Hull FC vs Widnes Vikings Super League Round 19 Preview

Hull look to add to the woes of widnes vikings on Friday night ( 20.00) and see the return of the reliable dean Hadley and kiwi international forward sika Manu .

Jamie Shaul also returns after injury as well as Jake Connor and Scott Taylor returning from international duty in Denver

Connor of course will be buoyant, after demonstrating in full his ability to hold his own at international level  and hull with additional  strike weapons  on the flanks in butch Faraimo and hakim miloudi  will be ultra confident of taking the spoils in this game . Love him or hate him Connor will have too much in the tank for a struggling widnes back line and will be looking to build on his growing international reputation.

With Albert Kelly and Danny houghton running the show in the middle the Vikings bring in talented young winger Owen Buckley .

There is still no place however for the injured Wellington Albert and the Vikings coach Francis Cummins has a limited squad from which to select  . A run of defeats has however resulted in 5 changes to the team that took on wakefield trinity.

Toulouse bound Patrick ah van returns to the wing with key man Rhys hansbury also returning alongside Tom Olbison and Danny craven .

Four youngsters namely ashall-bolt ,ryan  ince , Jordan Johnson and brad walker make way along with the experienced Stefan marsh .

Long term absentees lloyd white, hep Cahill and Chris dean remain absent through injury.

In front of a home crowd on what promises to be a warm Friday evening it’s going to be very challenging for the Vikings to contain a fast moving hull backline .

What chances on a Connor treble to sink the Vikings and leave them firmly rooted to the bottom of the table .

Keep an eye out however for the huge and skilful jay chapplehow and the dynamic dummy half Danny walker

My prediction is hull by 22
