Match Pack: Round Two

Today marks the first away trip of the new Betfred Super League season as the Rhinos travel to take on Hull KR at Sewell Group Craven Park, KO 8pm, looking to make it back to back wins.

Ahead of the teams taking to the field, here is your snapshot preview of everything you need to know about tonight's teams:


21 man squad recap

Robins

In brief

- Willie Peters brings in two changes from the side that defeated Hull FC last Thursday with prop Matty Storton and winger Louis Senior offering alternative options in the forwards and back line.

- The squad is also largely unchanged from the pre-season friendly between the two sides, with 19 members of this week's team taking to the field at AMT Headingley.

- Ryan Hall, Corey Hall and Yusuf Aydin are the only members of Hull KR's squad who have previously played for Leeds.

- Joe Burgess is the only debutant in the team still waiting to make his Robins debut after his off-season move from Salford.

- Dean Hadley and Matt Parcell are absent this week. Hadley failed a HIA last week, whilst Parcell serves a one match penalty notice.


Rhinos

In brief

- Like their opposition, Rohan Smith has been able to name a similar team to the one that beat Salford last week; Mikolaj Oledzki being the only miss due to a shoulder injury.

- In his place, the Rhinos have been able to bring Tom Nicholson-Watton as an option at prop, who made his first Super League appearance at the end of 2023 against Castleford.

- A major inclusion is also James McDonnell after he missed out on round one.

- The Rhinos are also without David Fusitu'a, Derrell Olpherts, Tom Holroyd, Morgan Gannon and Max Simpson
