Hull FC vs Castleford Tigers Super 8's Round 4 Preview


Hull have a lot of making up to do after what many have reffered to as the most frustrating and disappointing performance they have ever seen out of a Hull outfit, Castleford however, a strong showing as they knocked off the Challenge Cup winners.

It's one a piece in 2018 between these two clubs, Hull taking the most recent meeting between these two clubs a 36-12 win against a Castleford side running low on numbers. The Tigers taking the spoils at the Mend-A-Hose in round 3 of the season with a 28-18 win, Castleford holding the majority share of the wins in recent meetings, winning 3 of the last 5.

Lee Radford only makes one change to the side that disappointed last week, Cameron Scott coming into the squad for the injured Mickey Paea. Daryl Powell has shown faith in the 19 men that did the job last week, sticking with the same squad that ran out winners against Catalans last week. 

Hull FC: Jamie Shaul, Bureta Faraimo, Carlos Tuimavave, Josh Griffin, Fetuli Talanoa,  Scott Taylor, Danny Houghton, Dean Hadley, Jordan Abdull, Danny Washbrook, Brad Fash, Sika Manu, Jez Litten, Jordan Lane, Hakim Miloudi, Masi Matongo, Cameron Scott, Liam Harris, Lewis Bienek.

Castleford Tigers  James Clare, Mitch Clark, Greg Eden, Luke Gale, Oliver Holmes, Will Maher, Nathan Massey, Peter Mata’utia, Mike McMeeken, Paul McShane, Grant Millington, Adam Milner, Junior Moors, Ben Roberts, Michael Shenton, Jake Trueman , Joe Wardle, Liam Watts, Jake Webster.

I'm predicting a Castleford win in this fixture, Hull are a down and ut side at the moment, even opting to field Jordan Abdull, a player who within 24 hours of the Warrington loss handed in a transfer request, morale, numbers and ability are low in the Hull ranks right now and this is why I call this Castleford by 13+.
