THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

WARRINGTON WOLVES

Head Coach: Steve Price

Squad: Atkins, K. Brown, M. Brown, Charnley, Clark, Hill, Hughes, Johnson, G. King, Lineham, Livett, Moran, Murdoch-Masila, Patton, Philbin, Pomeroy, Ratchford, Roberts, Westwood

Unavailable: Toby King, Dom Crosby, Ben Currie, Bryson Goodwin, Mike Cooper, Sitaleki Akauola

  • Warrington were soundly beaten by Wigan at Magic Weekend as the Wolves fell four points behind the second-placed Warriors. Wigan proved too good and took their chances well, something that Warrington failed to do as they fell to a 38-10 loss.

  • Steve Price has been forced into three changes with Bryson Goodwin and Mike Cooper injured whilst Sitaleki Akauola is suspended. Luis Johnson, Ben Pomeroy and Pat Moran all receive call-ups to the 19-man squad.

  • Warrington’s defeat last week was their first in 11 in all competitions. They now return to home soil where they have won their last six games.

HULL FC

Head Coach: Lee Radford

Squad: Connor, Fash, Green, Hadley, Harris, Houghton, Lane, Litten, Logan, Manu, Matongo, Miloudi, Minichiello, Paea, Sanderson, Scott, Shaul, Washbrook, Westerman

Unavailable: Jordan Abdull, Albert Kelly, Marc Sneyd, Josh Bowden, Carlos Tuimavave, Fetuli Talanoa, Bureta Faraimo, Josh Griffin, Kirk Yeaman, Scott Taylor

  • Hull managed to overcome local rivals Hull KR at Magic Weekend last week. With both teams missing some key men, it was FC who managed to come out on top as they claimed a 22-34 victory.

  • Lee Radford has even more injuries to deal with this week after Josh Griffin was ruled out for three months whilst Scott Taylor and Kirk Yeaman are also unavailable for this game. Youngster Jack Sanderson could make his debut whilst Jordan Lane and Brad Fash are named in the 19.

  • Hull have only won three times away from home all season with one of those being last week’s win at a neutral venue.

THE PREDICTION

Hull travel to Warrington with a significant chunk of their salary cap sat in the stands as their injury problems mount. The Black and Whites were able to beat local rivals Hull KR last week but that came at a cost with Josh Griffin and Scott Taylor adding to their already significant list of unavailable talent. Warrington’s brilliant winning streak came to an abrupt end as Wigan were comfortable winners for condemn the Wolves to their first defeat in 11. In this contest that sees third against fourth, it is likely that fourth-placed Hull’s injury problems will be too much to cope with and Warrington should be able to open up a four-point gap over their opponents in the Super League table.
