Hull FC name squad for London friendly

Hull FC head coach Lee Radford has named a 24-man squad for Sunday’s friendly against London at Brantingham Park – 2pm kick off.

It’s a stronger squad than last week’s opening friendly at Halifax, and features several additional first team players.

New signings Mahe Fonua and Ligi Sao will play, as will Chris Satae.

Marc Sneyd, Jamie Shaul, Bureta Faraimo, and Carlos Tuimavave are also named.

Andre Savelio is given another chance to prove his match fitness, as is Matty Dawson-Jones.

Reserves stars Ben McNamara, Charlie Patterson-Lund, Jack Brown, Kieran Buchanan, Elliot Windley and Jacob Hookem will be given further chances to impress, as will the on-trial Eldon Myers.

Jack Sanderson is also included after a fine second half against Halifax last week.

There is however no Jordan Johnstone, meaning Joe Cator will likely play at hooker.

Hull Squad: 1. Jamie Shaul, 2 Bureta Faraimo, 3. Carlos Tuimavave, 4. Josh Griffin, 7. Marc Sneyd, 10. Chris Satae, 13. Ligi Sao, 14. Albert Kelly, 15. Joe Cator, 17. Matty Dawson-Jones, 19. Masimbaashe Matongo, 20. Brad Fash, 21. Jordan Lane, 23. Andre Savelio, 24. Mahe Fonua, 26. Kieran Buchanan, 30. Jack Brown, 33. Ratu Naulago, Jack Sanderson, Charlie Patterson-Lund, Eldon Myers, Ben McNamara, Elliot Windley, Jacob Hookem.
