Robbie Mulhern and Danny McGuire were over the moon with Hull Kingston Rovers’ emphatic victory over Huddersfield Giants.
KR were 20-6 ahead at half time and put in a dominating second half display, scoring three unanswered tries and they ended up 38-6 winners.
Mulhern made an 80-metre break for James Greenwood’s try in the second half and was a standout forward in the game.
Speaking after the game, he said: “The try got us a good bit of breathing space.
“It was really good of Woody (Greenwood) to be backing up and it was a really good performance and I’m really happy with the two points.
“I think the win shows how close we are as a group. We’ve got a lot of noise coming from the outside but hopefully that will get a few critics off our back. We were never worried, we just need to keep this up and build for Saints next week.”
Tim Sheens’ Rovers won their second game out of a possible six at the John Smith’s Stadium on Thursday night.
And McGuire thinks the big win will help the team kick on now.
He said: “We haven’t been a million miles off in the early part of the year, we have worked hard for each other but we were just on the wrong side of a couple of results.
“The work ethic was really good from the lads and we’re really pleased to beat a good Huddersfield team.
“I’m loving it here. It’s different but they are a really good set of lads and it’s a great club. It was a really good backing as well by the fans who have come across on a wet Thursday night so I’m loving it at the minute.
“It’s a new challenge and we will improve on the back of the win as well.”
