Hull KR break records

Hull KR have sold out their second consecutive league game at Craven Park for their Good Friday derby against Hull.

The Robins become the first Super League side in over ten years to do so.

They enjoyed a sell-out crowd of 10,069 as Tony Smith’s side claimed a comfortable 34-18 win over Warrington in round seven.

Historic day for Cornwall RLFC

League 1’s Cornwall RLFC hosted their first ever home fixture this weekend.

The sport’s newest side enjoyed a big crowd, but fell short in a battle of the expansionists with a 60-14 score against Midlands Hurricanes.

World Cup hopeful Dom Young injury

Newcastle Knights winger Dom Young left the field with injury during their clash with Manly Sea Eagles in the NRL earlier this week.

The World Cup hopeful injured his knee attempting to score a try in the first half of the clash on Thursday. He picked up the injury sliding over for what could have been the first try of the night. He was assessed by the trainer before being taken from the field.

Jai Field magic

It was another impressive performance from Wigan full-back Jai Field in their 36-6 Challenge Cup victory over Wakefield. The 24-year-old leads the way on the Man of Steel leaderboard in Super League with 15 points and he impressed in the cup competition, scoring a hat-trick at Belle Vue.

Matt Peet’s side will face St Helens in the semi-finals at Leeds United’s Elland Road.

  1. Firstly,selling out a game when the capacity of your stadium is a paltry 10,000 is not much to celebrate and secondly, I thought Craven Park`s capacity was 12,000 a few years ago?
