Hull KR head to the south of France in a hastily re-arranged Betfred Super League fixture with Catalans Dragons and they can give the league leaders plenty to think about.
The Robins should have been playing St Helens this week while the Dragons were scheduled for a showdown with Castleford Tigers but both fixtures fell foul of Covid protocols to leave us with this mouthwatering clash in Perpignan.
Hull KR should be well rested after more than a month without a game but that could be as much a hindrance as it is a benefit.
If they can quickly shake off any lingering rust the Robins could be a handful for the Frenchmen, who have lost just one of their 13 league games this season.
The Dragons have also dominated this fixture, winning 13 of the last 14 meetings on home soil, but this is the best Rovers side for a long while and they have performed well above expectations this season making their way up to sixth in the standings.
A surprise win at odds of 10-3 may be just be beyond them but a 12-point start on the handicap looks pretty generous.
