Leigh v Hull KR: Predicted line-ups and late injury news

After pushing Hull KR close earlier this season, Leigh will look to put the Robins to the sword as the two teams wrap up the magic weekend. For Hull KR, it’s a must win game after their play-off push has stalled in recent games but it’ll be tougher than most expect.

For the first time this season, Leigh have options. Look at centre for example. The Centurions could name any of Junior Sa’u, Iain Thornley, Jack Logan or evening Sam Stone who debuted in the role a few weeks ago and he could start there again to provide more size. Liam Hood will come into the starting 13 at hooker whilst Leigh’s other NRL signing Jai Whitbread will start on the bench.

If Leigh have options, Tony Smith is running out of them especially in the pack forcing him to keep things the same down the middle. He does, however, have options in the backs and could move Brad Takairangi back into the halves but such is the attacking flair of Rowan Milnes and Mikey Lewis, I believe things will stay the same in that department too.
