Catalans Dragons vs Hull KR: Kick-off time, TV channel and predicted line-ups

Two sides boosted by victory last week meet today in a repeat of one of last year’s Super League semi-finals.

The Dragons have laid down a marker in the last few weeks having beaten three of the biggest teams in the league on the back of a flawed first two rounds. As they emerge as the major threat to St Helens, they’ll be looking for a fifth win in a row.

Meanwhile, Hull KR have had a much more up and down start to the season losing three and winning twice. They need to generate some momentum to go with the attacking rugby they again seem to be adopting in 2022.

Kick-off time and TV channel

The game kicks off at 7:30pm UK time.

There will be no TV coverage of the game but highlights will be available on the Super League YouTube channel and BBC’s Super League Show.

Predicted line-ups

Catalans Dragons
The Dragons have a lot to be happy about going into the game. Not only have they won the last four but Sam Kasiano and Fouad Yaha are both back after missing last week through niggles. However, their return would see Arthur Romano and Joe Chan drop out which may be unfair. They have of course lost Jordan Dezaria to suspension but major signing Dylan Napa is back from a ban replacing Dezaria. Gil Dudson will likely return to the starting line up with Napa set for a spot on the bench. Mike McMeeken will remain at prop with Benjamin Jullien at second row alongside Matt Whitley.

Hull KR
Hull KR’s problems keep getting bigger. They’ve now lost Kane Linnett and Dean Hadley putting pressure on Tony Smith’s options in the back row. We could therefore see Jimmy Keinhorst move into the pack with Sam Wood moving to centre and Ethan Ryan moving onto the wing. Korbin Sims may also return on the bench to add some real firepower or else we’ll Greg Richards or Will Maher figure.
