Hull FC head coach Lee Radford has named his 19-man-squad for Saturday’s Super League match against Salford.
With just four regular season games to go, the race for the play-offs is heating up, and with Hull having three of those four games at home, there’s an obvious need to reinstate home comforts for a decent league finish.
To do that Hull are boosted with the returns of Sika Manu and Mickey Paea. Jack Brown is also in the squad having come in late at Wakefield.
Mark Minichiello is absent with a groin strain, whereas Jack Logan and Kieran Buchanan also drop out the squad.
New signing Tevita Satae, who was named in last weeks squad but didn’t make the match-day line up, is included once again.
Jake Connor is named despite leaving Wakefield in a protective boot on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Albert Kelly (ribs), Joe Westerman (illness), Matty Dawson-Jones (ACL), Levy Nzoungou (hamstring), and Andre Savelio (foot) are still out injured.
