Hull KR raced away in the second half to claim a 28-18 victory over Bradford and return to the Super League top eight.

Rovers were 8-4 behind at half-time but came alive after the interval to take the spoils at MS3 Craven Park and banish the memory of their last-minute derby defeat a week ago.

Lincoln Withers and Rhys Lovegrove ran in two tries each, while Craig Hall also crossed the whitewash. Jarrod Sammut, Keith Lulia and Michael Platt touched down for the Bulls.

It was Francis Cummins' side who made the brighter start and Sammut opened the scoring with 10 minutes gone as he broke out of a tackle and exchanged passes with Lulia before dotting down.

Rovers responded well and three successive penalties took them close to Bradford's 10 metre line before Lovegrove dragged himself over despite the attention of Luke Gale and Matty Blythe.

Michael Dobson failed with the goal to leave the Bulls two points in front and although Rovers enjoyed plenty of pressure, it was Sammut who extended the visitors' lead shortly before the interval.

The advantage added to again after the interval when Heath L'Estrange, Sammut and Gale linked up to send Lulia in.

Rovers were in desperate need of a response and they got it when Lovegrove took a short Dobson pass to go in for his second score. Dobson tagged on the extras to move to within two points and the home side had a first lead with 66 minutes gone as Travis Burns sent Withers racing clear.

It gave the Robins a semblance of control and they went further ahead when Dobson snaffled the ball from a Brett Kearney kick, ran 40 metres and sent Craig Hall in for another try.

Bradford's only option was to take a short restart but in keeping with their fortune it backfired as Withers picked it up and made his way to the posts unopposed, leaving Rovers safe at 28-12.

There was still time for another score as the reeling Bulls managed to get a consolation on the board, Platt taking a Gale kick and dotting down under the posts.
