Hull FC vs Catalans Dragons Super 8's Round 6 Preview

This has been a profoundly disappointing campaign for a Hull team who promised so much and yet delivered so little in this super league season.

A catalogue of defeats ,poor performances and  lack lustre displays have seen chairman Adam Pearson rightly launch a tirade of critisism against some of his team.

They have an opportunity at least to  appease their supporters in Saturdays game against the Catalan Dragons at the KCOM stadium ( kick off 17.00).

Hull have been plagued by injuries but still include Jamie Shaul, Jake Connor and Carlos Tuimavave in the nineteen. Yet a disastrous series have losses have resulted in this season being a damp squib for the Airlie Birds.

Catalans season has at times been poor, but the majestic win in the challenge cup final has Brought some glory to the Frenchmen this year. Kenny Edwards and Josh Drinkwater have revitalised the season for the Dragons and Tony Gigot and the ever impressive Michael Mcillorum would enhance any super league team.

The visitors are without Mickael Simon and Ben Garcia and there is hope for next season for the home team who include Lewis Biernek in the nineteen.

This is a seventh place versus eighth place game with nothing to play for except pride. Coach Lee Radford will be expecting to see that in abundance on Saturday or some of these players may be playing at other clubs next season.

With that in mind I expect Hull to score heavily and take this game by 30-34 points
