Hull KR ready to promote latest home-grown star Nick Johnson
NICK Johnson could be the latest Hull-born youngster handed his Super League chance by Hull KR this weekend.
Johnson is in line to replace leading try scorer Dave Hodgson, who tore his hamstring in the 42-36 defeat to Wigan on Sunday.
Johnson has been named in Sandercock's 19-man squad this season but has yet to make his senior debut.
Now, Sandercock admits he could get the call he has been waiting for.

"There is a chance Nick Johnson could feature," Sandercock told the Mail.
"You might see one or two of the young kids play as there have been a couple that have impressed me in training.
"They may well get their opportunity this weekend."
If Johnson is handed his Super League debut against London, he will be the sixth youngster promoted to the first team this season.
"The kids who have come in at the back end of the season have done really well," said Sandercock.
"Their positives far outweigh the negatives. They will be so much better for this experience but they now need to work hard in the off season.
Rovers have only pride to play for this weekend at London, but Sandercock insists his side will be up for the game."
"We've had enough of losing close games. We want to be in the game and finish the season well," he said.
