Hull KR coach Willie Peters says Ryan Hall will go for scans in the coming days after the winger left the action early in their win at Wakefield.

The England international limped off the field early in the first half of their 34-6 win at Wakefield on Friday night with a knee injury.

Speaking after the game, Peters confirmed that his star winger Ryan Hall will go for scans this coming week.

Peters said: “I don’t know a great deal, he’ll have to go for scans.

“I’m hoping it’s nothing major. There’s an injury there but I’m not sure of the significance. I think it will be a few weeks out.”

Willie Peters pleased with Hull KR display

It was a comfortable win for Hull KR on Friday night against a depleted Wakefield side.

Sam Wood, Louis Senior, Tom Opacic and Kane Linnett crossed in the first half to give the Robins an 18-0 lead at the break.

Mikey Lewis, Elliot Minchella and Opacic posted further tries for Hull KR in the second half. Trinity grabbed a late consolation try through Jai Whitbread as they fell to a sixth straight defeat.

Peters praised his side’s defence as they ended a three-game losing run.

He said; “I’m really pleased. It’s always tough coming to Wakefield. They were searching for that win and we didn’t want it to be us.

“We set the platform in the first 20 minutes. We didn’t make it easy for ourselves, we had some unforced errors, but I was really pleased with how we defended our try-line.

“And we wanted to be a side that defends well and works hard for each other, and I think that was on show tonight.

“We had three losses in a row but we weren’t too far off. It wasn’t perfect, but it was definitely a step in the right direction.”

There has been plenty of talk over Wakefield’s pitch so far this season, with an inspection held earlier in the week to ensure the game could go ahead.

Peters didn’t want to comment on the pitch after the game at Belle Vue, saying: “I don’t want to go too much into it.

“We got through it, there was no major concerns. There’s some scratches, but it is what it is.”

Next up for Hull KR is a home game against Leeds at Craven Park on Friday night.
