Hull FC vs St Helens Super League Round 21 Preview

Saints include Ben Barba , ryan Morgan and Tom Makinson in their nineteen for Friday nights crucial encounter at Hull ( kick off 19.45) whilst Hull hope to preserve a superb home record this season having only lost a single game to Wigan two weeks ago.

The blistering form of St. Helens sees them stretching their lead in super league to six points and hull will be looking to take this prized scalp .

For the Airlie Birds Jordan Abdul returns from injury and Jansin Turgut and Jordan Lane are recalled to the squad , replacing youngsters Brad Fash and Jez Litten .

Hull still have a sizeable injury list with mercurial full back Jamie Shaul still out along with key backs Josh Griffin , Fetuli Talanoa and Mark Sneyd. Sika Manu also misses the game serving the 2nd game of his 3 match suspension .
This will be a tough game on a warm Friday evening and Hull will be looking to see a little more involvement from Albert Kelly. Faraimo and Miloudi will be a danger from any position and young centre Cameron Scott is proving to be a classy player who is also strong in defence .

watch out also for Matango down the middle, a really impressive young forward.

For Saints there is danger and potential all over the pitch and Adam Swift will be looking to add to his treble of last week. James Roby has been superb from the dummy half in recent weeks and the Saints pack is big and mobile

I’m expecting Danny Richardson To provide plenty of opportunity for Grace and and Swift on the flanks with his kicking game and of course Barba and Lomax  will be a constant threat

This will be an enthralling encounter but the saints are on a roll and should take this game by 14 points
