Both Hull KR and Catalan Dragons will be looking to jump start their seasons after both teams have failed to register a single victory in the opening two games of the season.
Hull KR so far falling to a strong Wakefield Trinity side and narrow missing out on a shock win over Champions Leeds Rhino’s last week, while Catalan were shocking in their opening round defeat at the hands of Widnes Vikings but managed to regroup and push St Helens all the way before going down 21-12 in Perpignan last Saturday.
Hull Kr head coach Tim Sheens has been forced to make two chances to his side from last week, with Forward James Greenwood and Centre Andrew Heffernan both missing out after suffering Head knocks against Leeds. This means there could be a possible debut for Veteran forward Danny Tickle who only recently agreed terms with the Humberside outfit after being released from Leigh Centurions at the end of last season. Also in the 19 man squad is teenage fullback Will Oakes.
For the Visitors, head coach Steve McNamara, already has Sam Moa and Benjamin Jullen out suspended, while Michael Mcllorum joins Samisoni Langi and Louis Anderson on the injury tables. However, on a more positive note there is the return of Australian half back Luke Walsh and PNG skipper Paul Aiton both being named in the squad to play along with forward Lambert Belmas.
Catalans Dragons: Lucas Albert, Paul Aiton, Jason Baitieri, Lambert Belmas, Greg Bird, Julian Bousquet, Jodie Broughton, Rémi Casty, Alrix Da Costa, Vincent Duport, Benjamin Garcia, Thibaud Margalet, David Mead, Mickael Simon, Iain Thornley, Lewis Tierney, Luke Walsh, Brayden Wiliame, Fouad Yaha.
Hull KR: Chris Atkin, Maurice Blair, Justin Carney, Chris Clarkson, Lee Jewitt, Ben Kavanagh, Tommy Lee, Shaun Lunt, Matty Marsh, Mose Masoe, Danny McGuire, Thomas Minns, Robbie Mulhern, Will Oakes, Adam Quinlan, Liam Salter, Ryan Shaw, Danny Tickle, Jordan Walne
