Predicted Line-ups

Hull KR
Hull KR’s major news is the potential return of Ben Crooks and a cup game may be the ideal time to re-introduce the winger allowing Sam Wood to move into the centres. Ethan Ryan and Jimmy Keinhorst are both options out wide as well. There may also be a return for Kane Linnett at second-row whilst matt Parcell could return having missed the trip to Catalans last week through illness.

Leigh Centurions
Leigh’s difficulties are in the forwards. With James Bell returning to St Helens and Mark Ioane injured following the win over Halifax, Adrian Lam’s options in the middle are limited maybe even forcing him to include outside backs on the bench rather than forwards. As for the rest of the team, it will likely remain the same following some impressive performances recently from the likes of Nene MacDonald and Caleb Aekins.
