Caretaker player-coach Matt Diskin has made a trio of changes for Friday's visit of Hull Kingston Rovers (kick-off 8.00pm).

Diskin, who has taken temporary charge, is himself in line to feature and has recalled Australian Brett Kearney from injury, with Jay Pitts and Alex Mellor also coming back into contention.

The three replace Adam Henry, Joe Arundel and Jamie Foster to take up their places in this week's pre-match line-up.

The 19-man squad: Danny Addy, Jordan Baldwinson, Matty Blythe, Matt Diskin, James Donaldson, Jamal Fakir, Luke Gale, Lee Gaskell, Luke George, Elliot Kear, Brett Kearney, Adam O'Brien, Tom Olbison, Manase Manuokafoa, Alex Mellor, Jay Pitts, Adrian Purtell, Adam Sidlow, Chev Walker.

Reckon its his defence, Cummins didn't think he was putting it in on his wing.
Henry was another, thats why they are both out at the moment.

McNamara would have given them extended contracts rather than dropping them.

He can change the players as many times as he likes. It's the heads of the players that need changing. Diskin says he doesn't support the sacking of Cummins, but he was team captain and the players weren't performing for him either. How is this going to change now he's coaching them as well?
