THE TEAM NEWS

HULL FC

  • Hull FC secured safe passage to the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup with a straightforward success against Championship outfit Featherstone Rovers last week but there is still plenty to work on for the Black and Whites after a lacklustre second half.
  • New head coach Brett Hodgson has enjoyed a 100% start to life in charge but he will face his biggest test to date in this clash and he is without a handful of key players including Josh Reynolds, Manu Ma’u and Ligi Sao.

21-man squad: Bowden, Brown, Cator, Connor, Faraimo, Fash, Ferreira, Fonua, Griffin, Houghton, Johnstone, Lane, McNamara, Satae, Savelio, Scott, Sneyd, Swift, Taylor, Tuimavave, Vulikijapani

Unavailable: Jamie Shaul, Masi Matongo, Ligi Sao, Josh Reynolds, Manu Ma’u

WARRINGTON WOLVES

  • Warrington Wolves made it back-to-back wins thanks to a victory over Swinton Lions in their Challenge Cup clash last week but head coach Steve Price was left far from impressed with his side’s performance and he will want a big response here.
  • The Wolves earned their first Super League win of the season after comfortably seeing off Leigh Centurions in their previous outing and while they will hope to build on that, they are still without new recruit Greg Inglis who remains short of fitness.

21-man squad: Akauola, Ashton, Austin, Butler, Charnley, D. Clark, J. Clark, Cooper, Currie, Davis, Hill, Hughes, King, Mamo, Mulhern, Philbin, Ratchford, Thewlis, Walker, Widdop, Wrench

Unavailable: Greg Inglis, Tom Lineham

THE PREDICTION

Hull FC can get a real gauge of where they are in this intriguing clash with Warrington Wolves. The Black and Whites have made a fine start to the early stages of this campaign but this is their biggest test yet as they take on the Wolves. Both teams will hope to be competing for the play-offs come the end of the season and while there is still plenty of improvement for the pair after failing to produce for 80 minutes in their respective Challenge Cup matches last week, Hull have made the more promising start to the year and they can record another victory here to remain unbeaten.
