Wolves travel to Rovers hoping for second straight semi final

Warrington Wolves travel to Hull KR looking to reach a second straight Challenge Cup Quarter Final.

The Wolves come into the game off the back of a stunning 26-14 win over Wigan Warriors at Magic Weekend.

Meanwhile, Rovers won 22-20 against Salford Red Devils on Day Two at Magic Weekend.

The home side have made one enforced change with Joel Tomkins’ suspension being upheld. He has been replaced by Owen Harrison.

The Wolves meanwhile have named an unchanged squad from Magic Weekend.

Key Battle

Danny McGuire vs. Blake Austin- Experience vs. skill. On the one hand, you have the experience of McGuire, who has won eight Super League titles and was the star of a Leeds Rhinos team for many years. Then you have the sheer skill of Man of Steel contender Blake Austin. The halfback came to the Super League with immeasurable experience in the NRL and has brought a brilliant amount of skill and talent and has been a lynchpin as the Wolves look to earn a first Super League title. Both players are set to hold the key in unlocking both defences.

Prediction

To be honest, I cant see a scenario where the Rovers can beat Warrington. I think the Wolves will just have too much for them. Wolves by 16.
