Hull Kingston Rovers vs Widnes Vikings Super League Round 10 Preview

The Rovers welcome Widnes to the KCOM as they seek their first win in 4 games against an injury struck Widnes side. Widnes currently sit 2 points and 3 places ahead of Hull KR who are in 11th spot on the Super League ladder.

These sides met just the once in the 2017 campaign during the qualifiers, Hull KR taking a 12-6 victory in a very tight game at the KCOM. The Robins have won the majority of recent clashes, winning 3 of the last 5 and they have also not been beaten by the Vikings at the KCOM since the 4th of May 2014 in a tight 34-29 loss.

The Robins make 6 changes to the side that ran out losers against Wigan on Bank Holiday Monday, welcoming back McGuire, Lunt, Tickle, Hefernan, Mulhern and Walne are all a welcome sight for the Rovers faithful. The Vikings are without star signing Krisnan Inu after he broke his leg against Warrington, Keenan Brand is given a debut for Widnes.

Hull KR: Adam Quinlan, Thomas Minns, Andrew Heffernan, Ryan Shaw, Danny McGuire, Shaun Lunt, Mose Masoe, Maurice Blair, James Greenwood, Ben Kavanagh, James Donaldson, Chris Clarkson, Tommy Lee, Robbie Mulhern, Chris Atkin, Will Dagger, Jordan Walne, Danny Tickle, Justin Carney.

Widnes Vikings: Wellington Albert, Keanan Brand, Greg Burke, Ed Chamberlain, Danny Craven, Gil Dudson, Alex Gerrard, Rhys Hanbury, Aaron Heremaia, Chris Houston, Ryan Ince, Jordan Johnstone, MacGraff Leuluai, Stefan Marsh, Joe Mellor, Tom Olbison, Charly Runciman, Matt Whitley, Sam Wilde.


I'm going to back the Rovers for the win in this fixture, the team welcome back some experience and key players, while I'm about 90% sure this will be a close game, I'm also fairly confident the Robins have got what it takes to grab 2 points against what could be one of their bottom 4 rivals in weeks to come. I'm backing Hull KR by a margin of 0-6 points.
