Thursday 26th August 2021
This evening is the turn of all three of our rugby league teams to return to the field. Hull FC and Hull Kingston Rovers are still in playoff contention and hope to have a good run to the end of the season. Beverley ARLFC hope to finally get back to winning ways.
Following the Hull derby, Hull FC hope to build on a potentially season-defining victory. Brett Hodgson will be without Reynolds and Cator with Achilles and knee injuries respectively. Satae and Fonua return to the 21-man squad after missing the previous fixture. Their opponents at the MKM Stadium, Castleford have been on a good run of form with three wins in a row including beating Leeds and St Helens.
Hull Kingston Rovers hope to return to winning ways after defeat in the derby on Saturday afternoon. The Robins are still in with a chance of reaching the play-offs. Tony Smith will be missing Hadley with a season-ending injury and Storton the return date of the young forward is unknown. Wakefield have had mixed results in recent weeks, an inconsistent side but have beaten Warrington and ran Catalans close in the last couple of games.
Beverley ARLFC will travel a short distance to take on Hull Dockers. The Blue and Golds have been on a difficult run of form and are without a win since a victory on the second day of the season. Tony Spence is expected to name a somewhat youthful side once again. Despite the status of the Dockers they have not had a great season.
