Wigan Warriors v Hull KR

The Wigan Warriors welcome Hull Kingston Rovers to the DW Stadium for this round 25 match up from the 2019 Rugby Super League season in a match that will have a huge say on both the relegation scrap and the play-off race.

The Warriors go into the round in 4th place where they are just 4 points behind Warrington in 2nd but they are just 2 points ahead of Castleford in 7th which just highlights the importance of the win for the home side.

The 2 points on offer could also prove invaluable for Hull KR as they start the round in 11th place where they are just 2 points ahead of London who prop up the table but they are also level on points with Leeds, Wakefield and Huddersfield.


Wigan are one of the form teams in the Super League with 5 wins from their last 6 matches.

Hull KR have won 3 of their last 6 matches including a win over Cas last time out.

Team News

Bevan French is set to make his Wigan debut after been named by Wigan alongside Ben Flower and Joe Greenwood. The injured Sean O’Loughlin as well as Jake Shorrocks and Chris Hankinson drop out.

Kyle Trout is named by Hull KR after joining during the week. He is joined by the returning Will Dagger whilst Craig Hall drops out.


Whilst hull KR can on their day be a challenge for anybody and they do come into this one is strong form by their own standards and of course they are fighting for their life’s, they also face a Wigan team in great form and full of quality.

Bevan French will be looking to impress and to show his worth on his debut and in what we expect to be a home win, he could prove the difference in what could be a close game as the Robins will never give in.
