Hull FC name squad for Thursday’s tie at Huddersfield

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

The Black and Whites travel to West Yorkshire knowing a win would put them just one point behind the top four.

But to do that they’ll have to negotiate proceedings without experienced back rower Sika Manu, who picked up a dangerous contact charge for an incident in the win over Widnes and is banned for three games.

Dean Hadley makes the cut despite hurting his shoulder last week.

In-form duo Jake Connor is named against his former club, with fellow England star Scott Taylor ready to carry on his sensational recent form.

Chris Green returns from an elbow infection and Jamie Shaul is out with a foot injury.

There is some good news too, with Joe Westerman, Marc Sneyd and Fetuli Talanoa all targeting a return before the end of the month.

Hull Starting XIII: 2. Bureta Faraimo, 3. Carlos Tuimavave, 6. Albert Kelly, 8. Scott Taylor, 9. Danny Houghton, 11. Dean Hadley, 12. Mark Minichiello, 14. Jake Connor, 15. Chris Green, 17. Danny Washbrook, 20. Brad Fash, 22. Jez Litten, 23. Mickey Paea, 24. Jack Logan, 26. Jordan Lane, 27. Jack Downs, 28. Hakim Miloudi, 29. Masimbaashe Matongo, 30. Cameron Scott.
