Ryan Hall hailed by Hull KR coach Tony Smith after reaching impressive milestone

Ryan Hall scored his 200th Super League try tonight

Hull KR coach Tony Smith was full of praise for Ryan Hall who reached a remarkable milestone in their 26-6 win over Leeds.

England international Hall took his Super League tally to 200 to help the Robins beat his former club Leeds 26-6 at Craven Park.

Smith said: “I know Hally’s not one for records but that was a huge achievement. I thought Ryan Hall was terrific tonight. He was big and powerful and fast.

“I think I was around when he scored his first, I’m not sure I will be around when he scores his last.”

Smith vowed his players would not take their foot off the gas after securing their first back to back wins since 2018.

Smith added: “We won’t fall in love with ourselves that’s for sure. I thought it was a pretty decent performance. It wasn’t without fault, we will look at that.

“I’m pleased for the players. I thought we managed it pretty well today not to let Leeds get back into the game. We felt they were a little off their game today.”

Smith felt his team had been building towards the performance against Leeds after getting off the mark the week before against Huddersfield with a one-point win.

Smith said: “We’ve been competitive in each of our games and I think we’ve been getting better in most of our games.

“I’m really pleased for the players, they’ve been working hard and they have got the spoils. As a club we have not won back to back games since 2018 and that’s too long.”
