Having seen his St Helens side win six of their last seven Super League fixtures, head coach Nathan Brown has named an unchanged squad from the 38-12 victory over Hull FC.

Hull KR 19-man squad: Brown, Cox, Dobson, Griffin, Green, Hall, D. Hodgson, J. Hodgson, Horne, Lovegrove, Mika, Netherton, Paterson, Paea, Salter, Tuimavave, Walker, Welham, Withers.
