Toronto Wolfpack vs Hull Kingston Rovers The Qualifiers Round 2 Preview


A historic game is set to take place at Lamport stadium, the Robins becoming the first Super League team to ever make the trip across to Toronto, the Rovers will hope that's where the novelty ends for this fixture and avoiding become the first Super League team to lose in Canada.

There are no previous meetings between these two sides so we are forced to look at form, Toronto saw off a competitive Halifax side last week, whereas the Robins lost to Salford which puts them in a tricky spot, a loss to Toronto on Saturday evening would leave them with 5 games to avoid the drop for the second time in 3 seasons.

The Robins make 3 changes, 2 forced due to injury, the other tactical. Mose Masoe returns from suspension and comes back into the 19, Todd Carney out through injury and Will Oakes loses his spot to Joe Wardill.

Toronto Wolfpack: No Team News Available

Hull Kingston Rovers: Adam Quinlan, Junior Vaivai, Danny McGuire, Nick Scruton, Shaun Lunt, Mose Masoe, James Greenwood, Ben Kavanagh, James Donaldson, Chris Clarkson, Tommy Lee, Robbie Mulhern, Liam Salter, Chris Atkin, Joe Wardill, Danny Tickle, Joel Tomkins, Craig Hall, Ben Crooks.

This is a really difficult game to call, Toronto have the home crowd on their side, the momentum of being the challenger and the underdog, they could very likely use that to their advantage and up the stakes, their discipline will decide the outcome of this game. The Rovers know full well the implications of a loss here, they don't need reminding of what a loss to a Championship side can do to your Super League survival hopes.
