Hull trio set for August return

James Gordon

Hull are hopeful that new signing Hame Lauaki will finally make his debut in the next few weeks.

The Tongan international only arrived at the club mid-season following a long visa delay and hasn’t played any rugby since February.

However, after a visit to the club surgeon, he received the all clear following an arm injury and is now working his way back to match fitness.

Hull are hoping to have him in contention for their game against Catalans in August, and they are also hopeful of a return to action for Tom Briscoe and Danny Washbrook in the same game.
