The biggest game in both sides’ most recent history, Hull KR-London promises to be an absolute cracker as both look to preserve their top-flight status for another year. A win for Hull KR would confirm that, though London need to win here and against Wakefield next weekend to avoid relegation.
Hull KR’s 24-6 victory over Catalans was only their second in five games, but London’s 36-10 defeat to Leeds was their sixth defeat in eight and Danny Ward’s side are now up against it to survive.
Hull KR boss Tony Smith has recalled Craig Hall, Mitch Garbutt and Matt Parcell to the 19-man squad as Jez Litten, Owen Harrison and Mikey Lewis drop out of the team that beat Catalans Dragons last weekend. London head coach Danny Ward makes just one change as Mark Ioane drops out of the squad with Daniel Hindmarsh coming in.
It could go either way on the day; if Hull KR play like they did at home against Wakefield then London will win. But, if the Robins mimic their superb performance in the south of France then East Hull will have a Super League side in 2020.
