Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock denied his side's hard-fought Magic Weekend win over Hull made up for last year's controversial loss to their rivals.

Rovers withstood a strong fightback from 12-man Hull to beat their neighbours 38-24 in their latest First Utility Super League clash at the Etihad Stadium.

It was a sweet victory for Robins fans after the infamous late video refereeing blunder of 12 months ago, but Sandercock was concerned only about the result.

Asked if it made up for last year's loss, Sandercock said: "Make up for it? For us it was about putting in a performance today and making sure we did the little things well.

"I thought we did that for periods of the game. Obviously we weren't at our best. It doesn't make up for last year but what it does do is give us two points. Two points are like gold in this competition."

Some of Hull's recovery came after Jason Crookes was sent off for a high tackle on Liam Salter but late tries from Ade Gardner - his second of the game - and Josh Hodgson sealed Rovers' success.

"I was a little concerned. We let in some soft tries and they were a little bit disappointing. Credit to Hull, they came back well, but I thought if we could get some decent ball we had the quality there to score points."

Disneyland

Salter left the action after the Crookes clash and Sandercock added: "He is in Disneyland at the moment.

"We don't play until next Sunday, so at least we have got a long turnaround, but the poor kid is struggling. But he is a good east Hull kid, he is a tough kid. He was standing up after the game, which is a good sign.

"Personally, I feel it was a sending off, but that is not for me to judge."

Hull coach Lee Radford, who has been heavily critical of his side in recent weeks, was at least pleased with their effort.

"If you look at the last try we were out on our feet a bit but I thought the actual effort after we went down to 12 was fantastic and probably deserved something out of the game," he said.

"But I have no qualms. We have got to tap into the energy and enthusiasm that we played with when we went down to 12 men, bring that to the party on a more regular basis.

"The spectators ask for energy and commitment and we did that. Now we have just got to carry that into next Friday."
