Probably the toughest game to call in round one comes at Craven Park, as Hull KR host Catalan.
The Dragons enjoyed two excellent seasons under the stewardship of Trent Robinson, who has now left for Sydney Roosters and been replaced by Laurent Frayssinous.
For Rovers, they missed out on the play-off party in Craig Sandercock’s first year in charge, but they have recruited some good players from these shores and abroad, and will be looking to restore the place in the top eight.
Home advantage might just give Rovers the edge in this one, although they have lost their last four games against Catalan, including three last year.
Hull KR 19-man squad: Salter, Caro, Lovegrove, Horne, Walker, Paterson, Mika, Tuimavave, Cox, Griffin, J Hodgson, Paea, Carlile, Hall, Dobson, Eden, Latus, Withers, D Hodgson.
Catalan 19-man squad: Webb, Blanch, Pryce, Taia, Bosc, Elima, Henderson, Casty, Menzies, Anderson, Mounis, Barthau, Pelissier, Millard, Pala, Bousquet, Fakir, Baitieri, Duport.
Prediction: Tough to call, but home advantage gives Rovers the edge – Rovers win.
The Dragons have also won on their last three visits to Craven Park – with Hull KR‘s last home victory against the Catalans coming 24-6 on 6 June, 2010.
