Hull KR climbed above Warrington into sixth place in the Super League as they came from behind to win at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Wire led Rovers 16-12 at the break thanks to two tries from Jake Wardle.

But Matt Parcell, Ethan Ryan and St Helens loanee Sam Royle all crossed after the break to bolster Ben Crooks and Sam Wood’s scoring in the first half.

A second win in a row for Rovers from interim boss Danny McGuire propelled them above well beaten neighbors Hull FC.

Ryan’s 100th career try helped Rovers keep their play-off hopes alive as they battled from a narrow four-point half-time deficit, only to find themselves trailing 22-12 again in the middle of the second half when Thomas Mikaele claimed his first try in Warrington colours. .

But three tries in the final 14 minutes, from Parcell on the bench, winger Ryan and second-row striker Royle, all converted by Lachlan Coote, helped Rovers come back strong for a ninth league win in the league. season.

Stefan Ratchford kicked all five attempts for Wire, but their 13th loss of the campaign leaves them just four points clear of bottom two Toulouse, who they will host next month, and Wakefield.

The game first turned midway through the first half when Rovers hit back with two tries in four minutes after Warrington’s Peter Mata’utia was sent to the trash for a high tackle on Coote.

Rovers took advantage instantly when Wood crashed in and, when Coote and Will Dagger each netted a conversion, the lead was reduced to 14-12 before Ratchford netted their fourth goal of the half as KR was caught offside.

When Rovers were reduced to 12 men after Elliot Minchella was sent to the trash for holding Mikaele down as he chased down Danny Walker’s spot-kick, the hosts scored from the resulting penalty.

Mikaele crashed at close range but Rovers still had plenty in the tank.

Parcell passed, Coote converted, then Ryan picked up a Jez Litten kick beautifully on his shoelaces to rush. And Coote’s conversion edged Rovers ahead of Ryan’s late score.

Rovers’ next test is at Wigan on Thursday night, while Wire return to Huddersfield on Saturday.

Caretaker Hull KR boss Danny McGuire told BBC Radio Humberside:

“I honestly don’t know what to say, there were so many twists and turns and things that went wrong for us. I told the players afterwards, it was the most daring and committed performance to which I never participated.

“They kept meeting. I asked for it. I wanted them to commit to each other and to the cause and there was no better publicity for that than tonight .

“I’m really proud to lead them and they’ve been great and they really deserved it.”
