It is literally do or die for Hull Kingston Rovers tonight; they must win at defending champions St Helens or they will be consigned to the Qualifiers in the second part of the season. Nothing less than victory is good enough, whilst St Helens also know that they need a win themselves to have any chance of catching Leeds Rhinos at the top ahead of the Super 8s.
