Hull KR head into the final round of Super League action for a clash with foot-of-the-table London Broncos knowing their place in the play-offs is already secure.

Despite losing to Widnes 36-22 last weekend, Rovers sealed a place in the knockout stages with a six-point advantage over Bradford Bulls in the overall standings.

With qualification secure, Rovers boss Craig Sandercock has made a raft of changes to the side which lost out to the Vikings last time out.

Eight changes in total see Kris Welham, Tyla Hepi, Alex Brown, Aaron Ollett, Jason Netherton, Chris Heil and under-19 stars Josh Guzdek and Connor Robinson drafted in as preparations for the play-offs begin.

Rovers will have one eye on the crucial fixtures ahead as backs Sean Gleeson, David Hodgson and Liam Salter all sit out for the visit of the Broncos, as do forwards Con Mika, Adam Walker, Travis Burns and Josh Hodgson.

Sandercock's men have only managed to register one victory in their previous five outings, as have Sunday's opponents London Broncos.

Shock result

The Broncos did however produce a shock 20-10 victory over Bradford Bulls last weekend and coach Tony Rea has made just one change to the side which prevailed.

The lone switch sees outside back Jamie O'Callaghan join the travelling party, with no place for half back James Woodburn-Hall.

Australian half-back Dan Sarginson could be in line to make a comeback having successfully recovered from a calf injury during the week.

Despite being rooted at the base of the table Broncos boss Rea was delighted with the shock result last time out and expects his side to go out and end on a high note in their final Super League fixture of the campaign.

"The side played with terrific spirit against Bradford and travelled well," he said. "They had a good week together and enjoying each other's company which is important going into the last game so we're sticking with the same squad.

"That's a real positive way to finish the season, it's about us having good effort and doing our best."

Hull KR: Brown, Beaumont, Carlile, Caro, Cox, Dobson, Green, Griffin, Hall, Heil, Lovegrove, Hepi, Netherton, Ollett, Guzdek, Robinson, Tuimavave, Welham, Withers.

London Broncos: Bryant, Bishay, Caton-Brown, Colbon, Cook, Dixon, Dollapi, Fisher, Howell, Hurst, Kaufusi, Krasniqi, Lee, McMeeken, Melling, O'Callaghan, Sarginson, Soward, Wicks.
