Super League transfer target set to play against interested club

The Magic Weekend kick starts with one of the games of the weekend as two of the current top six collide at St James’ Park.

Willie Peters side are looking to get back on track after their defeat to Wigan Warriors last weekend in a heart breaking defeat in Golden Boot.

The Robins have been doing it tough with injuries lately but are still in the top four.

Meanwhile, Salford Red Devils have shown a new dimension this season competing in the gritty clashes as well as showing the attacking class they demonstrated last season.

It all makes for a hugely exciting game this weekend.

The team news is now in.

The Robins have of course lost Ethan Ryan to a broken jaw for a number of weeks – up to 10 and likely at least eight.

Lachlan Coote’s return is therefore very timely.

George King is back in the mix as well as he returns from injury.

There is still no Jordan Abdull.

As for Salford Red Devils, Paul Rowley has included Tyler Dupree in his squad.

He scored last week after making a transfer request to leave to Hull KR after two bids were turned down by the Robins.

Andy Ackers and Shane Wright are absent through injuries.
