Wigan Warriors vs Hull KR: Kick-off time, TV channel and predicted line-ups

This is Wigan’s biggest test of the season. After a shock defeat to Leeds in which they were not only beaten but dominated by an injury hit Leeds side, can they bounce back?

They’ll be up against a resurgent Hull KR side who have turned a corner recently with a pair of good wins which truly has them in the play-off mix.

A win here against the Warriors would give their hopes of finals rugby a massive boost.

Kick-off time and TV channel

The game kicks off at 20:00.

Coverage starts at 19:30 on Sky Sports Arena.

Predicted Line-ups

Wigan Warriors
The Warriors won’t be forced into any changes but could be boosted by the return of Patrick Mago who could replace Oliver Partington on the bench in the only change. That said, don’t be surprised to see Matt Peet make further changes. He may even move Jai Field into the halves and Bevan French to fullback as he did at the end of the game last week.

Hull KR
It’s going to be a very tough team for Danny McGuire to pick. The first person he’ll have to replace is former teammate Ryan Hall which will see Will Tate start. Then in the halves Rowan Milnes will replace Mikey Lewis. Will Maher will also come into the starting 17 in place of Korbin Sims whilst Elliot Minchella may have to vacate his usual 13 spot to take up a position in the backrow with two hookers starting in Matt Parcell and Jez Litten with the latter at 13. Young forward Connor Moore would then come onto the bench alongside Zach Fishwick and fullback Phoenix Laulu-Togaga’e. Greg Richards will complete the bench.
