Official Report / Commentary

Harvey Livett claimed two tries on his return to the Warrington side to help the Wolves to a hard-earned 28-14 Betfred Super League victory over Hull KR at the Halliwell Jones stadium.

The Wolves never reached the heights of their opening-weekend victory over Leeds but managed to grind out the win to make it two victories from two.

Livett started in the second row with Ben Westwood and Toby King both suspended and Lami Tasi was given his Wolves Super League debut on the bench.



Rovers stuck with the same 17 players that won the derby against Hull FC.

Livett’s double was added to by Tom Lineham’s 100th Super League try, a spectacular length-of-the-field interception from Josh Charnley and a Mike Cooper score in the final minute. Stefan Ratchford kicked four goals.

In reply Hull KR claimed tries through Ben Crooks, Jimmy Keinhorst and Craig Hall and one conversion by Josh Drinkwater.

Warrington coach Steve Price said: "I’m pleased with two competition points but it’s not a performance we’re happy with. I thought we made it too comfortable for them throughout the game and we expect better of ourselves. But it’s good to knock out a win and still score 28 points in round two against a team that is going to cause others a lot of problems this season. It’s only early but we have a week off next week and will regroup and get ready for Huddersfield.”

Hull KR head coach Tim Sheens said: "We made a game of it and tries just at the end of half-time and full time changed the nature of the scoreboard. We created opportunities and just didn’t finish them and you can’t do that against a side of Warrington’s ability. I’m very happy with the effort, the execution needs to be worked on but against a squad rated to be grand finalists this year then we can hold our head up and know we can get better.”
