BEN AIMS TO ERASE ROVERS' HORROR MOMENT.

Byline: GARETH WALKER

HULL KR winger Ben Cockayne is hoping for a better experience than his last Challenge Cup semi-final when the Robins take on Warrington today.

Cockayne is the only surviving member of the Rovers side beaten 50-0 by St Helens in 2006. The Robins were a part-time National League One team then and, despite being underdogs again this afternoon, they are now competing as a fellow Super League club.

Cockayne (right) said: "Whereas in 2006 we were a bit realistic that we weren't going to get to Wembley, this time we have more of a chance. Don't get me wrong, it will be a tough task against Warrington, and they have had more success at Wembley than anyone in the last few years.

"It's an absolutely massive challenge for us, but we can go into the game with some confidence."
