SUPER LEAGUE PREVIEW | ROUND 7 | HULL FC vs CATALANS DRAGONS

Two teams with disappointing starts to the 2018 Super League campaign are Hull FC and Catalans Dragons. Catalan lurk in bottom spot and Hull have lost their last two games.

TEAM FORM GUIDE

HULL FC

After last weekend’s 24-8 loss to Salford, the Black and Whites will be looking to kick-start their season again and start making a move up the table if they want one of those elusive top 4 spots. 

CATALANS DRAGONS

Losing 26-0 to Warrington last Saturday at home was a definite low point for the Dragons. They need to start picking up some points soon or they will be heading for the Qualifiers once again.

SQUAD NEWS

HULL FC

The Black and White welcome back halfback Albert Kelly into the mix. He has been missing since picking up a head-knock against Castleford a month ago. 19-year-old Jordan Lane remains in the 19-man squad for the third week. Danny Houghton, Sika Manu and Mickey Paea all remain on the injury list.

CATALANS DRAGONS

Jason Baitieri and Jodie Broughton return to the Catalan side and Samisoni Langi is also available. Dropping out are Louis Anderson, Vincent Duport and Benjamin Jullien. 

PREVIEW

In 2017, Catalan got the better of Hull twice last season, beating the Black and Whites 16-14 at the KCOM Stadium and 23-18 at home in May.

Catalan have played two away games in 2018 and lost both. Hull’s 4 points so far have both come in home wins.
