Hull Kingston Rovers Team News
Hull KR suffered back-to-back defeats to Huddersfield Giants last week, and their dismal first-half performance will have been of particular concern to head coach Tony Smith.
Rovers were 16-0 down at halftime, and while they recovered in the second half, the damage had already been done, and in order to get off to a good start this season, they will have to contend with the absence of Lachlan Coote once more.
