Preview

Stefan Ratchford makes a welcomed return for Warrington on Sunday as they look to bounce back from defeat against Catalans by beating Hull KR at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

After winning their opening two matches, the Wolves have slipped to consecutive defeats in the World Club Series as well as the south of France and Tony Smith’s side will seek to return to winning ways.

The Robins go in to the game full of confidence following their 22-20 victory over Wigan last weekend; overturning a 14-point deficit to defeat the Warriors.

Chris Welham replaces Ryan Bailey in the only change from last weekend for Hull KR who will still be without the services of James Donaldson and Australian front-rower Michael Weyman. Tyrone McCarthy is set to start against his former side.

Richie Myler is out for the Wolves with a hernia injury with Ratchford likely to fill in in the halves.

The Wolves beat the Robins 40-0 in pre-season. Warrington head coach Tony Smith is celebrating his seventh year in charge at the Halliwell Jones Stadium this week and a repeat result on Sunday would be his ideal way the mark the milestone.
