Warrington Wolves vs Hull FC Super 8's Round 3 Preview

Warrington need to demonstrate that they can bounce back from a very disappointing Wembley defeat last weekend. Their home support will expect a big response against a hull team who have dipped in form in the last month.

Wolves coach Steve Price does nt need to make wholesale changes although veteran Aussie Ben Pomeroy comes in For the injured Ben Murdoch Masila , Ryan Atkins returns from injury and recent signing Bodene Thompson is included.

Hull look to put a halt to a disastrous run of form which has resulted in six consecutive defeats. That is hardly Going to inspire a grand final appearance and they need to reverse that slump on Thursday evening .

Big prop Chris Green is out injured but the young Londoner Lewis Bienek is included in the nineteen. Bienek is a man mountain and is destined to have a wonderful future at Hull, although the visitors will be hard pressed to defeat a hungry and determined wolves team.

Saturdays Wembley display by the Wolves was in no way poor as this was a classical Wembley display from both teams .I expect halves Kevin Brown and Tyrone Roberts to dominate this game . Hull have suffered tremendously through injuries and Albert Kelly and Mark Sneyd especially have been missed.

Hull still have impressive performers in Bureta Faraimo, Jamie Shaul, Hakim Miloudi and Fetuli Talanoa and they will test the warrington back line throughout the game.

However I firmly expect that Steve Price will motivate his players sufficiently and the Wolves should take this game by 18-22 points with flying wingers Tom Lineham and Josh Charnley featuring strongly .

kick off is 7.45 on Thursday evening at the Halliwell Jones
