Ryan Shaw’s try sealed promotion to the Super League for Hull KR as they beat Widnes.

Rovers, who were relegated last season after losing to Salford in the ‘Million Pound Game’, led by two at the break.

Jamie Ellis’ penalty had put them ahead but Hep Cahill crossed for Widnes before Mose Masoe’s sensational offload put in Thomas Minns to make it 8-6.

Shaw’s 80-metre score, the only one of the second half, was enough to maintain their unbeaten run in the Qualifiers.

Following Warrington’s victory over Leigh, both Wolves and Hull KR have 10 points and have guaranteed their places in Super League next season.

Widnes, who saw their three-match winning run ended, must now battle it out with Leigh and Catalans Dragons for the other automatic place.
