Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock hails Alex Brown hat-trick
HULL KR coach Craig Sandercock hailed hat-trick hero Alex Brown after the 42-22 win at London, but says he still has plenty to learn.
KR made it back-to-back wins for the first time since last June with a 42-22 win in the capital.
Brown ran in a first-half trio of tries to earn the Robins' first away win of the Super League season, but Sandercock says Brown still has areas to develop.

"If Alex keeps doing that week in, week out it will be difficult to drop him.
"But there are still a lot of things he needs to learn, and we will sit down with him, watch the tapes and work on those things.
"Back-to-back wins builds confidence, and we can work on this."
Rovers did their damage in the first half with six tries, three of which were converted by Michael Dobson.
Kris Welham scored two but Alex Brown was the star of the first half with a blistering hat-trick. Greg Eden also scored with Craig Gower replying for the Broncos.
London made a game of it at the start of the second half with Kieran Dixon and Chris Bailey scoring to make it 30-18 before Rovers killed the game off through tries from Liam Salter and Cory Paterson.
A late Sarginson try was nothing more than a consolation try for London as Rovers won 42-22.
