Hull KR recorded a second straight victory in The Qualifiers as they won at Leigh Sports Village for the second time this season.

Following on from their 23-10 Challenge Cup win in April, they again restricted Leigh to two tries, from Daniel Mortimer and Atelea Vea.

But Rovers ran in three themselves from the experienced Shaun Lunt, who got two, and winger Ryan Shaw.

Jamie Ellis kicked four goals for Rovers, matched by Leigh’s Josh Drinkwater.

Both sides had won their opening game in The Qualifiers, but only Rovers and Warrington, who beat Catalans Dragons, now have 100 per cent records.
