Full-back Adam Quinlan scored the match-winning try on his comeback from a nine-month injury lay-off as Tony Smith enjoyed his first win as Hull KR coach against his old club Warrington.

Warrington were on course for a fourth win of the season against the Robins 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.

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.

Despite having the worst defence in Super League, Smith's men managed to restrict their free-scoring visitors to just two tries and condemn them to a sixth defeat of the season.

Williams scores twice as Broncos secure famous win in France

Danny Ward was handed the perfect 39th birthday present as London Broncos followed up their win over St Helens by shocking Catalans Dragons 30-12 in Perpignan.

The Broncos remain at the bottom of the Betfred Super League table on points difference, joining Hull KR and Leeds Rhinos on 12 points, as the relegation battle intensified.

Fouad Yaha scored a hat-trick in vain for Catalans as Rhys Williams scored two tries and Kieran Dixon added 14 points as London completed a famous win.
