Recent Form

The form of both sides heading into this fixture could not be more different. Three wins from four, Castleford are purring, residing in third in the Super League table. Hull KR, meanwhile, sit 11th with just one win from their opening four games.

Team Changes

For the journey to East Yorkshire, Tigers head coach Daryl Powell brings back Adam Milner in place of youngster Lewis Peachey after the former recovered from a hamstring injury.

KR boss Tony Smith, meanwhile, has had to deal with a number of injuries to key players as Matt Parcell is the next one added to the list of those sat in the stands. Jez Litten replaces him whilst Matty Gee comes in for the sidelined Harvey Livett. Ethan Ryan and Nick Rawsthorne have also been drafted into Smith’s 21-man squad.

Last time they met

The last time the Robins and the Tigers met, KR prevailed in Golden Point with a 27-26 victory. However, prior to that triiumph, Castleford had won three and drawn one at the KC Lightstream Stadium in their last four away fixtures as well as triumphing at home against the Robins in March of last season.

ERL Prediction

In front of their home support, the Robins are a force to be reckoned with. And, with forecasters predicting gale-force winds and biting conditions, it could give the game another edge to it. However, a free-flowing Castleford should be too much for an injury-hit Rovers side that hasn’t yet got going in 2020.

Castleford Tigers for the win.
