Hull KR and Salford Red Devils are both dreaming of Wembley.
Both have played their in the last decade but neither had the experience they wanted.
In 2015, Hull KR suffered a record breaking defeat to a Leeds Rhinos side storming to the treble. The Robins conceded 50 points that day and were nilled.
As for Salford, they gave a much better account of themselves against the same opposition in 2020 but sadly for their fans due to the pandemic they didn’t get to sample the Wembley atmosphere.
Now they both stand one step away from the semi-finals. Hull KR played in the semis last year and will want to go one better but they are doing it tough with injuries.
At least this week they welcome back key playmaker Rowan Milnes, the ideal replacement for Jordan Abdull.
They also have Tom Opacic back after he went home last week.
Tanguy Zenon is also set to debut after joining on loan from Catalans Dragons.

As for Salford, Paul Rowley has again named a strong squad.
They are still missing hooker Andy Ackers and forward Shane Wright due to injury.
The likes of Ken Sio and Tim Lafai are getting stronger week by week after their absence through injury.
