THE TEAM NEWS

HULL FC

Head Coach: Lee Radford

Squad: Ellis, Faraimo, Fash, Griffin, Hadley, Houghton, Kelly, Lane, Litten, Manu, Matongo, Minichiello, Naulago, Shaul, Sneyd, Taylor, Thompson, Tuimavave, Westerman

Unavailable: Matty Dawson-Jones, Josh Bowden, Chris Green, Josh Bowden, Liam Harris, Jake Connor, Mickey Paea

  • Hull FC won their third game in a row as they were impressive victors over Leeds Rhinos last week and will look for four in a row here which could really highlight their intentions for the season.

  • The Black and Whites have signed Andre Savelio from Brisbane Broncos but he will have to wait for his debut with him due in the UK at the end of the week meaning he will miss the Wakefield game.

  • Head coach Lee Radford is forced into one change to his 19-man squad with prop Mickey Paea dropping out with the rib injury he suffered in last week’s game which brings Brad Fash into contention.

WAKEFIELD TRINITY

Head Coach: Chris Chester

Squad: Arona, Arundel, Ashurst, Batchelor, Brough, Crowther, England, Fifita, Hampshire, Horo, Johnstone, Jones-Bishop, King, Kirmond, Kopczak, Lyne, Miller, Pauli, Tupou, Wood

Unavailable: Tyler Randell, Craig Huby, James Batchelor

  • Wakefield failed to cross the whitewash as they went down to Hull KR in a low-scoring affair in terrible conditions last week and will be looking to quickly get back on track with a trip to Hull FC.

  • Matty Ashurst has made a quicker than expected recovery after he was set to miss several games but surprisingly takes his place in the 19-man-squad although James Batchelor misses out through injury.

  • Jordan Crowther also comes back into Chris Chester’s squad having earned a recall but Keegan Hirst has been dropped after a few poor performances from the prop as he looks set for a stint in the Reserves.

THE PREDICTION

Hull have found their feet after ending their long losing run and produced a striking result against Leeds last week to continue their turnaround. They now host a Wakefield side that failed to score last week and with the Black and Whites full of confidence, this poses a tough test for the away side. They will have to put in a much-improved effort from last week’s poor display with conditions set to be a lot better for this contest but it’s the in-form home side that can keep their winning run going.
