SL Preview: Hull KR v Warrington

Hull KR welcome Warrington to the KC Lightstream Stadium without their talismanic half-back Terry Campese, who has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Nevertheless, they beat Widnes at home last weekend without the Italian international, and will once again be looking to Maurice Blair to fill Campese’s boots in the halves.

James Green misses out for Rovers with a rib injury, while winger Josh Matellato has a neck problem which will require a late fitness check.

Anthony England begins his ban for spitting at Danny Brough, but the Warrington pack is boosted by the return of Ben Westwood from suspension.

Ben Currie, who signed a new deal at the club this week, and Gareth O’Brien are missing for Warrington through injury.

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

Warrington (19-man squad):
Asotasi, Atkins, Bridge, Clark, Dwyer, England, Harrison, Hill, G King, T King, Laithwaite, Monaghan, Myler, Ormsby, Patton, Penny, Philbin, Ratchford, Sims, Westwood.
