Hull KR vs Hull FC: 21-man squads, injury news, kick-off time & TV details

What better way to end the Magic Weekend than with arguably the biggest rivalry in Super League? The Hull derby has produced some brilliant moments over the years, and the quality of the two sides is arguably as similar as it has ever been.

The big change for Rovers will be the absence of Tony Smith, as he was sacked after their defeat to Toulouse. But with Danny McGuire taking charge, the change will not be too drastic, and morale will not have taken too much of a knock. The challenge is still a significant one, as regardless of form, games like this tend to bring out the best in a team.

Having been considered the ‘big brother’ of this rivalry for years, the black and whites would like to try to re-establish their dominance, especially given the result last time these sides met. Winless in the last four, and with lots of teams breathing down their neck, they need a win to avoid relinquishing their sixth spot.
