THE TEAM NEWS

HULL KR

Head Coach: Tim Sheens

Squad: Atkin, Crooks, Dagger, Drinkwater, Garbutt, Greenwood, Hall, Hauraki, Jewitt, Keinhorst, Lannon, Lawler, Lee, Linnett, Masoe, McGuire, Mulhern, Tomkins, Vaivai

Unavailable: Adam Quinlan, Shaun Lunt, Nick Scruton, Ryan Shaw, Danny Addy

  • Hull KR suffered their first defeat of the season as they made errors at crucial times against Warrington as they went down to a 28-14 loss on the road but will be hopeful of getting back to winning ways back on home soil this week.

  • Despite being hospitalised after a heavy challenge saw him suffer what was described as a ‘serious’ concussion, Hull KR could have captain Joel Tomkins available this week after he was named in the 19-man squad.

  • Lee Jewitt also returns to the squad for the first time this season after recovering from injury and he replaces utility man Danny Addy who is suffering from a shoulder injury which could see him miss a few games.

LONDON BRONCOS

Head Coach: Danny Ward

Squad: Abdull, Adebiyi, Battye, Cunningham, Dixon, Fleming, Fozard, Gee, Ioane, Kear, Lovell, Mason, Morgan, Pelissier, Pitts, Richards, Walker, Williams, Yates

Unavailable:

  • London were given a reality check as they were shut out by Salford with the Broncos unable to back up their opening round victory in a tough away say and they face another trip on the road this week.

  • London head coach Danny Ward will not reach for the panic button and make wholesale changes but may introduce a couple of new faces despite naming the same 19-man squad as last week.

  • The Broncos will need to find the attacking flair that served them so well in Round 1 against Wakefield after numerous errors last time out against Salford with the Londoners wasting several good opportunities to cross the whitewash.

THE PREDICTION

Hull KR host London this week and will view it as the perfect opportunity to get another win under their belts after their loss at Warrington. Rovers put in a decent performance last time out but lost their composure when it mattered which saw the game slip away from them in the second half. London on the other hand could not get anything going in attack and they could struggle again on the road with Hull KR too strong on home soil.
