In the run up to Christmas we are looking back on 2019 and picking out the biggest moments in Hull KR’s year.

There were plenty of low points during the Super League season but it wasn’t all doom and gloom.

Rovers fans have had moments to savour, although they are unlikely to look back on the year with much fondness.

In the countdown to Christmas, Hull Live is taking a look back at the biggest moments of the year.

Number 5: Keinhorst’s derby winner

Every team goes into a new season with optimism and Hull KR were no different at the start of 2019 after making a number of eye-catching signings.

Jimmy Keinhorst was one of those new boys and he became an instant hero on his debut on a bitterly cold opening night at Craven Park.

Rovers were up against it after Hull FC opened up an early 12-0 lead only to turn the game on its head thanks to tries from Joel Tomkins and Mitch Garbutt, with the hosts 14-12 up at the break.

Hull appeared to have snatched the win thanks to Bureta Faraimo’s effort but Keinhorst had other ideas.

The centre’s flying finish in the dying seconds won the game for the Robins and although the rest of the season didn’t go to plan, it is a victory that will live long in the memory.
