HULL KR ran in 14 tries as they romped to a 70-14 Super League XVI win over Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.

The hosts ran in early tries from Liam Colborn and former Wildcat Peter Fox but Wakefield, for whom winger Semi Tadulala was making his debut after signing for the club last week, responded through scores from Kevin Henderson and Tommy Lee to lead 10-8.

However, the Robins dominated the rest of the game and touch-downs from Kris Welham, Jake Webster, Michael Dobson, Colborn and Fox, together with three conversions from Dobson, gave Hull a 34-10 half-time lead.

The one-way traffic continued in the second period and Clint Newton’s brace, Webster’s second, Fox’s hat-trick try and two more for Welham took the home side’s tally to 64 points.

Luke George crossed with five minutes remaining but the final word went to Rovers when Colborn went over to complete his hat-trick.
