FC and KR ready for first Hull derby since 2016


The Hull derby is back on our screens this year as Hull KR host bitter city rivals Hull FC on Friday lunchtime.

The Rovers lost heavily against league leaders St Helens last time out, while the Black and Whites won 42-16 over the leagues bottom side Catalans Dragons.

Hull KR make one change to their squad as George Lawler is out with a dislocated ankle, which paves the way for Shaun Lunt to make his return after being out for a month with a knee injury.

While for Hull FC, they make two changes with Danny Houghton, back for the first time since their Australia tour, and Mickey Paea returning to the squad in place of Dean Hadley and Jack Logan.

The match will kick off at 12.50pm and the referee will be Chris Kendall.
