Thursday’s action concludes with Hull KR taking on St Helens at the Totally Wicked Stadium. Saints looked impressive against Salford in the season opener last week, while the Robins produced a superb fightback before going down in golden-point to Catalans.

Rovers make a single change to their 21-man squad with Brad Takairangi absent through injury. Muizz Mustapha coming into the side and could make his debut for the club after signing on loan from Leeds in the off-season.

Saints are forced into two changes with Mark Percival and Agnatius Paasi both missing after picking up injuries last time out, allowing Tom Nisbet and Jake Wingfield to come into their 21-man squad.

Prediction

This week’s round of fixtures has been named the Mose Masoe round, in support of the Big Samoan, so it would be fitting if the Robins could upstage one of his former clubs on Thursday night. However, Saints looked extremely comfortable against Salford and are already back at the top of the Super League table and will be confident playing on their home turf making them clear favourites to take the two points.
