Warrington Wolves vs Hull Kingston Rovers Super League Round 11 Preview


Warrington come into this fixture after a convincing win over Salford that now sees the Wolves climb up to third in the Super League table. The Robins will also be happy with their current standing in the table, last week's win over the Widnes Vikings sees them sit in 8th after 10 rounds, a position Tim Sheens will be quietly pleased with.

Warrington have claimed 2 wins in their last 3 meeting with the Robins, the two sides even shared a draw during the 2016 season. going as far back as the last 10 meetings between these two clubs, Warrington have claimed 6 wins in comparison to the Rovers 3 wins and as previously mentioned one game finished up as a draw. On an interesting side-note the Rovers last home away win over the Wolves came back on the 11th of April 2014 just over 4 years to the day.



The Wolves make just one change to the side than ran out winners at Salford in round 10, Mitch Brown replaces Toby King who is sidelined with a hamstring strain just days after signing an extension to his current contract. The Robins make three changes the side that beat Widnes last week, Hefernan ruled out with concussion is replaced by Liam Salter, Nick Scruton is named in the 19 as is Matty Marsh as the only three new faces to the squad.

Warrington Wolves: Sitaleki Akauola, Ryan Atkins, Kevin Brown, Mitch Brown, Josh Charnley, Daryl Clark, Mike Cooper, Dom Crosby, Ben Currie, Bryson Goodwin, Chris Hill, Jack Hughes, George King, Tom Lineham, Joe Philbin, Stefan Ratchford, Tyrone Roberts, Morgan Smith, Ben Westwood.

Hull Kingston Rovers:  Adam Quinlan, Thomas Minns, Ryan Shaw, Danny McGuire, Nick Scruton, Shaun Lunt, Mose Masoe, Maurice Blair, James Greenwood, Ben Kavanagh, James Donaldson, Tommy Lee, Matty Marsh, Robbie Mulhern, Liam Salter, Chris Atkin, Jordan Walne, Danny Tickle, Justin Carney

I'm predicting that Warrington take the win in this fixture, the combination of very good form coupled with a very strong historic record puts the Wolves in good stead coming into this matchup, I'm predicting Warrington by 7-12 points.
