THE TEAM NEWS

WAKEFIELD TRINITY

Head Coach: Chris Chester

Squad: Arona, Arundel, Batchelor, Brough, England, Fifita, Hampshire, Hirst, Horo, Johnstone, Jones-Bishop, King, Kirmond, Kopczak, Lyne, Miller, Pauli, Tupou, Wood

Unavailable: Tyler Randell, Craig Huby, Matty Ashurst

  • Wakefield produced their best performance of the season as they dominated Leeds at Headingley last week to claim a huge win and will now look for their third win on the bounce.

  • Tom Johnstone was the star against Leeds with the winger bagging a first half hat-trick for Wakefield to make it six tries for the season and he will be hoping to build on that total against Hull KR.

  • Head coach Chris Chester has made just one change to his 19-man squad that was named against Leeds with Matty Ashurst suffering an injury but Danny Kirmond returns after recovering from a bicep injury.

HULL KR

Head Coach: Tim Sheens

Squad: Addy, Atkin, Dagger, Drinkwater, Garbutt, Greenwood, Hall, Hauraki, Jewitt, Keinhorst, Lawler, Lee, Linnett, Masoe, McGuire, Oakes, Rooks, Shaw, Vaivai

Unavailable: Adam Quinlan, Shaun Lunt, Nick Scruton, Ben Crooks, Joel Tomkins, Ryan Lannon, Robbie Mulhern

  • Hull KR suffered another defeat as they went down to Castleford in a game that once again got away from them in the second half with a trip to a confident Wakefield side looking like a tough prospect.

  • Rovers should have influential prop Mitch Garbutt back this week after he missed out through illness against Castleford but fellow props Ryan Lannon and Robbie Mulhern are out having suffered injuries last week.

  • In a boost for the Robins, impressive youngster George Lawler is back in the mix this week whilst another youngster, Adam Rooks, also receives a call-up with the Red and Whites missing several players in the pack.

THE PREDICTION

Wakefield clicked into gear as they easily saw off Leeds last week and will be hoping to make it three wins on the spin as they host Hull KR. The Robins suffered a second consecutive defeat as they went down to Castleford last week and a third could be on the cards with Wakefield able to build on their last two efforts. Trinity began the season with a horror-show against London but have improved week-on-week since and they can win big again here.
