Smith can’t wait to go for Rovers return

Tony Smith could hardly be happier with the way Hull KR is presenting as they return to action after a weekend off as the Challenge Cup semi-finals have taken place.

Their previous Super League game saw the Rovers bounce back with a convincing 40-16 home win over winless Leigh Centurions, pushing them into the top six in the table.

The Robins host another of the competition’s wrestlers on Friday at Salford Red Devils, now live Air sports following Leeds Rhinos’ postponement against St Helens, and head coach Smith is pleased with the work done in the extended preparation for this match.

“I’m glad it’s a win [against Leigh] because it’s 12 long days if you have a loss or a poor performance and I think that has done us good, ”said Smith.

“We had a mini-break last week where they spent time with their families, but we did a real quality job and they were able to step in and work on some things that we needed.

“Some of these were some of our bright spots, but some of them are obviously areas that we need to improve on. I hope we’ve achieved a bit over these 12 days, not just refreshed.”

Smith is further bolstered by the return of George King, who missed the victory over Leigh and the 28-12 loss to Wakefield Trinity with a hip injury and returns straight to the 21-man squad.

Pleasure is the key to the Red Devils

There hasn’t been much to celebrate for Salford in the first two months of Richard Marshall’s reign as head coach, with their only victories so far over promoted Leigh Centurions in the Super League and against the Widnes Vikings Championship team in the Challenge Cup.

However, Marshall wants his team to find pleasure in what they do as they prepare to travel to Hull College Craven Park for Friday’s Super League game against Hull KR.

Like Rovers, they come into this game after having had a weekend off to cool off and refocus after a 62-18 loss at the hands of Warrington last time around and the Red Devils boss keeps a positive frame of mind. .

“I think the most trying time we’ve had are the last three games,” said Marshall. “Playing with the top three teams in the competition was tough and certainly took a toll on our team.

“These games aren’t less opposition just because they’re not sitting at the top of the table. Probably even more so, there’s a little bit of pressure where we are right now.

“We have to perform really well and enjoy what we’re doing – I think that’s the key word. Control what we can control and enjoy being a team.”

Marshall is expected to make his debut at former Wigan Warriors winger Joe Burgess, but he is without center Kallum Watkins and half-back Kevin Brown for up to three months.

Watkins ruptured knee ligaments in the loss to Wolves while Brown is due to have surgery on Friday to repair ankle ligaments and has confirmed he will retire at the end of the season.

Chester ready for the Warrington test

Chris Chester is set for Wakefield to face a tough test from their recent resurgence when they travel to Halliwell Jones Stadium to face Warrington on Friday night.

Having started 2021 with seven straight losses in all competitions, Trinity turned the tide to win their last three games.

They are now taking on a Warrington side still suffering from last Saturday’s Challenge Cup semi-final defeat at the hands of the Castleford Tigers and aiming to keep in touch with the leaders of the Super League.

“It will be an acid test this week against Warrington,” Chester said. “We are up against a top-four team that will suffer loss this weekend.

“It’s probably a good time to face them. We’re in good shape, we’re a confident squad, but I’m sure they’ll want to do their best on Friday night.”

Chester is assessing whether to give winger Tom Johnstone his first game in two months and will check the fitness of mainstay Kelepi Tanginoa after his 30-20 win over Leigh last Sunday with a dead leg.

Warrington coach Steve Price’s only hope of ending his time at the club with silverware now rests on a debut Grand Final success and he expects them to stay the course by bouncing back at Halliwell Jones Stadium Friday night.

“It was a disappointing performance on Saturday,” said Price, reflecting on the 35-20 Cup loss to Castleford. “We are going to learn some hard lessons.

“There are a few things to be addressed, but I have a great deal of conviction and confidence that we can turn the tide this week.”
