Caretaker boss Chris Chester takes charge of Hull KR for the visit of Super League leaders St Helen’s on Sunday.

Assistant Chester has been given the temporary reins after the Robins sacked head coach Craig Sandercock on Thursday following just seven wins in Super League so far this season, which has left the club sitting outside the top eight.

Experience winger David Hodgson hopes the side can build on the positives of their narrow 26-22 defeat to Huddersfield last time as they bid to get themselves back on track for the play-offs, with the ninth-placed Robins sitting three points off eighth-placed Widnes, although they have a game in hand.

Hodgson told the club’s official website:  “It’s tight on the table, especially around where we are at the minute.

“We could have done with a win against Huddersfield, it would have kept us up there and kept a little bit of a gap to a few other teams, but we’ve got to work hard from here.

“We’ve got some tough games coming up but if we play half as good as we did against the Giants and fix up a few little things, we should go alright.

“Hopefully we can pick up a few more wins and keep us moving towards the top eight.”

Team news

Chester makes two changes to the side that lost to Huddersfield, with Kevin Larroyer returning from injury and Omari Caro recalled in place of Ade Gardner.

Gary Wheeler and Jordan Hand are back for Saints, although full-back Shannon McDonnell has not made the squad after joining the Super League leaders for the remainder of the season as a free agent.

Hull K R: Burns, Carlile, Caro, Cox, Eden, Esslemont, Green, Hall, D. Hodgson, J. Hodgson, Horne, Keating, Larroyer, Lovegrove, Netherton, Ollett, A. Walker, Welham, Weyman.

St Helens: Makinson, Turner, Jones, Swift, Hohaia, Masoe, Roby, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Soliola, Wilkin, Manu, Flanagan, Wellens, Walmsley, Percival, Wheeler, Richards, Thompson, Hand.
