Toulouse Olympique 14-6 Hull Kingston Rovers


Toulouse Olympique beat Hull Kingston Rovers 14-6 at Stade Ernest Argeles to ruin the Robins’ 10-game winning streak in the league. Hull KR boss Tim Sheens rung the changes as he rested a number of experienced figures ahead of their date with Leigh Centurions in the Challenge Cup. Toulouse capitalised on this and the French side now look a good bet for an unbeaten home campaign in the Championship.

The hosts were 8-0 up at the break and the deadlock was broken after five minutes when Kuni Minga scored a try on his return to the team. The conversion was unsuccessful but consecutive penalty goals before the break saw Sylvain Houles’ men go into the sheds 8-0 up.

In the second period, Andrew Heffernan touched down to give the visiting fans hope of an 11th straight league win. Zach Dockar-Clay converted, leaving the Robins two points adrift with 15 minutes remaining. However, with five minutes left on the clock, Rhys Curran notched Toulouse’s second try of the game to seal the win. Mark Kheirallah’s conversion restored the two score lead and that was enough to see them over the line.
