Hull FC vs Castleford Tigers Super League Round 2 Preview

What an important Game for Hull FC as they seek their first Super league victory after 12 consecutive losses. Will it be unlucky 13 for a home team who see the return of Jake Connor and Joe Westerman.

Connor returns from suspension and in the absence of Albert Kelly is the key man for the Airlie Birds. Westerman has been impressive for Hull in his displays and he is sure to want a big impact against his former team.

Castleford Tigers will miss England international Mike McKeekan due to a concussion ruling and and of course Luke Gale is out for the season. The Tigers bring in Forward Mitch Clark and utility back Ben Roberts, who were left out of coach Daryl Powell's initial 19-man squad last Friday, and also include impressive young players Tuoyo Egodo and Jacques O'Neill .

The tigers have already made an impressive start to the season and Hull coach Lee Radford will have made note of their very strong defensive display in their 20-4 victory over Catalan Dragons last week
Hull will be determined without any doubt and another loss is almost unthinkable Despite the pressure coach Lee Radford remains upbeat and I would predict a narrow 6-10 Victory for the Hull team
