Wigan not underestimating Hull KR, insists Adrian Lam

Wigan coach Adrian Lam has urged his side to remain consistent as they look for a win over Hull KR that would take them to the top of the Super League table.

The Warriors have made an impressive start to the 2020 campaign, having won four from their first five fixtures.

Wigan host struggling Hull KR at the DW Stadium on Sunday, with the Robins looking to end a four-match losing streak.

Lam said: “We’ve had some of our toughest challenges against KR, like the away game last year when we won by a field goal.

“We understand they are not doing too well at the moment but I’m sure they will be revved up again this weekend and come here to prove a point.

“This week is about us really, trying not to get complacent, to be consistent not just in these first five weeks but for the full season.”

Hull KR will welcome back prop Robbie Mulhern from suspension but he will take the place of Mitch Garbutt, who spent a night in hospital with concussion after last week’s defeat by Castleford.

Rovers coach Tony Smith is poised to give a debut to winger Ethan Ryan in the absence of Ben Crooks with a neck injury, while George Lawler, Jordan Abdull and Harvey Livett are also back in action.

For Wigan, Ben Flower could make his first appearance of the season in place of Tony Clubb, who has suffered a shoulder knock. Centre Jake Bibby is set to return after missing last week’s game at Huddersfield due to a family bereavement.
