THE TEAM NEWS
- Hull KR failed to continue their run of solid performances as they were dumped out of the Challenge Cup in their clash with Leeds Rhinos last week but they will have the opportunity to exact swift revenge here.
- Rovers will face the Rhinos for the second time in succession in this Super League contest as they go in search of just their third league win of the campaign but it will be difficult for them with their squad looking weaker than last week.
- Will Dagger, Matty Storton and Ethan Ryan have all joined the injury list so youngster Will Tate is expected to make his debut after he was named in the 21-man squad while Jimmy Keinhorst could also feature after Rovers ended his loan agreement with York City Knights.
21-man squad: Brierley, Ellis, Keinhorst, Garbutt, Gee, Harrison, Kenny-Dowall, Keyes, Lewis, Linnett, Litten, Livett, Maher, Minchella, Mulhern, Murray, Parcell, Peteru, Rawsthorne, Tate, Trout
Unavailable: Mose Masoe, Ben Crooks, Adam Quinlan, Jordan Abdull, Will Dagger, Matty Storton, Ethan Ryan
- Leeds Rhinos produced a dominant display as they blitzed Hull KR in the early stages of last week’s Challenge Cup contest and the Rhinos were able to kick-on as they sealed their spot in the last four.
- They will now turn their attention back to Super League as they attempt to maintain their spot in the top four but they have been hit by a handful of selection problems ahead of this clash.
- Brad Dwyer is out after contracting COVID-19 and the club have also been forced to stand down Konrad Hurrell and Bodene Thompson due to track and trace so youngsters Sam Walters and Jarrod O’Connor come into the squad.
21-man squad: L. Briscoe, T. Briscoe, Cuthbertson, Donaldson, Ferres, Gale, Handley, Holroyd, Leeming, Lui, Martin, McLelland, Mellor, Myler, Newman, O’Connor, Oledzki, Prior, Seumanufagai, L. Sutcliffe, Walters
Unavailable: Jack Walker, Dom Crosby, Stevie Ward, Cameron Smith, Konrad Hurrell, Alex Sutcliffe, Brad Dwyer, Bodene Thompson, Corey Hall
Leeds Rhinos thoroughly outplayed Hull KR to advance to the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup last week and the Rhinos will hope for similar success as they take on the same side in this Super League clash. Rovers started slowly and were unable to get back into the game as they failed to match their recent level of performance. They are still missing some key players and while Leeds are also short on numbers, the Rhinos look better adept to dealing with those issues which can see them win this by at least ten points.
