Wigan Warriors vs Hull Kingston Rovers

The Wigan Warriors welcome Hull KR to the DW Stadium for this all important round 21 match up from the 2019 Super League season in a game that is hugely important for both sides.

After starting the season so badly, Wigan have continued to improve and have played themselves into the play-off picture but such is the closeness of the Super League table, a loss in this one could see them looking over their shoulder once more towards the relegation scrap.

Wigan are now one of the form teams in the competition and start the round in 5th place whilst the Robins are in their strongest form of the season but despite that they start the round joint bottom of the table.

Hull KR defeated their big rivals Hull FC last time out and that confidence boost sets this up to be a fascinating match up.

Form

The Warriors have won each of their last 4 outings whilst Hull KR have won 3 of their last 5.

Wigan have won 3 of their last 4 home outings whilst Hull KR have won just 2 of their last 5 on the road.

Team News

Wigan will be without both Sean O’Loughlin and Joe Greenwood due to injury.

Jimmy Keinhorst replaces Tommy Lee in Hull KR’s only change.

Prediction

Whilst the Robins will make life difficult for Wigan on the back of some quality additions lately and after their win in the Hull Derby last time out, it is difficult to back against an improving and confidence Wigan side.
