St Helens v Hull KR Preview
St Helens welcome Hull Kingston Rovers from one side of the M62 to other for this Merseyside vs East Yorkshire clash that will have a huge say on things at both ends of the table.
The Saints of St Helens are a club built for success and who have everything they need to deliver on that and thankfully for their supporters, that is something that they do time and time again.
Unfortunately for fans of Hull KR they have become somewhat of a yo-yo team who are too good for the Championship but who continue to struggle in the Super League.
On paper the Robins are a team with lots of potential and they certainly have the quality to shock a team such as St Helens but the Saints are not just good on paper, they are good where it really counts and that is out on the field.
In the league, Saints have won 4 of their last 5 matches including each of their last 3.
Hull KR have know won each of their last 3 as well but they do come into the game on the back of no matches for a couple of weeks whilst Saints did of course play the cup final last weekend.
The Totally Wicked Stadium is host for this game and as one of the most modern rugby stadiums in the country, it is a fitting home for a club the stature of Saints.
With a good mix of seating, standing and corporate, the ground creates a strong atmosphere for most matches but especially when a big backing for the opposition are in town.
The Robins fans normally travel well so the players should have they need to give us a great match up and one with the potential for a huge shock.
St Helens v Hull KR Prediction
Here at RLBet, we give out predict for who we think will win and also what we think the winning margin will be but don’t forget that the unpredictable nature of the Super League, this should only be seen as our view.
Although Saints will be distracted in the cup up to this one after last weekend and with Hull KR playing some great rugby as of late, it is difficult to see anything other than a win for the reigning champions as they look to re-focus on the league and to try and catch up with Catalans at the top.
