Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock heaped praise on his side for beating Wakefield so convincingly despite missing a host of players and being heavily penalised in the match.

Rovers were without the likes of Dave Hodgson, Craig Hall, Sean Gleeson, Jonny Walker, Jamie Langley and Justin Poore but they refused to let that affect them as they ran out 44-6 victors at the KC Lightstream Stadium.

"Today was another small step in the right direction," Sandercock said. "It's pleasing because we were missing so many key players and we were caned 8-3 in the penalty count.

"I don't want to complain too much about that. I'll sit down and have a look at why we were penalised so much. When you lose the penalty count by so much, usually it's a closer scoreline."

Rovers came within two minutes of recording back-to-back shut-outs for the first time in Super League, only for Pita Godinet to score a late converted try for the Wildcats.

Sandercock admits he was disappointed not to keep Wakefield out, but could have few complaints about the final scoreline.

"If someone had told me it would be 44-6 at full-time I would have taken that," he said. "I can't be too critical but I was very disappointed to have conceded that late try.

"It would have been great but it didn't happen."

Hull KR had the points all but sewn up by half-time as they established a 22-0 lead, and Wakefield coach Richard Agar was far from impressed by his side's response in the second period.

He also accused his team of producing a performance that "lacked skill, effort and desire".

"What we served up there was terribly short of what we need to do," Agar said. "Some of the defence in the second half showed that we lacked effort.

"I thought that some of the tries in the second half made it look like we had waved the white flag. I don't think we were beaten by quality rugby.

"It's brought up a few questions as to why we would have a performance that lacked skill, effort and desire.

"We had so many blokes not wanting to work hard for each other. We will look at why our commitment and skills were so low."
