HOT and cold Hull KR will be hoping to be firing tonight.
Recent form from the Robins suggests things are on the up, though, after they saw off play-off rivals Bradford, which moved them up to eighth in the Super League XVIII table.
However, their Magic Weekend encounter saw them taste defeat to bitter rivals Hull FC in the most controversial of circumstances.
Their cross-city enemy scored a last-gasp try, which went to the video referee.
And despite tryscoring prop Chris Green clearly being in an offside position, the score was still awarded.
That prompted chairman Neil Hudgell to blast the RFL, after they were not satisfied with the apology they received from former Giants coach and FC man Jon Sharp, who is now head of referees.
The future of the club also looks to be up in the air, with Hudgell announcing he will quit the club at the end of the campaign, with the money man admitting he is unwilling to continue to service debt after their “disgraceful” performance against Wigan Warriors.
But for the time being the red and whites look to be a dangerous attacking prospect on the pitch, and the Giants defence will have to be on song to stop them from going points crazy tonight.
MICHAEL DOBSON remains key to the Rovers play-off hopes.
The ex-Canberra Raider is one of the best scrum halves in the competition, with his controlled passing and kicking game so difficult to deal with.
If the 2010 Super League Dream Team member is given time on the ball and space to create for his teammates, the Giants will have a tough time defending their line, and Dobson will give Paul Anderson a real headache in his team’s preparation for the game.
CRAIG SANDERCOCK is a man with one goal.
A former economics teacher, Sandercock has a good pedigree, learning his trade under Des Hasler at current Australian NRL champions Manly Sea Eagles, and then moving on to be assistant at Newcastle Knights.
Sandercock has a difficult act to follow, with predecessor Justin Morgan held as a cult figure at the club after leading them from the National league into a top-flight force.
His remit this year is simple; to guide Hull KR into the play-offs for the fourth time and, based on current form, they look to be in the hunt.
