Mulhern nearing Robins return

Hull KR head coach Tim Sheens has delivered an injury update, as the team aims to stave off the treat of relegation in the months ahead.

Sheens led the Robins to an immediate return to Super League last season, but as we approach the latter stages of the regular season, they are one of the sides under threat in the competition's bottom four.

Hull KR hope to welcome back forward Robbie Mulhern and George Lawler in the weeks ahead, while Andrew Heffernan and Danny Addy remain set for longer spells on the sidelines.

"I think that Robbie could be a possibility for the Huddersfield match, it's been a miraculous recovery for that kid. I don't think he's worried about making a push for England, he just wants to get back to the team for the end of the season," said Sheens, with many tipping Mulhern for an international call-up.

"There are a couple of players who we hope will at least be pushing for the 8s, no matter where we are. Rob wants to get back on deck for that and George Lawler won't be too far behind him, we hope.

"He's been cleared by the specialist but he still has a lot of work to do," added Sheens.

"The only one aside from Andrew Heffernan, who's suffering from severe concussion, that we won't see back this year, is Danny Addy who is recovering from a bad ACL injury."

Meanwhile, St Helens are 1213.00 to lift the Challenge Cup this season, with Warrington Wolves 1.44 and Leeds Rhinos 8.00.
