Rovers looking carry on against Red Devils


Hull KR will be looking to carry on where they left off last week against Catalans Dragons with a win against Salford Red Devils away from home on Friday.

That was their first win of the season after a disappointing 24-6 defeat at home to Wakefield Trinity and a 20-11 defeat away to Leeds Rhinos.

They make three changes to that squad as Danny McGuire misses out with an injury, Chris Clarkson and Will Oakes also make way for Andrew Heffernan, Nick Scruton and James Greenwood.

As for Salford, they have had a rather disappointing start to the season after a 40-12 home defeat to Wigan Warriors and then a 14-12 defeat at home to Wakefield.

They have made two changes to that squad as Mark Flanagan and Greg Johnson have both recovered from injury and come in for George Griffin and Derrell Olpherts.

The match is a repeat of the 2016 Million Pound Game where a Gareth O’Brien drop goal in Golden Point Extra Time kept the Red Devils in the Super League and relegated Rovers.

The match will kick off at 8pm and the referee will be James Child.
