SAINTS travel to Hull KR on Sunday (3pm) looking to preserve their four-point cushion at the Super League summit.

Although they had a good win there last year, the place has traditionally been a tough place to play this past decade.

The last time the teams met, Saints overcame some significant late disruption to triumph at home to the Robins.

Coach Justin Holbrook said: “Hull KR played some good rugby last time against us and got some points on the board.

“It was a very disrupted game for us late in the day with Big Al leaving the changing rooms late.

“Mark Percival and Zeb Taia pulled out on gameday so we had a lot of late changes and it took us a long time to settle.

“We were good enough to get the win.

“Hull KR have been inconsistent due to the amount of injuries they have had.

“They nearly beat Leeds at the weekend.

“We have to keep our focus on us, but we have to be aware that Danny McGuire and Josh Drinkwater are both very smart players.

“We have to be aware of them but also continue on our focus.

“We had a good win there last year – but with that boisterous noisy crowd it is a tough place to play.”

Saints will take a big following, having already sold out their allocation behind the usual goal.
