Hull KR came from behind to beat London Broncos and make it two wins from three in Super League 2019.

Kane Linnett crossed to put the hosts in front inside five minutes but Kieran Dixon added the extras to Matty Gee's score to give the visitors a narrow lead at the break.

Mitch Garbutt went over twice and Craig Hall once as the Robins took control.

Jay Pitts gave the visitors some hope with 10 minutes to play but the hosts comfortably held out.

London, who won on their opening weekend return to the top flight against Wakefield, have now lost twice on their travels - at Salford and now in the east of Hull.

Victory for the hosts gave them the perfect response to last week's defeat by Warrington Wolves.

Prop Garbutt's double took his tally of tries for the season to three, equalling his previous best for an entire season.

Both teams are back in action on Saturday, with the Robins looking for a third home win of the year against Salford and London hosting Castleford.

Hull KR: Dagger, Crooks, J. Keinhorst, Vaivai, Hall, McGuire, Drinkwater, Mulhern, Lawler, Masoe, Linnett, Hauraki, Greenwood.

Replacements: Lee, Garbutt, Lannon, Atkin.

London Broncos: Walker, Dixon, Morgan, Kear, Williams, Abdull, Cunningham, Mason, Fozard, Richards, Pitts, Gee, Yates.

Replacements: Pelissier, Ioane, Battye, Lovell.

Referee: Scott Mikalauskas (RFL)
