Hull KR and Catalans Dragons go head to head on Thursday as both sides are looking to get off the mark.

The Rovers started the season off with a 24-6 defeat at home to Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, and then pushed champions Leeds Rhinos all the way but falling to a 20-11 defeat at Elland Road.

While the Dragons started the season with a 40-12 defeat at Widnes Vikings and then a 21-12 defeat at home to St Helens.

Andrew Heffernan and James Greenwood miss out after failing to recover from knocks. They have been replaced by Danny Tickle and Will Oakes.

The Dragons are without Benjamin Jullien who has been given a one match ban for dangerous contact. Michael McIllorum and Louis Anderson are also ruled out with injury. Antoni Maria also drops out.

Fouad Yaha, Luke Walsh and Paul Aiton all return with youngster Lambert Belmas a late addition to the squad after Jullien’s appeal was dismissed.

The match will kick off at 7.35 and the referee will be James Child.
