Salford vs Hull FC Super League Round 6 Preview


Salford face yet another difficult fixture after a tough game against Castleford last week, the task not made any easier by the loss of Gareth O'Brien to the Toronto Wolfpack, however, Hull will see this as an opportunity to gain two points that they should have had last week.

Hull have a very good record against Salford, winning four of the last five meetings between the two sides and by a margin of 14+ points, this statistic will certainly give Salford players cause for concern. Hull showed last week that even with their injury ward full, they are still a very dangerous side, although it's been a week that has seen a fan favourite leave, two more have signed extensions, Carlos Tuimavave and Masi Matongo, this will boost spirits in the Hull camp. Salford too have seen a notable departure, Gareth O'Brien left for Toronto on Tuesday, leaving very large boots to be filled.

The Black and White's are still without Danny Houghton, Albert Kelly and now Sika Manu after he sustained a calf injury in last week's loss to Leeds, his spot is filled by the returning Josh Bowden.
Salford - Greg Johnson, Kris Welham, Junior Sa'u, Niall Evalds, Robert Lui, Jack Littlejohn, Craig Kopczak, Logan Tomkins, Josh Jones, Weller Hauraki, Mark Flanagan, Lama Tasi, Luke Burgess, Tyrone McCarthy, Ben Nakubuwai, Josh Woods, Derrell Olpherts, Lee Mossop, Jake Bibby.

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

Based on Hull's existing record I'm going to have to back the Black and White's in this fixture, Salford will come out swinging in usual tenacious fashion, however, the recent performances of Jake Connor and co make Hull a side to be feared even with some of their most experienced players missing. I'm predicting Hull win by 12+ points.
