Hull FC Form
This will be the third time these two sides have met, as well as being a repeat of Hull FC’s last match almost a month ago. Since then, the Giants haven’t won a game after suffering a heavy defeat against League Leaders Catalans, conceding a match to Castleford, and narrowly losing to Wigan twice in consecutive weeks.
Ian Watson’s squad is still depleted but has enough quality to turn their fortunes around against a Hull side who are also missing key players and will be lacking some match fitness. However, the black and whites have been to recall several key players that missed their last outing against the Giants last month and go into the game unbeaten in their last three.
Brett Hodgson's side has found ways to win this year, showing great resilience to grind out results, whereas the Giants have lacked that cutting edge to get on the right side of the scoreline during tight contests.
Prediction: Hull FC by 4
