Reserves – vs Bradford Bulls (A)
*UPDATED: – This match has now been brought forward to Friday night, changing venue too with the game to be played at Horsfall Stadium. The change has been made in anticipation of the weather, moving to a 4g pitch to safeguard the fixture going ahead.
The Red V Reserves are on the hunt for their third win of the season in as many games!
Big home scores were posted over Newcastle Thunder (72-4) and Wakefield Trinity (50-20), but now it’s an away for the first time in 2023 for the Reserves at Odsal Stadium against Bradford Bulls.
The Bulls Reserves have lost twice on the road to Leeds Rhinos and Hull FC, so on their own patch they will be keen to impress.

First Team – vs Hull KR (A)
The Saints will be looking to shake off the away loss to Wigan Warriors on Good Friday. The Red V created a number of chances to put more points on the board at the DW Stadium, but could not make them count. So Paul Wellens’ men will be very eager to get back more of their attacking confidence, and avoid back-to-back defeats.
