Official Report / Commentary

Free-scoring winger Josh Mantellato produced a 22-point haul as Hull KR atoned for their 60-0 thrashing by Wigan Warriors with a comfortable win over Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.

A week after suffering their heaviest defeat of the season, the Robins achieved their biggest win, with Mantellato marking his return to the side with two of their 10 tries and seven goals from nine attempts in a 54-6 triumph over Wakefield.

Mantellato, First Utility Super League's leading scorer, missed his side's rout by Wigan after returning to Australia for his brother's wedding and Hull KR were also boosted by the return from injury of skipper Terry Campese, who was at his influential best in a transformed display.

It was sweet revenge for Rovers' 44-24 defeat at Wakefield earlier this year and lifts them out of the bottom four.

Wakefield, who have conceded 40 points or more in each of their past eight matches, remain rooted to the foot of the table, five points adrift of their nearest rivals after suffering an 11th successive defeat.

Mantellato made his first impact on 12 minutes, collecting Campese's high kick and laying the ball back for Adam Walker to get centre Kris Welham over for the first try.

Campese was also involved as the former Newcastle Knights three-quarter then got on the end of full-back Ben Cockayne's pass to finish off a superb cross-field passing move to score his first try.

Mantellato was unable to convert either try and Wakefield, who were well served by scrum-half Tim Smith, struck back on 23 minutes when centre Joe Arundel slipped the tackle of Ken Sio to touch down, with former Rovers stand-off Craig Hall adding the goal.

The impressive Cockayne then carved out an eighth try of the season for scrum-half Albert Kelly before Campese demonstrated quick thinking by racing into the vacant acting half-back role to get Mantellato over for his second of the match.

Mantellato converted both to give his side a 20-6 interval lead but the Wildcats were the livelier side at the start of the second half.

The visitors lacked a killer touch, however, and Rovers put the game beyond them with three quick-fire tries following an enforced reshuffle.

Cockayne was forced off with concussion seven minutes into the second half after being caught high by Wakefield's Matt Ryan, but Sio switched to full-back and Graeme Horne slotted effortlessly into the three-quarter line.

Horne got Hull KR's next try, latching onto Kelly's neat grubber kick, and Kieran Dixon struck twice in five minutes to pile on the agony for James Webster's men.

The former London Broncos flier fluffed one glorious try-scoring opportunity when he failed to find the support after breaking clear but more than made amends.

First he pounced on a handling error from winger Chris Riley and then made the most of a kind bounce from Kelly's kick to double his tally for the night.

The Wildcats were reeling by then and Sio finished them off, rounding off a break from substitute Aaron Ollett to touch down before going through a gap to get hooker John Boudebza over for his first Super League try.

Loose forward Tyrone McCarthy wrapped up the scoring three minutes from time with Rovers' 10th try to bring up the half-century, and Mantellato kicked his seventh goal.
