Hull KR vs St Helens Super League Round 7 Preview


Hull KR host the league leaders St Helens, as they look to recover from last week's shock defeat to the Leeds Rhinos, but I doubt that has knocked their confidence too much.

The Saints have won the majority of recent meetings between these two clubs, the Rovers last victory against St Helens coming on the 27th of April 2015,it is worth noting that these two sides did not meet in the 2017 season. This equates to 4 out of 5 wins for Saints in previous meetings.

Saints have confirmed that they will be without Alex Walmsley after he required surgery for a cracked neck bone, however, it's not all bad news as Morgan Knowles returns from a 4 game suspension and is named in the 19. Hull KR are forced to make one change from their victorious side last week, Nick Scruton ruled out through injury, he's replaced by Will Dagger.

Hull Kingston Rovers - Adam Quinlan, Thomas Minns, Andrew Heffernan, Ryan Shaw, Danny McGuire, Mose Masoe, Maurice Blair, James Greenwood, Ben Kavanagh, James Donaldson, Chris Clarkson, George Lawler, Tommy Lee, Robert Mulhern, Liam Salter, Christopher Atkin, Will Dagger, Jordan Walne, Justin Carney

St Helens - Jonny Lomax, Tommy Makinson, Mark Percival, Adam Swift, Theo Fages, Matty Smith, James Roby, Kyle Amor, Zeb Taia, Jon Wilkin, Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Luke Douglas, Morgan Knowles, Luke Thompson, Dom Peyroux, Danny Richardson, Regan Grace, Matty Lees, Ben Barba.

I've got to back Saints to bounce back in this game, although the Robins played very well last week, it's going to take something special to put Saints to just their second loss of the season. I'm backing St Helens to win this fixture by 12+ points.
