Super League preview: Huddersfield v Hull KR

Reigning League Leaders Shield winners Huddersfield will be looking to build on their impressive win over Wigan two weeks ago.

The Giants have not played since and their squad is almost at full strength for the visit of the Robins.

The only enforced change sees Jason Chan return in place of Larne Patrick, who dislocated his knee in the win over the Warriors.

Kruise Leeming and David Faiumu also come into the squad, replacing Shaun Lunt and Anthony Mullally (now on loan at Bradford).

Rovers are also forced into a change in their pack, with new signing Michael Weyman banned for two matches.

Another loss from the opening defeat to Leeds is long serving winger David Hodgson, who is ruled out for up to three months due to a knee injury.


Squad: Grix, McGillvary, Cudjoe, Wardle, Murphy, Brough, Robinson, Crabtree, Kopczak, Ferres, Chan, Bailey, Lawrence, Faiumu, Ta’ai, Wood, Broughton, Kaufusi, Leeming.

Last match: Won 24-8 away at Wigan

Hull KR

Squad: Burns, Carlile, Caro, Cockayne, Costigan, Cox, Eden, Green, Hall, J Hodgson, Keating, Langley, Larroyer, Lovegrove, Poore, Salter, A Walker, J Walker, Welham.

Last match: Lost 34-6 at home to Leeds
