Super League preview: St Helens v Hull KR

In-form St Helens have been strengthened even further ahead of the visit of Hull KR, as giant prop Mose Masoe returns from injury.

The Samoan is set for his Super League debut following ankle surgery, and he is joined in the matchday squad by stand-off Gary Wheeler, who has recovered from a dead leg.

Head coach Nathan Brown has a selection headache on his hands as the league leaders look to continue their 100% start.

Rovers head coach Craig Sandercock has no such luxury, and he is without leading try scorer Omari Caro and prop Jonny Walker due to injury.

The away side are boosted by the return of experienced Australian duo Justin Poore and Mick Weyman, who have been missing through suspension.
