Two of Super League's most in-form sides meet on Sunday when Hull KR travel to Warrington Wolves, with both sides having won their last five matches.

Wolves are just two points adrift of league leaders Wigan Warriors while recent form has seen the Robins elevated to sixth in the Super League standings.

Tony Smith has named two changes to the Wolves squad which triumphed 44-24 over Huddersfield Giants last time out.

Glenn Riley joins the match-day squad while there is no room for Simon Grix as the hosts look to assert their authority in a tight top three.

Prop Brad Dwyer comes into Smith's 19-man party with Adrian Morley out of contention for the Round 22 clash.

Danger

Smith acknowledges the form of Hull KR and issues a thorough warning to his players that they must remain on the pulse if they are to prevail.

"They are a danger when on their game and have some terrific players right across the field," he said. "We expect a tough battle and we will need to be switched on for the full duration."

Similarly, Craig Sandercock has also made two changes to his Rovers side, which beat Salford City Reds 28-18 in the last round of fixtures.

Tyler Hepi joins the travelling party at the expense of outside back Adam Brown as the Robins look for a sixth successive victory.

Back row Corey Paterson is also left out of the squad with Sean Gleeson making the trip to the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Wolves: C. Bridge, Briers, Carvell, Cooper, Currie, Dwyer, Harrison, Higham, Hill, Hodgson, McCarthy, J. Monaghan, M. Monaghan, Ratchford, C. Riley, G. Riley, Waterhouse, Williams, Wood.

Hull K R: Salter, Netherton, Walker, Gleeson, Tuimavave, Cox, Mika, Burns, Horne, Beaumont, Hall, Paea, D. Hodgson, Lovegrove, Dobson, Withers, Eden, Hepi, J. Hodgson.
