Hull KR claimed their second win of the Super League season after a 26-6 victory over Leeds Rhinos at Craven Park.

The Robins took the lead after 10 minutes through former Rhino Ryan Hall, after getting on the end of a Jordan Abdull kick to score his 200th Super League try. Abdull missed the conversion, meaning their lead stayed at four points.

Eight minutes later, another former Rhino came back to haunt his former club. This time it was Matt Parcell, who went out of dummy half to score. Abdull converted to open up a 10-point lead.

Just past the first quarter, the Robins got their third try as Kane Linnett got on the end of an Abdull kick to get over. Abdull scored the conversion.

Four minutes later, Leeds hit back after Brad Dwyer got over from dummy half. Ash Handley scored the conversion to reduce the deficit to 10 points.

Hull KR got the crucial first try of the second half as Linnett took in a short pass from Parcell to get over. Abdull was off target with the conversion.

Things got worse for Leeds soon after. Richie Myler put Dwyer through, but referee Marcus Griffiths called the pass forward. Myler was then sent to the sin bin for his protests.

With 10 minutes to go, the Robins rounded off a good evenings work with their fifth try after Linnett barged over to claim his hat-trick. Abdull scored the conversion to take his personal total to six points.

Both sides return to Super League action next week. Hull KR travel to Warrington Wolves next Saturday, while Leeds travel to Huddersfield Giants on Sunday.
