Hull KR will be without veteran forward Jamie Langley for the visit of Wakefield on Sunday.

The 30-year-old will have to sit out the round seven fixture due to a hamstring injury he picked up in last week's defeat of his former club Bradford and will join the suspended Justin Poore on the sidelines.

Poore, who spent the 2013 season at Wakefield, picked up a three-match ban for a dangerous throw in last week's win, his second suspension of the season. The collective loss of both players is likely to be felt up front by Craig Sandercock's team.

Back in the 19-man squad for the Robins are exciting full-back Greg Eden, along with Rhys Lovegrove, Jason Netherton and academy product Aaron Ollett, who will be looking to add to his four first team appearances from 2013.

The Wildcats put up a bold showing despite a 16-24 reverse at home to joint leaders St Helens last weekend, a defeat that leaves them just outside the top eight.

Coach Richard Agar is boosted by the return of talented centre Dean Collis to his squad. Rovers know all about the threat that Collis presents after he scored tries in each of the last three meetings between the teams.

Danny Washbrook is also ready to resume hostilities for Wakefield, though on-loan threequarter Jimmy Keinhorst misses out.

The Super League head-to-head between the clubs has Wakefield nosing just ahead with eight wins from their 14 meetings, while Hull KR's Ben Cockayne has scored tries in each of the last four fixtures between them, though all of those were for the Wildcats.

Hull KR: Burns, Carlile, Caro, Cockayne, Costigan, Cox, Eden, Gardner, Green, J. Hodgson, Keating, Larroyer, Lovegrove, Netherton, Ollett, Salter, A. Walker, Welham, Weyman.

Wakefield: Mathers, Fox, Collis, Lyne, Sykes, Godinet, Anderson, McShane, Lauitiiti, Kirmond, Washbrook, Ryan, Tautai, Smith, Raleigh, Siejka, Sammut, Scruton, Riley.
