Widnes v Hull KR (Saturday, KO 3pm)
The Vikings welcome the Robins for their first home fixture in almost two months, with Cummins looking to get off the mark with a first win since being appointed Interim Head Coach.
He has made three changes to his 19-man squad as Olly Ashall-Bott, Ted Chapelhow and Wellington Albert all come in for Widnes, who are bottom of Super League.
Meanwhile, Rovers are without winger Ryan Shaw who has been ruled out with a knee ligament injury, whilst Junior Vaivai is also absent from the squad this week.
The centre underwent a minor operation on his nose earlier today and is likely to miss to the trip to the Vikings, although is expected to be fit for next Friday's clash with Warrington Wolves at KCOM Craven Park.
Will Dagger is the other player to make way this week as Sheens calls up Elliot Wallis and Justin Carney as cover for Shaw, with a final assessment on Carney's availability to be made following Friday's final team run.
Forward Chris Clarkson also returns to the 19 and could feature after missing the victory over Salford with a chest infection.
