THE TEAM NEWS

LEIGH CENTURIONS

  • Leigh Centurions almost pulled off a mighty upset but they just fell short in their quest to topple Catalans Dragons last week as their losing streak was extended to ten matches but there were signs in that game that a first win of the season is not too far off.
  • The Centurions pushed the French outfit all the way in an entertaining clash but they must find some defensive resolve to back-up last week’s attacking exploits having now allowed an eye-watering 352 points on their return to Super League.

21-man squad: Bell, Brierley, Elliot, Ellis, Gee, Hellewell, Hood, Ioane, Mason, McCarthy, Mellor, Mullen, Peats, Peteru, Reynolds, Russell, Sa’u, Sidlow, Thornley, Tierney, Wildie

Unavailable: Tom Spencer, Blake Wallace, Keenan Brand, Ben Flower, Alex Gerrard, Jordan Thompson

Questionable:

HULL FC

  • Hull FC bounced back from their Challenge Cup semi-final disappointment by recording a comfortable success over Castleford Tigers last week but that victory came at a cost which could be telling here.
  • The Black and Whites have just 18 players available to them this week as their injury list continues to mount but while there is plenty of talent on the sidelines, they will still believe they have enough to see off the winless hosts.

18-man squad: Brown, Connor, Faraimo, Fash, Fonua, Houghton, Johnstone, Lane, Ma’u, McNamara, Reynolds, Sao, Satae, Savelio, Sneyd, Swift, Vulikijapani, Wynne

Unavailable: Jamie Shaul, Masi Matongo, Scott Taylor, Joe Cator, Josh Griffin, Josh Bowden, Carlos Tuimavave, Cameron Scott

THE PREDICTION

Leigh Centurions will have been content with their showing against Catalans Dragons last week but they are still without that elusive victory as their losing streak extended to ten Super League matches. They will believe that success is not too far away after showing some promising signs in that game which also came on the back of a solid performance against Wakefield Trinity and now facing an under-strength Hull FC side, this could be the week they break their duck. The away side are suffering from some big injury problems with Mitieli Vulikijapani set to debut as a result but the 17 they field should still be strong enough to make it back-to-back wins.
