Super League bottom side Salford held off a late Hull KR fightback to clinch a priceless victory.

Salford made a good start with tries from John Wilshere, Luke Dorn and Aaron Moule within the first seven minutes.

But Hull KR hit back through Jim Gannon, Mark O'Neill and debutant Mark Lennon before Luke Robinson eased Salford's fears with another try.

Although Jon Goddard cut Salford's lead, David Hodgson responded before Andreas Bauer's late consolation try.


Hull KR coach Justin Morgan (on the appointment of non-Super League referee Gareth Hewer to the game)
"The two biggest games this weekend were Leeds v St Helens and this game, for two very different reasons, and I think the appointment of the officials should have reflected that - and that is all I am going to say.

"However, we had enough chances to win three games and I will be looking at why we did not convert them.

"There is no character in coming from behind."
Did you go to the game?

What happened in the first 8min's to be 16 point's down?

You had the chances to win the game, what went wrong?

Was in poor KR or good Salford?

How are you feeling about another defeat?

The first ten minutes were so poor it was ridiculous. After that we dominated the game for probably three quarters of the match. Rovers are so close to being a good side but an alarming lack of Super League centres makes us so vulnerable out wide.Bottom line yesterday though was it was two invaluable points just thrown away because of lack of composure.
eg Dropped the ball over the line (I think three times!) ; two penalties in front of the sticks and elected to tap - why?
Hate to say it but I think that result yesterday may well cost us VERY dear at the end of the season.The difference between us and Salford could and should have been 5 points now instead of a skimpy 1 point. We're still by no means out of it but we now desparately need to turn it around.Like always a lot will depend on the injuries we pick up and of course likewise to our relegation rivals.
Not too dispirited though Old Faithful - not the end of the world! Besides if we do get relegated I'll just have to concentrate my efforts on finding a wealthy insatiable young blonde bird with a big bust who thinks I'm the best thing since sliced bread.
Know any?

From what I saw of the highlights it looked like Salford ripped Hull KR apart in the first 10 minutes, but after that Hull KR dominated for long spells of the game but Salfords defence was very good (for a change!) and they scored two very good second half tries, all in all I thoought it was the right result.

I have to agree.
I took a mate who is from salford to this in the hope of rubbing in the fact that they would be stranded on the bottom of the league.
The opening 10 were a disgrace.
it was a good fightback, but rovers need someone who knows how to put the ball between the posts and convert on a regular basis. not just 2 from 5.
we had an oportunity to take 2 points and then get the ball back and run at salford, but for some reason we didnt bother. possibly because Morgan dosent trust mortons boot either.

It's like Morgan said on the Radio
"when i'm up in the grand stand i don't really have a say on the penalties. I just trust in the leader's on the park too make the right decision".

Which they didn't.
