Hull Kingston Rovers vs Hull FC Magic Weekend Preview


Hull KR travel to Newcastle in search of their first Super League win since the 7th of April, a 31-12 victory over the Widnes Vikings, their neighbours in Black and White however,will be looking to build on their already impressive ladder position, currently sitting in 4th after a good first half of the season.

FC and the Robins met earlier in the year, Hull going down to 12 men within the first ten minutes before eventually overcoming KR 30-22 after yet more controversy. The Robins will be looking for their first Hull derby win since May 2014 as they look to move a little closer to getting out of the bottom 4. 

A lot of Hull first teamers miss out through suspension and injury, Faraimo misses through suspension, while; Albert Kelly, Carlos Tuimavave, Marc Sneyd, Fetuli Talanoa, Brad Fash and Jordan Abdull are also in the Black and White's casualty ward. They are replace by debutants Liam Harris and Cameron Scott while Kirk Yeaman comes out of retirement to make his 375th appearance for the club. The Rovers too have their own growing wounded list as Danny McGuire is ruled out with a blood clott and Robbie Mulhern is missing too alongside Shaun Lunt.
Hull Kingston Rovers: Adam Quinlan, Junior Vaivai, Ryan Shaw, Mose Masoe, Maurice Blair, James Greenwood, Ben Kavanagh, James Donaldson, Chris Clarkson, Tommy Lee, Liam Salter, Josh Johnson, Chris Atkin, Kieren Moss, Jordan Walne, Joe Cator, Danny Tickle, Elliot Wallis, Aaron Smith.

Hull FC: Jamie Shaul, Josh Griffin, Scott Taylor, Danny Houghton, Dean Hadley, Mark Minichiello, Jake Connor, Chris Green, Danny Washbrook, Sika Manu, Jez Litten, Mickey Paea, Jack Logan, Hakim Miloudi, Masi Matongo, Cameron Scott, Joe Westerman, Kirk Yeaman, Liam Harris.

Both teams are without key players for this fixture, but neither side will back down in this fiery meeting between local rivals. I'm going to back the Black and White's for this game, overall I feel they still have more than enough strength to overcome a fiesty Robins' side, Hull by 7-12 points.
