THE TEAM NEWS

HULL KR

Head Coach: Tim Sheens

Squad: Addy, Atkin, Bardle, Crooks, Drinkwater, Garbutt, Hall, Harrison, Hauraki, Jewitt, Keinhorst, Lawler, Lee, Linnett, Lunt, McGuire, Mulhern, Oakes, Tomkins

  • Hull KR suffered a humiliating loss to local rivals Hull FC as the Red and Whites went down to a record-breaking defeat in their Good Friday showdown as they allowed their opponents to rack up 56 points.

  • In a very one-sided second half, Rovers couldn’t live with the Black and Whites as they allowed them to run in 38 points with the manner of that effort causing great concern for Tim Sheens.

  • He will have a big job picking his players up ahead of their Easter Monday clash with Warrington and has opted to make just one change to his squad with Junior Vaivai dropping out with a dead leg and his place is taken by youngster Harry Bardle.

WARRINGTON WOLVES

Head Coach: Steve Price

Squad: Akauola, Atkins, Austin, Charnley, D. Clark, J. Clark, Cooper, Davis, Goodwin, Hill, Hughes, King, Lineham, Livett, Murdoch-Masila, Patton, Philbin, Ratchford, Tasi, Walker, Westwood

Unavailable: Kevin Brown, Jake Mamo, Ben Currie

  • Warrington were on the end of a heavy defeat to Salford on Good Friday as the Wolves suffered their second big loss in succession after coming out second best in their top of the table clash with St Helens in their previous game.

  • Salford blitzed the Wolves early on and raced into a 22-point half-time lead which proved far too big a hurdle with Salford managing to edge the second half too as they condemned Warrington to a 12-36 defeat.

  • Warrington have named an extended 21-man squad due to several fitness tests that are required with Ben Currie dropping out for the Wolves whilst Tom Lineham returns from suspension along with Sitaleki Akauloa and Danny Walker.

THE PREDICTION

Both Hull KR and Warrington suffered defeats on Good Friday and may opt to name stronger teams than they were hoping for as they look to avoid coming out of the Easter period pointless. Rovers were demolished by Hull FC whilst Warrington suffered a hammering against Salford with both having plenty to improve on. With little time to prepare, it at least means that there can be no dwelling on those disappointing efforts on Friday but Warrington are the side most likely to bounce back here.
