Leeds Rhinos made it two wins from two in the Qualifiers with a narrow victory over Hull KR at Headingley.

A Kallum Watkins try and two Liam Sutcliffe goals forged an eight-point lead for the home side at half-time.

Hull KR, who started the Qualifiers by thrashing Batley, pulled level at 8-8 after James Greenwood's score.

But two tries from Leeds hooker James Segeyaro secured victory, the second after James Donaldson had gone over for the visitors to ensure a nervy finish.
