Wakefield v Hull KR: 21-man squads and injury update

Wakefield and Hull KR have both announced their 21-man squads for Sunday afternoon’s round seven clash at the Mobile Rocket Stadium (KO 3:00pm).

Trinity are still win-less in 2021 but came as close as they have all season on Monday, pushing Leeds all the way before losing out to a golden point penalty goal.

Rovers, meanwhile, picked up their third victory of the season against Castleford, with Jordan Abdull’s late try spoiling the returning Tigers’ fans’ party to claim a 26-22 victory.

Wakefield Trinity

Captain Jacob Miller is back for Trinity after missing the last few weeks with a knee injury. He is one of three changes made by Chris Chester with Bill Tupou included alongside Yusuf Aydin, who returns following a loan spell at York. They replace Kyle Wood, Innes Senior and Jordy Crowther (foot), while Ryan Hampshire (jaw), Tom Johnstone (head), Jack Croft (ACL), Alex Walker (back) and Josh Wood (jaw) remain on the sidelines.
