Hull FC vs Leeds Rhinos Super League Round 12 Preview


The Black and White's will be out for revenge over the Rhinos after the controversial manner in which they lost their away fixture earlier in the season. Hull are in good form losing just 2 of their last 6 games, Leeds however, come into this fixture with 3 wins in their last 6 after a truly stinging loss to Wigan last week, the Rhinos will certainly be out to atone for their sins.

The margin of less than 6 points, this sets us up for another potentially very tight fixture. FC's last victory over the Rhinos in Super League coming all the way back on the 12th of September 2014, another close game finishing 24-19.

Brad Dwyer has been ruled out by injury after scans revealed his elbow injury was worse than previously thought, he's replaced by Brett Ferres as the only change to the Rhinos 19. Danny Washbrook, Jordan Abdull and Jack Downs all make way for the returning Dean Hadley, Mark Minichello and Sika Manu all return from injury to give the Hull pack a massive boost.

Hull FC: Jamie Shaul, Bureta Faraimo,Carlos Tuimavave, Josh Griffin, Fetuli Talanoa, Albert Kelly, Marc Sneyd, Scott Taylor, Danny Houghton, Dean Hadley, Mark Minichiello, Josh Bowden, Jake Connor, Chris Green, Sika Manu, Jez Litten, Mickey Paea, Jordan Lane, Masi Matongo

Leeds Rhinos: Ashton Golding, Tom Briscoe, Kallum Watkins, Ryan Hall, Joel Moon, Richie Myler, Adam Cuthbertson, Matt Parcell, Brad Singleton, Jamie Jones-Buchanan, Carl Ablett, Stevie Ward, Brett Delaney, Anthony Mullally, Brett Ferres, Ash Handley, Cameron Smith, Mikolaj Oledzki, Josh Walters.


I'm very tempted to back FC in this match, both sides will have different motives to coming into the game, Leeds will have festered of the back of last week's defeat on mistakes made and will be desperate to redeem themselves. Hull will be equally as desperate after feeling like they were robbed in the first game, I'm backing FC by a margin of 0-6.
