Greg Burke misses out for the Robins with an ankle injury, so Aaron Ollett is included in the squad. There are also doubts about Liam Salter and Ben Cockayne, who sustained injuries in last week’s game against Widnes.
Prediction: The half-backs could be key tonight, and, in Campese and Kelly, Rovers have two halves who love the attention that a big occasion brings. I’m backing them to squeeze Rovers over the line to victory by a single point in what could be a thriller.
Hull KR (19-man squad): Blair, Boudebza, Campese, Cockayne, Dixon, Donaldson, Goulding, Green, Horne, Kelly, Larroyer, Lunt, Mantellato, McCarthy, Ollett, Salter, Sio, Walker, Welham.
St Helens (19-man squad): Makinson, Turner, Jones, Swift, Burns, Masoe, Roby, Amor, Vea, Wilkin, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Walmsley, Flanagan, Hohaia, Thompson, Richards, Dawson, Savelio, Ashworth.
Hull KR are undefeated in their last seven home meetings with St Helens, having won six and drawn one. Saints’ last away win against the Robins was 24-18 in the Quarter Finals of the Challenge Cup on 1 June, 2008.
