Hull FC name squad for Cup semi-final

Hull FC head coach Lee Radford has named his 19-man-squad for Saturday’s huge Challenge Cup semi-final against Warrington.

There is just the one change as the messiah Albert Kelly is back in the squad after missing the last two games with a hamstring injury. Dean Hadley drops out.

Marc Sneyd, match winner at Headingley, is also named, alongside Gareth Ellis who made his first appearance at Leeds since having 40 stitches around his eye socket.

The game comes too soon though for Andre Savelio who is nursing a foot problem.

There are further welcome returns with both Masimbaashe Matongo and Jack Logan named in the Reserves squad to play Featherstone. You can see the full side here.

Warrington are missing Stefan Ratchford and Kevin Brown to injury, with Setafeki Akauola suspended. Ryan Atkins is out of favour, as is Ben Westwood.

  1. Pre-game, I think that FC’s defence has to be much better than of late, spot-on in-fact. Do that and I believe that we have the firepower to beat Wire, especially if our Pack does the business with Sneyd and Kelly on their game, as they must be. Connor is a bonus ! We have to play as a team, with 100% spirit if we want to get to Wembley again. I say FC by a few points. COYH !!!
