Key player returns for Hull KR as Danny McGuire makes surprise halfback decision meanwhile Wakefield give two debut

The teams are in for today’s huge clash between Hull KR and Wakefield Trinity.

The Robins are looking to pick up a win to bounce back after derby day defeat to Hull FC in controversial fashion at the Magic Weekend. A win here is vital for their play-off hopes.

Meanwhile, Wakefield now found themselves bottom of the league after defeat to Toulouse last week and the French side’s controlled 20-6 win over Leeds last night.

As Trinity look to lift themselves off the bottom and give their season a much needed boost, Willie Poching has named two debutants in new signings Jorge Taufua and Josh Bowden. Taufua replaces another new arrival in Kyle Evans on the wing whilst former Hull FC man Bowden starts on the bench.

Mason Lino returns from injury in the halves but there is still no place for Lee Gaskell despite his return from injury.

As for Hull KR Danny McGuire has curiously left Rowan Milnes out with Will Dagger instead partnering Mikey Lewis in the halves. Presumably Milnes must be injured with he and Lewis the last two natural halfbacks at the club with Jordan Abdull injured and Dagger more of a fullback.

Milnes was named in the original 21-man squad.

Hull KR are boosted by the return of Ryan Hall on the wing. McGuire has totally changed his wingers with Ethan Ryan also returning on the right flank with Ben Crooks dropped and Sam Wood at centre.

There’s a debut for St Helens loanee Sam Royale on the bench.

Perhaps Milnes was paying for his defensive mistakes at Newcastle
