Hull FC name squad for Leeds

Hull FC head coach Lee Radford has named his 19-man-squad for Thursday’s Super League match at Leeds.

The Black and Whites haven’t won at Headingley since 2007, but head into the clash following a welcome two points last time out.

However, they’ll be without props Mickey Paea, Josh Bowden and Liam Watts, plus half back Albert Kelly, who hasn’t recovered from a knock suffered against Castleford.

Club captain Danny Houghton is still out with a calf injury, and winger Bureta Faraimo is also absent after picking up a head knock. That’s five key players injured, and one suspended.

As a result young outside back Jack Logan is named, and there is a place for Jordan Lane once again.

Fellow youngsters Brad Fash and Masimbaashe Matongo keep their places, with Chris Green within a shout for a first competitive appearance of the year following injury, and then the birth of his daughter.

Back rowers Jack Downs and Jansin Turgut are also included.

Leeds meanwhile are missing Liam Sutcliffe, Adam Cuthbertson, Stevie Ward, Brett Ferres and Jimmy Keinhorst, but as you can see below, have a few stars back following their defeat at Widnes two weeks ago.

Hull Squad: 1. Jamie Shaul, 3. Carlos Tuimavave, 4. Josh Griffin, 5. Fetuli Talanoa, 7. Marc Sneyd, 8. Scott Taylor, 11. Dean Hadley, 12. Mark Minichiello, 14. Jake Connor, 15. Chris Green, 16.
