I can't say I'm confident but I am at least hopeful that our forwards up their game after the nonsense at Salford and a sherlacking by Sheens after the match.

If we win (and its a big IF), I reckon McBanana will be gone.

Thought they played well against Wakey but still lost. Asking a lot for us to get anything over there and could be a long 80 min? Best chance is to get ahead early and keep the pressure on, then their frustrations would probably lead to penalties and more ill discipline. Any points would be a bonus imo

We are playing them at a good time, the Castleford cancellation means we are going into it fresh. If we seriously still believe we have top 8 ambitions then its a must win game, lose it and I think it is guaranteed middle 8's (if it isn't already!)

They're rubbish. If you can get 3 tries you'll win

I would look to get the ball wide early (they don't look strong to me there), and get an offer load game going.
We haven't got the pack to match them toe to toe, so would be looking to move them around the park.
Hull KR the pride of East Hull.

In fairness i'm quite confidant of a win this weekend, but looking down the fixture list it could be a struggle to get a run together over the next 4/5 weeks.

With Moa, McIlorum, Anderson & Gigot returning and home advantage Catalans will be much stronger than last time.

They have played far better at home losing narrowly to Saints & Wakefield, the only 100% teams. You'd also expect a degree of desperation about them with them looking for their first win.

Not mission impossible but it's going to be very difficult.
I couldn't hear the robin sing if not for you.

They've worked hard against saints and wakey but they have next to no attacking threat. Defend reasonably well and you'll win as they're flakey and are bound to give you plenty of opportunities
