Hull FC vs Catalans Dragons Super League Round 7 Preview


Hull look to bounce back from last week's bitterly disappointing performance against a red hot Salford side, whereas, Catalans travel to Humberside seeking just their 2nd win of the season.


Surprisingly both sides come into this fixture with just 1 win from their last 6 Super League performances. The Dragons have proved to be somewhat of a bogey side for the Black and White's, losing both their 2017 fixtures to the French outfit, both games decided by less than 6 points, these two wins were the first by the Dragons over Hull since early in the 2015 season.


Hull FC welcome back Albert Kelly from injury, however, Hull are still missing three big names in the shape of; Danny Houghton, Micky Paea and Sika Manu, all remaining side-lined by injury. The Dragons welcome back; Jodie Broughton, Samisoni Langi and Jason Baitieri, they replace; They replace Louis Anderson, Vincent Duport and Benjamin Jullien.


Hull FC - Jamie Shaul, Bureta Faraimo, Carlos Tuimavave, Josh Griffin,Fetuli Talanoa, Albert Kelly, Marc Sneyd, Scott Taylor, Dean Hadley, Mark Minichiello, Josh Bowden, Jake Connor, Chris Green, Jordan Abdull. Danny Washbrook, Brad Fash, Jack Logan, Jordan Lane, Masi Matongo.



Catalans Dragons - David Mead, Jodie Broughton, Iain Thornley, Brayden Williame, Fouad Yaha, Samisoni Langi, RĂ©mi Casty, Paul Aiton, Sam Moa, Benjamin Garcia, Greg Bird, Julian Bousquet, Mickael Simon, Jason Baitieri, Thibaud Margalet, Michael McIlorum, Lewis Tierney, Lucas Albert, Tony Gigot.


The return of Albert Kelly has 100% swayed this decision, if someone can get Hull 2 points this Friday, it's Albert Kelly. Combine that with the fact that this is the worst I have ever seen Catalans play during their time in Super League, it was one of the easier predictions for me to write, Hull take this on by 12+ points for me.
