Toulouse Olympique vs Hull Kingston Rovers The Qualifiers Round 6 Preview

If there is one thing the Rovers didn't need to be dealing with in such a crucial stage of the season, it's a Toulouse outfit that were the victims of a robbery last week, the French outfit denied the win over Toronto by a try that should not of been, no doubt the Robins will be on the receiving end of a lot of that frustration on Saturday.

Toulouse and Hull KR met twice in the 2017 season, the French outfit coming up with the win on both occasions, something that will no doubt put the Super League outfit on high alert for this fixture, 31-30 in July and 14-6 in the early rounds.

Toulouse make two changes to last week's squad, Mourad Kriouache and Paul Seguier replace Sam Rapira and Tony Maurel as two enforced changes due to injury. Hull KR make one change to the side that beat London last week, Mose Masoe taking the place of the injured Maurice Blair, Danny McGuire is named in the 19 despite pulling out of the squad late last week.

Toulouse Olympique: Bastien ADER, William BARTHAU, Clément BOYER, Joe BRETHERTON, Chris CENTRONE, Rhys CURRAN, Johnathon FORD, Tyla HEPI, Mark KHEIRALLAH, Mourad KRIOUACHE, Paul MARCON, Gavin MARGUERITE, Anthony MARION, Constantine MIKA, Sébastien PLANAS, Maxime PUECH, Stanislas ROBIN, Justin SANGARÉ, Paul SÉGUIER.

Hull Kingston Rovers: 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, Will Oakes, Danny Tickle, Joel Tomkins, Todd Carney, Craig Hall, Ben Crooks.

This is honestly one of the hardest games I've ever had to call, Toulouse previous wins over the Robins indicate the fact that they are capable of taking the two competition points out of this game. I'm going to give this in favour of Toulouse by a try or less.
