Hull FC take on St Helens for the second time in a week after Saints eased past the Airlie Birds in their most recent Super League outing. The Black and Whites last won the competition in 2017 while Saints have to go back to 2008 for their last Challenge Cup success when they beat Saturday’s opponents in the final.
Brett Hodgson makes one change to his 21-man squad with Connor Wynne coming in for loose forward Joe Cator who suffered a calf strain against Saints last time out.
Kristian Woolf includes wings Tommy Makinson and Regan Grace in his 21-man squad as he makes two changes from last week’s win against the Airlie Birds. Mark Percival and Ben Davies drop out, the former sidelined through a hamstring injury.
Saints by four points.
