Hull KR duo return as Willie Peters makes changes for Leigh Leopards clash

Willie Peters has made two changes to his Hull KR side to take on Leigh Leopards. Tom Opacic and Jez Litten have both been recalled after missing the game against London Broncos last week.

Opacic didn't travel to the capital due to the imminent arrival of his new born, while Litten was rested after playing prolonged minutes during the course of the season. They replace Danny Richardson and Matty Storton, with the latter being utilised as 18th man.

As a result, Batchelor returns to the back-row after playing centre last week, with Kelepi Tanginoa on the bench. Litten starts, with Matt Parcell returning to the bench. It's otherwise unchanged, with Peters opting for continuity within his side ahead of a week off for the Challenge Cup Final.

Rovers could climb to third with a victory, which is essentially the midway point of the season. In their way are Leigh, who are unbeaten in four matches and looking to close the gap between themselves and the teams in the play-offs.
