Welcome along to tonight's live Hull KR blog where we will be bringing you live updates from Ealing Trailfinders on a massive game at the bottom of Super League.

The relegation rivals could hardly be closer in the table, with less than a converted try between the sides after 18 rounds.

Both Rovers and London Broncos claimed shock wins last time out which dragged more teams into the fight for survival.

This game represents a chance for one of these clubs to jump up the table, with the loser guaranteed to end the weekend bottom of the pile.

The latter scenario doesn't bear thinking about for KR with a derby date with Hull FC up next.

Keep up to date with all the action as it happens in the live blog below.

Cooke on tonight's clash

Hull KR travel to face London Broncos tomorrow knowing the consequences with regards to the result.

Quite simply, a win means Rovers climb a place to 10th and a loss means they drop a place to the bottom after 19 rounds which means the pressure is on.

However, it’s on both teams, maybe even more so the hosts as the Broncos’ players know this home game against the team closest to them is one that carries so many gains with a positive result, both in terms of the table and psychologically moving into the latter stages of the 2019 season and the battle to avoid relegation.

Ward keeping in-form Broncos grounded

London Broncos have the chance to lift themselves off the foot of the Super League table but coach Danny Ward is treating Thursday’s basement battle with Hull KR as just another game.

The Broncos made a flying start on their return to the top flight with three wins from their opening seven matches to raise their hopes of avoiding a quick return to the Championship before losing seven in a row.

They have been bottom of the pile since April but three wins from their last four matches, including a golden-point triumph over leaders St Helens in their last home game, has again boosted their survival hopes.

“The boys are pretty confident after the last couple of victories,” Ward said. “It’s a pretty exciting camp at the minute, especially being on Sky and being at home.

Drinkwater delivers same message

It has been billed as one of the biggest games of the Super League season so far but key men in both camps have done their best to play down the magnitude of Hull KR ’s clash with London Broncos.

Good evening!

Welcome along to Ealing Trailfinders where we will hopefully be bringing you updates on a stress-free win for Hull KR.

The reality is likely to be much different given how close the two teams are in the Super League table.

It is fair to say sides are looking at London a little differently after their wins over St Helens and Catalans Dragons.

The Broncos are giving themselves a real chance of survival and it is up to Rovers to burst their bubble.

As for KR, there is just something about Tony Smith that makes you feel that everything is going to be OK.
