Hull Kingston Rovers vs Warrington Wolves Super League Round 22 Preview


A loss on Friday night would confirm Hull KR as the third team making up the bottom 4, currently 4 points adrift of 8th and relying on the next two weeks' worth of results going their way, as well as winning their own games.

April 14th saw Warrington extend their recent record against the Robins, winning 7 of their last 10, losing 2 and drawing 1, a convincing 40-26 victory over Tim Sheens' men. The Rovers looking to improve this poor record marginally.

Hull KR make two changes to last week's squad, Lee Jewitt and Junior Vaivai both returning to boost their side in the final push to save their season, however, they come at the cost of Tommy Lee and Justin Carney to the Robins. Two major losses to Warrington for this week's game, Goodwin and Westwood both missing, replaced by Morgan Smith and Pat Moran.

Hull Kingston Rovers: Adam Quinlan, Junior Vaivai, Danny McGuire, Nick Scruton, Shaun Lunt, Mose Masoe,  Maurice Blair, James Greenwood, Ben Kavanagh, Lee Jewitt, James Donaldson, Chris Clarkson, Robbie Mulhern, Liam Salter, Chris Atkin, Will Oakes, Danny Tickle, Elliot Wallis, Joel Tomkins.

Warrington Wolves: Sitaleki Akauola, Kevin Brown, Mitch Brown, Josh Charnley, Daryl Clark, Mike Cooper, Chris Hill, Jack Hughes, George King, Toby King, Tom Lineham, Harvey Livett, Pat Moran, Declan Patton, Joe Philbin, Ben Pomeroy, Stefan Ratchford, Tyrone Roberts, Morgan Smith.

I'm backing a Warrington victory in this one, while Hull KR have been impressive in recent weeks, I get the feeling that the Wolves may be a bridge too far in this instance. I'm backing a Wire victory by a margin of 7-12.
