Injury Troubles
Sunday afternoon sees the Rhinos take on the Robins for the first time in 2013, the Rhinos on a seven game unbeaten run and Hull KR wearing the smiles of victory over St Helens in last weekends Challenge Cup fourth round.

It's not been all plain sailing for KR in 2013 with their financial backers announcing that this would be their last season of bankrolling the club, and having suffered their record Superleague defeat by 84-6 at the hands of the Wigan Warriors just four weeks ago.

The form book says Leeds, but KR like nothing better than to get a win against the Champions.

We preview the game, read more here...

Hull KR have won two out of the last three meetings at Craven Park despite the Rhinos leading 9-4 in regular season Superleague wins. Last year the Rhinos did the double but it was as close as it could possibly be in East Hull as we scrambled a 25-24 win. Back in 2011 we were humiliated by a well drilled side who won by 28-38 and in 2010 we lost again by the margin of 10-17 with a weak and young looking side.

Richard Moore and Joe Vickery have both missed out on selection as Brian McDermott names an unchanged ninteen which includes youngsters Singleton and Sutcliffe. Ryan Bailey is serving the last match of his four game suspension and will be back in contention for next weeks game against Bradford. I'd expect that the seventeen that pull on the match jerseys will be the same as last weeks cup side against the Tigers with the two youngsters missing out. This is not the time of the season for surprise team selections, especially with a tough league game being followed by a trip to the Giants in the cup.

The full nineteen is; Hardaker, Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, McShane, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Ward, Delaney, Kirke, Clarkson, Achurch, Singleton, and Sutcliffe.

Hull KR signed Giants winger Luke George on loan during the week and he has made Sandercocks nineteen man squad for Sundays game. Sean Gleeson, Kris Welham and Graeme Horne are all currently unavailable weakening the home side, but a team who overcame Saints in the cup, no matter how second rate that Saints team currently is, should not be underestimated.

Sandercock's ninteen is; Salter, Caro, Walker, Green, Griffin, Paterson, Mika, Burns, George, Withers, Hall, Paea, Carlile, Lovegrove, Dobson, D Hodgson, Eden, Beaumont,and J Hodgson. Prediction
KR 10 28 Rhinos

This is a game which should be there for the taking as we look to keep on terms with the top sides and pounce when we get to play our games in hand. With the Catalans playing the Giants this week it looks like one of the sides around will not get points, fingers crossed it's the Giants.

The bookies think it is going to be a close one and have given the home side a six point start on the coupon, I hope that we can improve on that.

The forecast for Sunday looks as though it is going to be pretty chilly with a chance of some rain the the afternoon, that should be fun then!

Fingers crossed that the the Rhinos can make it eight on the bounce and take this one with some gusto.

Enjoy the game.
