Leeds Rhinos eased past Hull KR but the victory was overshadowed by a suspected double leg-break for Harry Newman.

The Leeds centre suffered the injury 30 minutes in and was taken to hospital after being carried off on a stretcher.

By that point Rhinos were 18-0 up and scored seven tries in all, including two for Ash Handley, as they beat Rovers for the second time in six days.

Hull KR managed scores through Jimmy Keinhorst, Ryan Brierley and Shaun Kenny-Dowall but fell well short.

Rovers made 11 changes from the side beaten by Leeds in the Challenge Cup quarter-finals, giving a debut to academy full-back Will Tate, while wing Nick Rawsthorne made his first Super League appearance the club.
