Hull Kingston Rovers coach Tim Sheens has added Jordan Abdull to his squad after the half-back recovered from a long-term foot injury - the only change to the team that won at Featherstone Rovers.

Widnes Vikings are set to switch Corey Thompson to full-back in place of the injured Rhys Hanbury, with Ryan Ince favourite to fill the vacant wing spot. Jordan Johnstone is recalled in place of injured half-back Danny Craven and centre or
second rower Chris Dean is in line to make his first appearance since May.
