Challenge Cup Preview: Hull KR v Catalans Dragons

Hull KR‘s forward pack is boosted by the return of Dane Tilse to the front row, while Shaun Lunt is also in the 19-man party.

Youngster Aaron Ollett and on-loan Wigan utility forward Greg Burke make way for the two reinforcements.

Vincent Duport, Todd Carney, Willie Tonga and Michael Oldfield are all absent with injury from the Catalans squad, and those absentees were joined this week by Thomas Bosc and Jeff Lima, with the Dragons’ injury list continuing to grow.

Ian Henderson, Julian Bousquet, Zeb Taia and Stan Robin are included, however.

Hull KR (19-man squad): Blair, Boudebza, Cockayne, Cox, Dixon, Donaldson, Greenwood, Horne, Kelly, Larroyer, Lunt, McCarthy, Mantellato, Puletua, Salter, Sio, Tilse, Walker, Welham

Catalans (19-man squad): Escare, Pomeroy, Dureau, Elima, Henderson, Casty, Taia, Anderson, Mounis, Peliiser, Whitehead, Garcia, Bousquet, Maria, Baitieri, Robin, Yaha, Gigot, Inu


Catalans’ Michael Oldfield has scored tries in all four of his games against Hull KR (2-3-1-1).
