Report

Hull Kingston Rovers defeated Dewsbury Rams with a rather unusual score of 64-11. The Robins scored the first try of the game before the Rams kicked a drop goal in the 13th minute courtesy of Lewis Fairhurst. Unfortunately for the visitors, their masterplan of staying in the game didn’t quite come to fruition as the table-toppers proved too strong for the West Yorkshire club. Ryan Shaw, Andrew Heffernan and Liam Salter all combined for seven tries as Tim Sheens’ men sailed to another win.

Shaw opened the scoring for KR after seven minutes with Jamie Ellis kicking the goal. However, the highlight of the game was only a few minutes away as Fairhurst kicked a drop goal to get the Rams on the board. Tries from Heffernan and Shaw extended the hosts’ advantage and things kept getting better for the full-timers who notched another four tries before the break to go into half-time 36-1 up. Heffernan and Shaw completed their brace and hat-trick respectively, either side of four pointers from Ellis and Salter.

Dewsbury started the second half in fine fashion as wingers Dale Morton and Gareth Potts both got on the scoresheet to put their side into double figures. However, that was the end of the scoring for the Rams as Hull KR finished proceedings with five more tries to their name. Ben Cockayne touched down before Jordan Abdull and Danny Addy got themselves on the scoresheet. Salter bagged his second try of proceedings in the latter stages of the tie as KR moved beyond the 60 point mark.
