Vikings' youthful boost
Blake Green to have scan on a knee injury
Hull KR boss Craig Sandercock paid tribute to his young side after they ended a four-match losing run with a 32-26 win at Widnes.
Sandercock gave debuts to centre Chris Heil and sub George Griffin, and also included youngsters Louis Sheriff, Liam Salter and Dave Petersen.
"I was a little worried about playing so many youngsters but they rose to the occasion," Sandercock said.
"They showed the right attitude and passion and that's what kids can give you. They certainly stepped up to the mark. They are going to make mistakes but we need to persevere with them.
"Louis Sheriff made a mistake but bounced back and had a solid match. Ben Galea led from the front and was outstanding."
The only blow for Rovers was a knee injury sustained by Blake Green, who did not appear in the second half and will have a scan tomorrow. "Hopefully he will only be out a couple of weeks," said Sandercock.
The Vikings lost Ben Cross and Mellor to injury in the first 12 minutes and then Steve Pickersgill was forced off midway through the first half.
Widnes boss Denis Betts said: "It was tough with 14 players and we didn't have any luck.
"They had the impact off the bench with Michael Dobson controlling things and Ben Galea was very good.
"We got a bit too over-enthusiastic and tried a little bit too hard but it was a brave effort.
"We conceded a couple of soft tries and that is unacceptable. But we are fighting hard to win games and the fans appreciate that. They really got behind us."
