THE TEAM NEWS

HULL FC

Head Coach: Lee Radford

Squad: Faraimo, Griffin, Hadley, Houghton, Kelly, Lane, Litten, Manu, Matongo, Miloudi, Minichiello, Paea, Sneyd, Talanoa, Taylor, Thompson, Tuimavave, Washbrook, Westerman

Unavailable: Matty Dawson-Jones, Josh Bowden, Chris Green, Josh Bowden, Jake Connor, Ratu Naulago, Jamie Shaul, Gareth Ellis

  • Hull got back to winning ways as they held off a late London fightback this week for their fourth win from their last five games but will be aiming to beat one of the teams they hope to be challenging with in the top 5 in Warrington.

  • The Black and Whites will be without Jamie Shaul as he suffered his second head knock of the season and will not clear the concussion protocol with the fullback joined on the sidelines by winger Ratu Naulago and forward Gareth Ellis.

  • Cameron Scott also makes way from last week’s 19-man squad with Joe Westerman and Mark Minichiello back after missing the London game whilst Fetuli Talanoa and Hakim Miloudi make up the squad.

WARRINGTON WOLVES

Head Coach: Steve Price

Squad: Atkins, Austin, Charnley, D. Clark, J. Clark, Cooper, Currie, Hill, Hughes, King, Lineham, Livett, Mamo, Murdoch-Masila, Patton, Philbin, Ratchford, Tasi, Walker

Unavailable: Kevin Brown, Bryson Goodwin, Ben Westwood

  • Warrington were given a huge scare by Wakefield despite racing into an early 18-point lead as they held on to win by just two points with Danny Brough’s attempted conversion to level the scores hitting the post.

  • The Wolves could opt to rotate their options on the bench for this contest after hooker Danny Walker earned a recall to the 17 last week but any changes will come from the same 19-man squad that they named last week.

  • Tom Lineham will be eager to come back into the side against his former club but is set to miss out once again barring any late withdrawals through injury whilst Harvey Livett will come in if Warrington opt to go without a hooker on the bench.

THE PREDICTION

Hull bounced back from their loss against Wakefield as they managed to grind out a hard-fought win over London but face a much stiffer test here. After they were given a huge scare last week, Warrington will want to shore up their defence and although it will be a tight game, they can edge this. Hull come into the game off a short turnaround and are missing some of their form players from the start of the season whilst Warrington have enjoyed three extra days to recover which will prove to be the difference.
