Harlequins RL 12-32 Hull KR


Rovers produced a fantastic 2nd half performance to record their first Super League victory in the capital.

The Quins started the brighter of the two sides, Danny Orr‘s pin point kick through being gathered by Matt Gardner to open the scores.

The Robins responded with a try from youngster Kris Welham who ran onto a brilliant pass from Paul Cooke.

It was all Hull KR from here on, with the Robins producing some of their best football of the year, especially in the 2nd period.
