The Vikings were beaten 36-0 in treacherous conditions last season, and return with a spring in their step, following a win against London and an encouraging performance last week against St Helens.
Rovers, meanwhile, are one of only two clubs yet to record a point this season, after they were beaten by Wakefield in front of the SKY TV cameras last week.
Hull KR have won their last six meetings with Widnes, with the Vikings’ last victory being a 28-0 Northern Ford Premiership home success on 22 April, 2001.
Widnes are seeking their first away win against Hull KR in the summer era. They were last victorious at Craven Park on 28 November, 1993 – 32-10 in the Stones Bitter Championship. The Robins have won seven consecutive home matches with the Vikings since then.
