Hull KR head coach Tony Smith has indicated that he will have five more key stars to call upon this week as the Robins welcome Wakefield on Sunday in a crucial relegation battle.

Both sides are coming off a loss, with both level on points just one win above bottom placed London with four rounds remaining.

Rovers went down in a battling defeat to Wigan without a host of key names, with Smith now confident that Danny McGuire, Mitch Garbutt, Craig Hall, George Lawler and Kane Linnett will all be fit to feature.

“Linnett isn’t a definite but he’s pretty confident. That makes five extra bodies to choose from,” he said.

“Mitch has made progress. Giving him a couple of weeks to work on his knee has been beneficial.

“Danny could have played last week at a pinch but it’s tough for him to train and do the short turnarounds nowadays.”
