Hull KR’s Shaun Kenny-Dowall celebrates scoring his try against Salford

Hull Kingston Rovers ran in seven tries as they racked up their fifth win in Super League this season by trouncing Salford Red Devils 40-4 in Friday’s match at Hull College Craven Park.

Ken Sio gave Salford the perfect start, but Rovers took advantage when Chris Atkin was sin-binned by hitting back through scores from George Lawler and Ben Crooks while the half-back was off the field.

Brad Takairangi’s first try for Hull KR saw the hosts enter the break 16-4 up, and although Rovers lost Adam Quinlan to the sin-bin in the second half the Red Devils were unable to capitalise and further tries from Shaun Kenny-Dowall, Matt Parcell, Ryan Hall and Kane Linnett put the seal on the win.

A miserable night for the visitors was further compounded by Pauli Pauli being sent off on the final play of the match for a late hit on Rovers half-back Jordan Abdull.
