Bradford Bulls welcome back forward John Bateman for his first appearance of the season after undergoing a shoulder reconstruction while centre Adrian Purtell is also named in coach Francis Cummins’ 19-man squad after receiving the all-clear to resume playing after a heart attack. Winger Jamie Foster returns from a shoulder injury but Matty Blythe, Matt Diskin and Jamie Langley replace him on the injury list. Teenage centre Sam Wood has received a first call-up.
The availability of hooker Josh Hodgson, who has served a one-match ban, and the return to fitness of utility back Craig Hall gives Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock the option to change a winning team as they look for a third straight victory.
