KR Hit Rock Bottom After Derby Loss


It would be the men in Red and White that would make the brighter start to the game, Kieran Moss once more trying to prove he is Super League material to coach, Tim Sheens, after Vaivai attacked the line and found Moss on his outside, Shaw unable to convert from the left wing.

Scott Taylor would score the most bizarre try if not in Super League history, certainly Magic Weekend history, a Jake Connor kick would hit the crossbar and bounce back in-field before Taylor controlled with his chest and collected the ball cleanly to put down under the sticks, Connor adding the extras to give the Black and White's the lead for the first time in the game.

3 Minutes late Hull would extend their lead, Minichello punching a huge hole in the KR defense to set the platform, getting a very quick play the ball 2 metres from the line would give Jamie Shaul the easiest of tries as he went over, Connor kicking once more to give the Black and White's a 12-4 lead.

It would once more be the left wing combo of Vaivai and Moss that would put KR back within touching distance of their bitter rivals, KR going wide off a scrum and Vaivai creating the space for Moss to grab his second of the game, Shaw converting to make it 12-10.

Three minutes later would bring a special moment for debutant, Liam Harris, the young halfback attacking the line and getting rid of a defender before skipping past Adam Quinlan to score next to the posts to extend Hull's lead, Connor kicking the goal to make it 18-10 with 10 minutes of the half left.
Hull would close the half in style, Matongo with a huge carry, then offloading to Westerman who slipped the ball out of the back for Jamie Shaul, Shaul side stepping the covering fullback but getting ankle tapped, however, nobody was home to finish the tackle and Shaul would stretch out and put down for the Black and White's Connor once more accurate with the boot to send Hull into the half 24-10 up.

Somehow Hull would deny the Robins in the early stages of the second half, Shaw on his way into the corner but escorted from the pitch by; Shaul, Yeaman and Connor to prevent a certain try, dumping the KR winger into touch as he attempted to ground the ball.

FC's injury woes wouldn't get any better in the backs, Griffin pulling up after a challenge and forced to leave the field with assistance from the Hull medical staff.

KR would be reduced to 12 men temporarily, Nick Scruton sent for 10 for a shoulder charge on Danny Houghton after the ball had gone, no contact with the head and the yellow deemed sufficient.

Kieran Moss would get his hat-trick for the Red and White's, Rovers spreading the ball wide through Quinlan who then threw a fantastic cut out ball, Moss backing himself down the line as Shaul cut him off but Moss somehow grounding the ball, Shaw nailing the kick to make it 24-16 with 25 minutes to play.

Chris Atkin made a fantastic break from dummy half, splitting the Black and White's defence and stabbing a kick through for Kieron Moss, Moss collecting and offloading to Vaivai who failed to keep hold of the ball, the score remaining 24-16 with 18 minutes on the clock.

Jack Logan would find his way into the corner off the back of some enterprising play, a huge break from Hakim Miloudi supported by Jamie Shaul, Hull then moving the ball wide through Jake Connor who dummied two players on a drop ball before shipping it to Logan on the wing to dive into the corner, Hull now leading 28-16 with 12 minutes left to play.

Hull would confirm the win in the next set, trundling 70 metres downfield, a short pass at the line for Jake Connor who once more sold the dummy and backed himself through the gap, a big right foot step taking him past Quinlan to score under the posts, Connor adding his own extras to make it 34-16.

Tommy Lee would get one back for the Rovers, FC conceding multiple penalties, Scruton hitting the line hard but stopped just short, Lee getting the quick pick and go to find his way to the line, Shaw converting to make it 34-22 with 5 minutes to play.

The game ending in a slightly unsavory note, players coming in from everywhere after a coming together between Masi Matongo and Chris Anakin quickly followed between Miloudi, Hadley and Greenwood, all the incidents going on report. Ben Thaler with the closing sentiments of the game "the hooters gone, we don't need it, we're done". Final score 34-22.
