Lee Radford has recalled no fewer than seven of his Wembley squad for the visit of Wigan Warriors, after resting them for the visit to St. Helens last week.
Gareth Ellis, Danny Houghton, Marc Sneyd, Mark Minichiello, Kirk Yeaman, Carlos Tuimavave and Scott Taylor all return for the Black & Whites for their first home game since their Wembley heroics.
Hull FC: Jamie Shaul, Mahe Fonua, Carlos Tuimavave, Fetuli Talanoa, Marc Sneyd, Scott Taylor, Danny Houghton, Liam Watts, Gareth Ellis, Mark Minichiello, Chris Green, Jordan Thompson, Dean Hadley, Steve Michaels, Sika Manu, Josh Bowden, Frank Pritchard, Kirk Yeaman, Danny Washbrook
Wigan Warriors: John Bateman, Joe Bretherton, Josh Charnley, Dominic Crosby, Liam Farrell, Ben Flower, Anthony Gelling, Willie Isa, Frank-Paul Nuuausala, Sam Powell, Dan Sarginson, Jake Shorrocks, Matty Smith, Ryan Sutton, Taulima Tautai, Lewis Tierney, Sam Tomkins, Jack Wells, George Wells
The Airlie Birds will want to get back into the winning habit after a very fringe team were beaten last time out at Langtree Park, with the race for the league leaders shield hotting up after Warrington’s win at Catalans.
Wigan will be desperate to put their non-performance against Widnes Vikings to bed with victory against the Challenge Cup winners, and try to reclaim 3rd place from bitter rivals St. Helens in the process.
Their Challenge Cup semi final heartbreak against the men from the KCom Stadium, will also no doubt act as another inspiration for them.
I expect Hull to have too much in the tank for Shaun Wane’s side and win with room to spare.
