joey Lussick crossed, with Krisnan Inu converting.

Hall made it two tries for the game and 101 for his career five minutes after the break, with Shaw converting again to make it 20-6.

Salford, though, drew level with tries from Pauli Pauli and a brace from Ken Sio, yet while Inu converted the first of those, he struck the upright with the second and missed the third.

Four minutes from time Shaw slotted what proved to be the match-winning penalty after a high tackle on Josh Drinkwater.

Hull KR head coach Tim Sheens said: "Certainly relief, we had a good lead and gave up a try to 12 men (when Pauli Pauli was sin-binned).

“We came out in the second half, they were throwing it around, quick passes. Fortunately, they missed a couple of goals and we kicked the ones that counted."

Salford boss Ian Watson said: "We’re a fool to ourselves. The way we started the game, the way we bombed opportunities, we’re making it difficult for ourselves."
