Gene Set For Second Debut

Stanley Gene will make his eagerly-awaited second debut for Hull Kingston Rovers when they visit the JJB Stadium, Wigan on Friday.

The 32-year-old utility back, who scored 94 tries in 111 appearances during his first spell with Rovers from 1996-2000, rejoined the club from Bradford in the close season but sat out their opening three Super League matches with a knee injury.

"The fans are very keen to see Stanley back in action and so is Stanley," said Rovers coach Justin Morgan.

The Robins will also welcome back loose forward Chris Chester, a former Wigan player who missed Sunday's 26-10 defeat by Harlequins with a groin injury.

However, they have fitness doubts over second rower Mark O'Neill (hamstring) and exciting full-back Ben Cockayne (neck).

Tickets are available for Hull KR's first ever visit to the JJB Stadium by calling the Ticket Hotline on 0871 66-33-552, visiting the JJB Stadium Ticket Office or by [clicking here].
