Hull KR bounced back from a hammering last time out to beat St Helens 22-14.

Rovers lost 84-6 to Wigan last Monday but responded well to run in four tries through Josh and Dave Hodgson, Cory Paterson and Alex Brown.

Mark Percival scored two tries for St Helens while Adam Swift also touched down for the visitors.

Saints, who were looking for their first win at Craven Park since 2007, lost Mark Flanagan to a third minute knee injury and they conceded the game's first try when Greg Eden sent Dave Hodgson over in the left corner for his ninth try of the season.

The Robins increased their lead when Josh Hodgson spotted a very small gap under the posts to stretch out and score from dummy half, with Craig Hall this time making no mistake with the conversion.

Rovers were then guilty of not defending properly on the blindside where Percival was sent over the line by Tommy Makinson on the first tackle.

Rising star Percival enhanced his growing reputation by splitting the uprights with the conversion to cut Rovers' lead to four points after 30 minutes.

Percival's second try of the game levelled matters three minutes before the interval, with Rovers winger Brown caught coming inside leaving a big gap for Percival to sprint clear to score from 35 metres.

Rovers went back in front when Paterson was in the right place to take Dobson's clever assist over despite the attention of Saints captain Paul Wellens. Hall landed the conversion.

Swift pounced on a loose ball and sprinted the remaining 90 metres untouched to raise St Helens' hopes.

But back came the Robins and on the right hand side of their attack, Eden showed great hands to get the ball outside to his winger Brown to score. Hall then confirmed the victory with a last-minute penalty.
