Warrington Wolves 38-10 Hull KR

Warrington Wolves proved too strong for Hull Kingston Rovers for the second time in as many weeks, claiming a 38-10 victory that places them in the draw for the Carnegie Challenge Cup fifth round.

The victory comes as Challenge Cup revenge for the Wolves, having suffered a shock defeat at the hands of then-National League Hull KR in last season’s quarter finals.

Brent Grose opened the scoring for the home side with an 11th-minute try, but the Robins levelled matters at 4-4 just two minutes later thanks to an interception from David Tangata-Toa.  

An error strewn first half did not see any further scoring until just before the break, when Stuart Reardon used his strength to get over the line and give Warrington a 10-4 lead at the interval.

The Wolves took control after the restart, Vinnie Anderson touching down off the back of a Paul Rauhihi offload, before Chris Bridge stepped through a gap in Rovers’ defence to extend Warrington’s advantage.

Kirk Netherton gave Hull KR a brief moment of hope, but three tries in the closing minutes Grose, Anderson and Rauhihi ensured the Wolves’ passage to the next round of the cup.
