Ryan Hall has been forced to miss Hull KR’s Challenge Cup semi-final clash with Wigan Warriors due a calf injury.

BBC sideline reporter Damian Johnson confirmed the injury moments into the clash at Headingley Stadium, with the veteran winger initially named in the starting lineup by head coach Wille Peters.

Having been named on the bench, half-back Mikey Lewis has been promoted to full-back, with Ethan Ryan shifted to the wing.

Forward Yusuf Aydin moves to the bench, despite Jimmy Keinhorst being named as 18th man ahead of the game.

Johnson reported that Hall suffered the calf injury during last week’s 19-18 drop-goal victory over Leeds Rhinos, and was given up until kick-off to make the game.

However, the 35-year-old England international pulled out of the clash during the warm-up.

Germany international Brad Schneider has been named to start in the halves alongside Rowan Milnes.

The 22-year-old recruit from Canberra Raiders kicked the winning drop goal over Rohan Smith’s Leeds last week in Super League on his debut.
