Team news: Hull KR v Warrington (Fri)

Banned Joel Tomkins is the only change across both squads ahead of Hull KR’s Challenge Cup clash with Warrington on Friday night.

Tomkins was handed a one-match ban for a dangerous contact in the Magic Weekend win over Salford.

His hearing prompted a controversial response from club owner Neil Hudgell, who criticised the inconsistency of the disciplinary process.

Young forward Owen Harrison comes in to take Tomkins’ place in Tim Sheens’ 19-man squad.

Hooker Tommy Lee (calf) and full-back Adam Quinlan (ACL) are both still sidelined through injury, but could make a return against Wigan on Sunday week.

Warrington coach Steve Price has named an unchanged squad following their win over Wigan at Anfield.
