Rhinos Trio Return to Face Robins

Can you hear the alarm bells ringing?

Hull KR, fresh off the back over a massive win over the league leaders, travel to Headingley to take on a Rhinos side still licking their wounds after a mauling at the hands of the Wildcats in round nineteen.

The good news is that the Rhinos could be welcoming back Sinfield, Ablett and Burrow after injury lay-offs. We'll be hoping to avoid a repeat of the last visit by KR in August 2013 when they won by 12-16.

We preview the game, read more here...

Caretaker Robins coach Chris Chester has been able to call on the services of Neville Costigan, returning from injury, and Liam Salter as he looks to build on last weeks stunning 40-10 win over the Saints.

He names his nineteen man squad as; Burns, Carlile, Caro, Costigan, Eden, Green, Hall, D Hodgson, J Hodgson, Horne, Keating, Larroyer, Lovegrove, Netherton, Ollett, Salter, A Walker, Welham, and Weyman.

Rhinos supporters will be very relieved to see the names; Sinfield, Burrow and Ablett back in the nineteen man squad ahead of tomorrow nights clash. We've defintely missed the skippers magic boot in the last couple of weeks, stumbling to a narrow win over the Dragons and then losing out in a last gasp loss against a determined Wakefield Wildcats. Rob Burrow also makes a welcome return with his first return to action since breaking his collar bone against the Saints back in April, we've missed the little man and he adds a whole new dimension to our game.

Big Mac names his squad of nineteen as; Jones-Bishop, Watkins, Moon, Hall ,McGuire, Burrow, Aiton, Peacock, Ablett, Sinfield, S Ward, Delaney, Bailey, Achurch, T Briscoe, Sutcliffe, Minchella, Mulhern and Walters. This is the last game of suspension for Zak Hardaker and he's expected to return for the televised visit of the Tigers next Thursday, when hopefully he'll keep his trap shut.

The Rhinos won the away game against Hull KR earlier in the season by a comprehensive 34-6 margin, thanks to Tom Birscoe hat-trick. The last time the two sides met at Headinley saw the honours taken by the Robins as they secured a 12-16 win last August.

The Rhinos need to use the return of three major first-teamers to tighten up their defence to early season levels and Friday night is an ideal opportunity to do that. Another lax defensive performance and we could easily drop the two points again and plunge our top spot hopes into disarray. Prediction
Rhinos 28 10 KR

This should be a game that the Rhinos win, but the Robins under Chris Chester are an unknown quantity. If they get a run on then we could be in real trouble as they have the class and quality to snatch the points. The bookies are fancying the Rhinos and have given the visitors a sixteen point start on the coupon, I think and hope that they won't be too far away.

The weather forecast for tomorrow looks very nice with temperatures up at around twenty degrees and although there will be plenty of sunshin during the day it might be a little overcast by kick-off.

It has all the potential to be a great match, travel safe and enjoy the game.
