Leigh v Hull KR: 21-man squads, injury update and TV details

Leigh and Hull KR have both announced their 21-man squads for Sunday evening’s round 18 fixture at the Leigh Sports Village (KO 6:30pm).

The Centurions are still without a Super League win this season and with only eight games remaining, are likely to require wins in at least half of them to avoid relegation.

KR had been gaining momentum in the league before five COVID-19 postponements throughout June and July, which has seen them face Catalans twice and lose both times.

Their defeat to the Dragons on Monday saw them drop out of the play-off places, with Leeds moving above them.

The game will be available to watch live on Sky Sports Arena, with coverage starting from 6:00pm.

Dropping out are loanees Rob Butler and Jack Ashworth, both of whom are suspended, and Matty Wildie. There’s still no Ryan Brierley (eye), Lewis Tierney, Ben Reynolds (knee), BBlake Wallace (head) or Tyrone McCarthy.
