Why should I watch?

To put it simply, because this is a massive game for both sides.

For The Wire, their momentum is in danger of fading away ahead of their Challenge Cup semi-final with Leeds on August 5 and after that, the Super 8s.

Plenty of supporters are concerned about some flat performances of late as needless errors begin to creep back into their game.

Nevertheless, they still find themselves in an excellent position and they will be keen to strengthen it.

They will face a Hull KR side for whom it is quite simply “do or die” time.

Anything other than a victory tonight will see them consigned to a fight for survival in the Middle 8s.

They have hit some excellent form of late and have won three games on the spin, but is it too little, too late?

What they’ve said:

“We are doing some really good things, but we are letting teams off with uncharacteristic errors. It puts us back under pressure again.

“Our defence was our backbone in mid-season but that is something we’ve gone away from.

“We’re working really hard to rectify that and once we do, we will reap the rewards.”

Steve Price, Warrington Wolves head coach

Warrington Guardian:

“You don’t want to get belted or beaten up by 30 or 40 points against Warrington and Hull and lose momentum.

“Whether we win or lose, we have to play well as we head into the split. Middle 8s or Super 8s will be determined by these next two games.

“Form is the important thing going into these final two matches.”

Tim Sheens, Hull KR head coach (talking to the Hull Daily Mail)

Numbers game:

Stefan Ratchford will make his 200th Warrington appearance when he lines up at full-back tonight.

Rather fittingly, the milestone will fall in the same city in which he made his Wire debut. That came across the river in The Wire’s 20-20 draw at Hull FC in February 2012.

It could be a special weekend for Ratchford, who celebrated his 30th birthday yesterday.

Warrington team news:

The Wire are missing two more players for the trip to East Yorkshire.

Ben Westwood (ankle) and Bryson Goodwin (knee) are ruled out of the game, and they join Ben Murdoch-Masila (leg) on the sidelines.

Mitch Brown is likely to start in the centres, while Pat Moran could make his Super League debut after being included in the 19-man squad.

Squad: Sitaleki Akauola, Kevin Brown, Mitch Brown, Josh Charnley, Daryl Clark, Mike Cooper, Chris Hill, Jack Hughes, George King, Toby King, Tom Lineham, Harvey Livett, Pat Moran, Declan Patton, Joe Philbin, Ben Pomeroy, Stefan Ratchford, Tyrone Roberts, Morgan Smith.

Hull KR team news:

Tim Sheens welcomes back two key players in the shape of centre Junior Vaivai and forward Lee Jewitt, who have had spells out of the side with injury.

They replace Justin Carney and Tommy Lee, who drop out.

Squad: Adam Quinlan, Junior Vaivai, Danny McGuire, Nick Scruton, Shaun Lunt, Mose Masoe, Maurice Blair, James Greenwood, Ben Kavanagh, Lee Jewitt, James Donaldson, Chris Clarkson, Robbie Mulhern, Liam Salter, Chris Atkin, Will Oakes, Danny Tickle, Elliot Wallis, Joel Tomkins.

One to watch:

Danny McGuire

Super League’s all-time top try-scorer has had an injury-hit campaign in East Yorkshire, but there are signs that he is just coming to the boil.

While he may not be the whippet-quick youngster that terrorised defences anymore, McGuire has adapted to hurt teams in different ways.

His performance in last year’s Grand Final shows the big-game temperament is still there, and Rovers need him to stand up more than ever.
