Smith gets first KR win in dramatic fashion
Full-back Adam Quinlan scored the match-winning try on his comeback from a nine-month injury lay-off as Hull KR edged a 16-14 Betfred Super League victory over Warrington Wolves.
The win saw Tony Smith enjoy his first win as Robins coach against his old club.
Warrington were on course for a fourth win of the season against KR when they led 14-10 with five minutes left but Quinlan struck the crucial blow to level the scores and Ryan Shaw kicked the touchline conversion to secure a famous 16-14 victory.
Mose Masoe scored the other try for KR with Shaw booting eight points, while Bryson Goodwin and Josh Charnley crossed for the wolves with Declan Patton kicking three goals.
The victory takes the Robins level on points with 10th-placed Leeds and provides them with a major lift ahead of Thursday’s crucial basement battle with London Broncos in Ealing.
