SL preview: Widnes v Hull KR (Sun)

With Jon Clarke absent for this weekend, Widnes head coach Denis Betts will have to decide who takes over the hooking duties for the clash with the Robins.

Lloyd White is a strong candidate for the job as he returns from a lengthy injury absence, while forwards Ben Cross and Gareth Hock are also fit again to boost Widnes’ pack.

Hull KR look likely to stick with the team that toppled Leeds last time out, a result that helped secure their place in the play-offs.

Rich Beaumont and George Griffin are vying to take the place of Jason Netherton, who is out with a hip injury but could be back for the regular season finale against London.

Widnes 19-man squad: Ah Van, Allen, K. Brown, Cross, Hanbury, Hulme, Hock, Isa, Joseph, Kavanagh, Lawton, Leuluai, Craven, Mellor, O’Carroll, Owens, Phelps, White, Winterstein.

Hull KR 19-man squad: Hall, Gleeson, D. Hodgson, Burns, Dobson, Tuimavave, J. Hodgson, Mika, Lovegrove, Withers, Walker, Salter, Caro, Cox, Beaumont, Green, Griffin, Brown, Ollett.
