Warrington prove too good for Hull KR

Harvey Livett crossed for two tries as Warrington maintained their perfect start to the season with a hard fought 28-14 win against Hull KR at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

It was the visitors who opened the scoring after just eight minutes as Ben Crooks went over for the Robins.

They held that lead until the 20th minute when Livett went crashed over for his first try, latching on to a short Declan Patton pass to edge the hosts ahead.

Tim Sheens’ side restored their lead on the half hour mark as Craig Hall crossed but Tom Lineham’s try on the half-time hooter put the Wolves 12-8 ahead at the break.

Livett got his second 13 minutes into the second half to give Warrington breathing space, Chris Atkin dropping Blake Austin’s high kick to gift the Wolves back-rower the four-pointer.

The killer blow came 15 minutes from time as Rovers pushed for a much-needed try, only for Josh Charnley to intercept and run 90 metres to put the game beyond doubt.

Jimmy Keinhorst crossed for a consolation try before Mike Cooper crashed over in the final minute, with Stefan Ratchford’s fourth conversion of the afternoon making the final score 28-14.
