Hull KR record fourth win

Hull KR remain top of the Championship after recording their fourth successive win. Tim Sheens’ side made light work of Oldham, who knew their opponents would be determined to gain revenge for their embarrassing Challenge Cup exit last season. The result was effectively decided within the first 30 minutes when the Robins held a comfortable 30-0 lead. After conceding the first try in their previous three games, Rovers opened the scoring with just five minutes on the clock. Jamie Ellis kicked the first of his eight successful conversions. Shaun Lunt was the next over the Oldham line two minutes later before James Donaldson added his name to the scoresheet as Rovers led 18-0 after 10 minutes. Mitch clark’s departure because of an ankle injury didn’t slow Rovers down and Nick Scruton continued his impressive start to the season with a fourth Rovers try. Jordan Abdull went over for KR’s fifth try as Oldham struggled to get a foothold in the game. The scoring dried up before and after the interval until Jamie Ellis scored shortly after Rovers were reduced to 12 men following Nick Scruton’s yellow card. Kieren Moss’ long range try edged Rovers closer to the half century, but they fell just short even though Minns scored with 10 minutes remaining.
