Championship star drafted in by Super League side for huge fixture

Hull KR have fallen out of the top six but face a tough trip this week.

The Robins head over to France to take on Catalans Dragons away for the second time this season.

Hull KR have been struck by injuries sadly recently and they lost to Salford Red Devils at the Magic Weekend at St James’ Park.

As the Robins came up short, Catalans meanwhile stormed to the top of the league by thumping Wigan Warriors as Tom Johnstone scored a hat-trick in Newcastle.

They will look to keep themselves top of the league and beat the Robins.

The team news is now in.

They are without Lachlan Coote, Jesse Sue and James Batchelor after the all suffered long term injuries at the Magic Weekend.

Batchelor sadly will be in a neck brace for the next eight weeks.

Meanwhile, Tom Opacic has headed home for the week for family reasons.

In the big news, Jack Walker is set for his Hull KR debut.

The former Leeds Rhinos star who joined Hull FC on loan last week has joined the Robins from the Bradford Bulls.

It was certainly timely with Coote injured.
