Warrington Wolves vs Hull Kingston Rovers

The Warrington Wolves welcome Hull Kingston Rovers to the Halliwell Jones Stadium for this round 2 match up from the 2019 Super League season.

Both teams made the perfect start to the new season with wins in the opening round but whilst the Wolves looked comfortable throughout their match up with the Rhinos, the Robins cam from behind to win the Hull derby in the last minute.

Warrington are amongst the favourites for the title this season and they will be grateful that then likes of Blake Austin impressed on their debut but if they are to be true title contenders, these are the sort of games that they not only should be winning, but they should be winning with room to spare.

For the Robins, who are expected to be in the battle to avoid relegation, this is the sort of game that a shock win could give them a huge confidence boost that sees them have a successful season and perhaps even push onto the top 6.

Form

Warrington comfortably defeated the Leeds Rhinos at home in round 1 whilst Hull KR just edged the Hull Derby.

Team News

Warrington make 2 changes to their squad with Sitaleki Akauola and Harvey Livett replacing the suspended duo of Ben Westwood and Toby King.

Hull KR make just the 1 change as Ryan Shaw replaces potential debutant Ryan Lannon.

Prediction

On the face of it this should be a comfortable win for the home side as they are a team who challenge on all fronts last season whilst the Robins were in a relegation scrap. The Wolves also opened the season with a good win whilst Hull KR suffered a last minute win in a game they never really impressed in.

With that said, the Robins did show great heart and a never say die attitude that if they can continue to show, will make them a difficult beat for any team.

Warrington have home advantage, have much more quality and have all of the momentum, so whilst we expect Hull KR to make it tough in the opening half, all of that should shine through in the 2nd half to allow the Wolves to pull out to an ultimately comfortable win.
