THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

HULL KR

Head Coach: Tim Sheens

Squad: Atkin, Blair, Clarkson, Donaldson, Greenwood, Jewitt, Kavanagh, Lunt, Masoe, McGuire, Mulhern, Oakes, Quinlan, Salter, Scruton, Tickle, Tomkins, Vaivai, Wallis

Unavailable: Danny Addy, George Lawler, Andrew Heffernan, Thomas Minns, Todd Carney, Ryan Shaw, Justin Carney, Tommy Lee

  • Hull KR came out on top against Widnes in an intriguing contest. After a first half littered with errors, the game came to life in the second half with Rovers just doing enough to hang on for a 24-26 win.

  • Rovers are without Justin Carney after the winger suffered yet another injury on his return to the side last week. Tommy Lee is also out but Lee Jewitt and Junior Vaivai return to the 19.

  • Hull KR won their third game in succession with last week’s win and although their Super 8s fate is out of their own hands, they need a win here to ensure that they at least have a shot of sneaking into the top 8.

WARRINGTON WOLVES

Head Coach: Steve Price

Squad: Akauola, K. Brown, M. Brown, Charnley, Clark, Cooper, Hill, Hughes, G. King, T. King, Lineham, Livett, Moran, Patton, Philbin, Pomeroy, Ratchford, Roberts, Smith

Unavailable: Ben Currie, Ryan Atkins, Ben Murdoch-Masila, Bryson Goodwin, Ben Westwood

  • Warrington couldn’t hold on against Catalans last week as the French side hit back to secure a draw late on. The Wolves went ahead in the second half but allowed the Dragons to level the scores with a penalty inside the last 10 with the score remaining 22-all after that point.

  • Ben Westwood and Bryson Goodwin both miss out through injuries and are replaced in the squad by Morgan Smith and Pat Moran.

  • Warrington have won five of their last six away fixtures in Super League and will be keen to extend that run after failing to win either of their last two matches.

THE PREDICTION

Hull KR’s fate could be sealed this weekend but a win for the Robins as well as other results going their way could see them take their Super 8s challenge into the final week of the regular season. They need that win to come against Warrington who will also be looking for a win to cement their top 4 place. The Wolves are secure in fourth place at the moment and will benefit from an extra home game in the Super 8s as a result but they will be looking to put further daylight between themselves and the chasing pack ahead of the league split. They’ve been good away recently with just one loss from six whilst Rovers have won three of their last four at home, making it an intriguing battle. Warrington might have too much here but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Hull KR edge it either.
