Tony Smith has named his strongest available team for Hull KR’s clash with Leeds Rhinos at Headingley.

Rovers are guaranteed a play-off spot thanks to Warrington Wolves’ win over Castleford Tigers but Smith has resisted the urge to rest players with fifth spot up for grabs.

Smith has been forced into three changes after losing Ryan Hall and Greg Minikin to season-ending injuries, while Albert Vete has also been ruled out with a muscle strain sustained in training.

Korbin Sims – fit again after missing four games with a lower leg injury – has been named on the bench, alongside on-loan Leeds prop Muizz Mustapha and Will Tate.

It is Tate’s first Super League appearance of the season, with the young back’s only game time this year coming during a loan spell at Rochdale Hornets.

Brad Takairangi was an injury doubt but he lines up in the centres in the absence of Minikin, while Keinhorst takes Hall’s place on the wing and Johnson starts in the second row.

The Robins remain without Adam Quinlan, Elliot Minchella, Ethan Ryan, Dean Hadley and George Lawler.

Leeds: Jack Broadbent, Luke Briscoe, Harry Newman, Tom Briscoe, Ash Handley, Rob Lui, Richie Myler, Bodene Thompson, Kruise Leeming, Matt Prior, Morgan Gannon, Rhyse Martin, Cameron Smith.

Bench: Konrad Hurrell, Brad Dwyer, Tom Holroyd, James Donaldson.

Hull KR: Will Dagger, Ben Crooks, Brad Takairangi, Shaun Kenny-Dowall, Jimmy Keinhorst, Jordan Abdull, Mikey Lewis, George King, Matt Parcell, Will Maher, Luis Johnson, Kane Linnett, Matty Storton.

Bench: Korbin Sims, Jez Litten, Muizz Mustapha, Will Tate.
