Double boost for KR, but two players ruled out

James Webster has named James Donaldson in his squad for the first time ahead of Hull KR’s Challenge Cup tie against Oldham.

Donaldson has been unavailable following wrist surgery on an injury he picked up during the opening game of the season.

In a further boost, John Boudebza returns to the squad after suffering from a hip injury, giving Hull KR two recognised hookers to pick from in Boudebza and Shaun Lunt.

In not so good news for Rovers, Thomas Minns and Mitch Allgood will miss the game against their Championship opponents. Minns is struggling with a quad issue while Allgood has a number of injuries he is dealing with, including thumb and shoulder issues.

Hull KR’s 19-man squad to face Oldham:  Ken Sio, Iain Thornley, Kieran Dixon, Adam Walker, Shaun Lunt, Maurice Blair, Chris Clarkson, James Donaldson, James Green, Dane Tilse, Ben Cockayne, John Boudebza, James Greenwood, Matty Marsh, George Lawler, Robbie Mulhern, Kieran Moran, Joe Wardill, Joe Cator.
