THE TEAM NEWS

HULL KR

Head Coach: Tony Smith

Squad: Addy, Atkin, Crooks, Dagger, Drinkwater, Garbutt, Hadley, Hall, Hauraki, Keinhorst, Linnett, Masoe, McGuire, Mulhern, Murray, Parcell, Shaw, Tomkins, Trout

Unavailable: James Greenwood, George Lawler, Adam Quinlan

  • Hull KR secured a huge win in their quest to stay up as they put in a solid performance to defeat Catalans in the south of France and that effort will give them plenty of confidence ahead of this clash with relegation rivals London.
  • Rovers are boosted by the return of on-loan hooker Matt Parcell for this vital game after overcoming a shoulder injury whilst Mitch Garbutt and Craig Hall are also added to the 19-man squad after sitting out with slight knocks last week.
  • On-loan Hull FC hooker Jez Litten is dropped along with youngsters Owen Harrison and Mikey Lewis with Rovers boasting a strong squad for this game in which they know that a win would mean they retain their Super League status.

LONDON BRONCOS

Head Coach: Danny Ward

Squad: Abdull, Armitage, Battye, Butler, Cunningham, Dixon, Fozard, Gee, Hindmarsh, Kear, Krasniqi, Lamb, Lovell, Mason, Morgan, Pitts, Walker, Williams, Yates

Unavailable: Eloi Pelissier, Morgan Smith, Greg Richards, Matty Fleming, Sadiq Adebiyi

  • London were not good enough to live with Leeds last week and are now the short-priced favourites to be relegated to the Championship with this a must-win for the Broncos or they will be effectively down because of their significantly inferior points difference.
  • The Broncos could name an unchanged team this week although recent recruit Guy Armitage will be pushing for a recall to the 17 whilst Daniel Hindmarsh will also be hopeful of a chance after replacing Mark Ioane in the 19-man squad.
  • The rest of the London squad remains the same as last week other than that one change with head coach Danny Ward confident his players can pull a performance out of the bag to ensure they remain in with a chance of staying up for the final round of fixtures.

THE PREDICTION

London must win this game to have any chance of staying up as they fell two points behind the pack last week. They head to Hull KR who are still in danger but Rovers will be safe with a victory and they can effectively seal London's fate here with the home team capable of claiming the win. Rovers have been poor for the majority of the season but will be buoyed by last week’s performance against Catalans as well as the return of three key players.
