Hull Kingston Rovers 50-16 Batley Bulldogs


Ryan Shaw and Liam Salter helped themselves to braces as Hull Kingston Rovers registered their eighth consecutive league victory. Batley Bulldogs were the latest to fall against the Robins and a slow start cost the visitors dear as Tim Sheens’ side scored three tries inside the opening quarter. Shaw, Kieren Moss and Andrew Heffernan were the try-scorers before James Brown responded for the Bulldogs. The final try of the half went the way of KR centre Thomas Minns, who has enjoyed a great opening couple of months in the second tier.

At 24-6 up, Hull KR couldn’t afford to let Batley back into the game and they made sure the win was sealed with four tries on the spin. Shaw and Salter completed their doubles while Chris Clarkson also got on the scoresheet. Wayne Reittie and Dane Manning gave the visiting Bulldogs fans something to cheer about with a try apiece before James Donaldson crossed for the final four pointer of proceedings on 77 minutes.
