Hull KR have offered fans who went to Friday's 60-0 defeat by Wigan Warriors free tickets to the game between the sides in the Challenge Cup.

The Robins were missing several regular starters including Josh Mantellato who was at his brother's wedding.

They return to the DW Stadium in the Challenge Cup fifth round on 15 May.

"I looked over to the away end and saw fans doing the conga whilst we trailed 60-0 and thought they don't deserve this," coach Chris Chester said.

"It's a massive game for us so we want to take a big and noisy following and make it a real cup tie. As I've already said I am confident it will be a totally different game to what we saw on Friday."

Chief executive Mike Smith told the club website:external-link "Friday was a tough day for everyone at the club but the unwavering support coming from the away end was nothing short of phenomenal.

"We know fans pay their hard earned money to follow us home and away and we never take that for granted.

"That was our fourth away game in a row on the back of an expensive weekend away to Catalan for many and it would have been easy for them to stay at home and watch it on TV."

The Robins are currently 10th in Super League and host bottom side Wakefield on Thursday.
