Leeds Rhinos have beaten Hull Kingston Rovers 44-10 at New Craven Park in the Super League this afternoon.

The hosts made a strong start to the match, taking the lead through an early Cory Patterson try.

However, efforts from Ryan Hall, Brett Delaney, Zak Hardaker and Mitch Achurch gave the visitors a comfortable lead at half time, with boos ringing out from the home supporters.

Leeds's momentum continued as the start of the second 40 minutes, as Joel Moon crossed the whitewash within two minutes of the restart.

A brace from Kallum Watkins and Ian Kirke's first Super League try in almost two years helped extend the lead, while Omari Caro added a late consolation for the hosts.

The result leaves Leeds fourth in the table, while Hull KR sit ninth.
