Sheens eyeing cup surprise at Leigh

Hull KR boss Tom Sheens believes his team can spring a surprise against Leigh in the Challenge Cup on Saturday.

Rovers head to Leigh having lost just once in the Championship this season and Sheens is taking a strong squad to face the Super League outfit.

“If it was their strongest side and our strongest side, with both teams being fresh, then it might be more of indicator but I don’t think that’s the case this week,” he told

“It’s more about who can last the full 80 minutes and hang in there, because it’s not easy given the amount of football both teams have played over the past week or with the travel for us.

“Leigh have got a little bit of an advantage playing at home and we know that they make it difficult to win there, but on the flip side we’ve got a few more players who will be coming back in a bit fresher whereas they’re having to use the same players from their squad.”
