Widnes Vikings are without captain Jon Clarke and his hooking understudy Grant Gore, who broke a kneecap in the win at Warrington Wolves, while back rower Hep Cahill is suspended. Prop Ben Cross and hooker or half-back Lloyd White are poised to end lengthy injury absences and England second rower Gareth Hock is also fit again.
Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock sticks largely with the team that won at Leeds Rhinos. Rich Beaumont and George Griffin are vying to take the place of Jason Netherton, who is out with a hip injury, while winger Alex Brown is hoping for a recall after being named in the 19-man squad.
