Hull FC name squad for the Derby

Hull FC head coach Lee Radford has made two changes to his 21-man-squad for Friday’s Hull Derby.

Danny Houghton is named after recovering from a thumb injury and if selected will make his 350th Hull FC appearance. Masimbaashe Matongo also comes into the squad.

Manu Ma’u and Gareth Ellis aren’t risked after picking up knocks against Leeds and both drop out.

The starman at Headingley, Andre Savelio, will look to dominate the middle again alongside the intimidating presence of Scott Taylor, Ligi Sao, Chris Satae and co.

Jamie Shaul and Ratu Naulago are also included after superb opening day displays.

Albert Kelly and Mahe Fonua, both of whom played for the Reserves side against Bradford, are named once more.

Hull FC Reserves are away at Wigan on Sunday, so whoever doesn’t make the Derby seventeen could get a run out there.

Hull Squad: 1. Jamie Shaul, 2. Bureta Faraimo, 3. Carlos Tuimavave, 4. Josh Griffin, 5. Adam Swift, 6. Jake Connor, 7. Marc Sneyd, 8. Scott Taylor, 9. Danny Houghton, 10. Chris Satae, 11. Josh Jones, 13. Ligi Sao, 14. Albert Kelly, 16. Jordan Johnstone, 19. Masimbaashe Matongo, 20. Brad Fash, 21. Jordan Lane, 22. Josh Bowden, 23. Andre Savelio, 24. Mahe Fonua, 33. Ratu Naulago.
