THE TEAM NEWS

HULL KR

  • Hull KR served up another poor display as they suffered a fourth consecutive loss in Super League with their trip to the south of France to face Catalans Dragons proving to be a fruitless one.
  • Rovers were thankful that the score did not end up even more out of hand with the Dragons noticeably taking their foot off the gas during the second half when the match was won as Hull KR went down to the 34-4 loss.
  • Rovers must improve on both sides of the ball if they are to end their disappointing run but they are boosted by the return of back-rower Elliot Minchella from suspension as well as Robbie Mulhern and Dean Hadley from injury.

21-man squad: Abdull, Brierley, Crooks, Ellis, Garbutt, Gee, Hadley, Hauraki, Kenny-Dowall, King, Lawler, Lewis, Linnett, Maher, Milnes, Minchella, Mulhern, Parcell, Rawsthorne, Storton, Trout

Unavailable: Mose Masoe, Adam Quinlan, Will Dagger, Ethan Ryan, Greg Minikin, Jez Litten, Daniel Murray, Harvey Livett

SALFORD RED DEVILS

  • Salford Red Devils continued their fine run of form as they made it five wins in a row in all competitions and they will be hoping to carry that momentum forward into this clash as they prepare for Saturday’s Challenge Cup final.
  • The Red Devils proved too good for Huddersfield Giants in a closely-fought tussle and whilst it is unlikely, they will still believe that they are in with a shot at making the end-of-season play-offs.
  • Unsurprisingly, head coach Ian Watson has opted to rotate his squad ahead of the weekend’s showpiece with the likes of Tui Lolohea, Dan Sarginson and Joey Lussick all handed a rest for this encounter.

21-man squad: Ackers, Ashall-Bott, Aspey, Atkin, Brown, Burke, Chamberlain, Gilmore, Flanagan, Ikahihifo, Inu, Jones, Kear, Lannon, McCarthy, Mossop, Ormondroyd, Pauli, L. Roberts, O. Roberts, Yates

Unavailable: Ken Sio, Josh Johnson, Niall Evalds

THE PREDICTION

Hull KR continue to battle it out at the bottom of the table with Wakefield Trinity as they bid to avoid the wooden spoon but neither side have been capable of finding a way to win of late. Rovers may now be handed a chance to end their poor run of form and create some breathing space as they take on a weakened Salford Red Devils outfit. They have one eye on the weekend’s Challenge Cup final with Leeds Rhinos and that will be reflected in their team selection. It will still be a competitive side for Salford and the expected rain could be a leveller in a contest that should produce under 46.5 points.
