Two of the top teams in Super League so far this season collide on Thursday tonight.
In a repeat of their Round One clash when Hull KR laid down a real marker by beating the fancied Wigan Warriors, the Robins and the Challenge Cup holders meet for the second time this season as the two jostle for position in the pursuit of Super League glory in 2023.
The Warriors have been fancied since before a ball was kicked to dethrone St Helens but Hull KR have emerged as the dark horses in 2023 so this week’s clash will be an interesting test of both side’s title credentials.
Now the team news is in for the fixture.
Hull KR are boosted by the return of Jesse Sue and Matt Parcell from suspension and a head injury respectively.
After his brief loan move to Castleford Tigers, Luis Johnson starts on the bench.
Time for battle! 💪👊#UpTheRobins🔴⚪️ pic.twitter.com/oGt2BsCIEQ

The Warriors have lost Ethan Havard, Willie Isa and Kai Pearce-Paul.
The game kicks off at 20:00 on Sky Sports.
