Hull KR have received a quadruple boost ahead of their Super League clash against high-flying St Helens at New Craven Park.

The Robins are currently licking their wounds following their humiliating 84-6 club-record defeat to Wigan Warriors on Easter Monday.

Saints also went down to the Warriors last week before responding with a comfortable home success over the Castleford Tigers.

KR boss Craig Sandercock has more options at his disposal for the visit of Nathan Brown's men with a number of key players back.

Playmaker Michael Dobson has been named in the club's 19-man squad along with Cory Paterson, David Hodgson and Josh Hodgson.


Dobson has been struggling with a hamstring injury of late, although the Robins will be without Travis Burns this weekend due to suspension.

The promising half-back has been banned for two matches for making a Grade B high tackle in Good Friday's derby win over Hull FC.

"Obviously our lack of depth was exposed big time by Wigan," Sandercock told the Hull Daily Mail. "It's an absolute pleasure to have any senior players back."

For St Helens, experienced winger Ade Gardner misses out with the head injury he sustained in the Good Friday defeat to Wigan while former New Zealand international Lance Hohaia is named in Brown's 19-man squad.

Australian prop Josh Perry, who scored two tries in Monday's win over the Tigers, misses out after suffering a shoulder injury in the match.

Hull KR: Salter, Brown, Walker, Horne, Griffin, Paterson, Mika, Tuimavave, Welham, Cox, Hall, Paea, Carlile, Beaumont, Dobson, D. Hodgson, Eden, J. Hodgson, Lovegrove.

St Helens: Wellens, Turner, Soliola, Meli, Hohaia, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Wilkin, Laffranchi, Flanagan, Clough, Jones, Makinson, Ashe, Greenwood, Walmsley, Swift, Percival, Tilley, Howarth.
