Hull KR v Wakefield: Predicted line-ups and late injury news

After disappointing derby defeats, Hull KR and Wakefield butt heads. Despite the fact both sides lost last week, the pair of them have lots of things to be positive about and should bring the best out of each other in this battle.

The Robins were still very impressive against the Black and Whites and on another day could have beaten their rivals. Thus, I believe Tony Smith will keep the side relatively similar to the one who went down in the derby. However, he’ll have to make one change following Matty Storton’s injury. It will, however, be as simple as Storton out and Dean Hadley back in.

As for Trinity, they’ll also be forced into at least one change. Max Jowitt is unavailable due to a shoulder problem so Ryan Hampshire will likely come into the side at fullback. Nonetheless, Trinity should also have Joe Westerman back in the fold so he’ll start as David Fifita drops to the bench. I’m tipping Liam Kay to remain on the bench however don’t be surprised to see Jordy Crowther replace him on the bench owing to his experience at nine.
