Preview

It is fair to say that Hull KR’s form against Wigan Warriors is nothing short of terrible, with the Warriors being undefeated in the last 14 meetings between the sides as KR have picked up a solitary point in that time.

Wigan’s biggest victory in this fixture was in 2013 as they travelled to Hull and inflicted an 84-6 hammering to the home side

You have to go back as far as 2009, when the DW was the JJB Stadium, to find the Robin’s last triumph in this fixture as they won 20-12.

The home side go into this game without a point in the league as they lost out late on to Leeds Rhinos 30-40 and were on the wrong end of a 44-24 score-line at Wakefield.

Wigan have three points to their name as Widnes Vikings fought back to earn a point in a 22-22 draw in the first game of the new season, however they bounced back to defeat Huddersfield 24-16 and will be looking to remain unbeaten.

STAT: The last time Hull KR won at home in this fixture was in Round 21 of the 2008 season when they were victorious 39-22.

Prediction

Hull KR have a strong squad in 2015 which looks to be taking some time to gel but given their poor record against Wigan they could be waiting another week for their first win of the season. My SuperBru prediction is Wigan by 10 points
