Hull FC have announced Jake Connor has won Player of the Month, and Cameron Scott has won Try of the Month for February.

Connor played in two of Hull’s three matches in February. Firstly, against Wakefield, he assisted a try for Darnell McIntosh, before being sent off.

As a result of the suspension he picked up for that red card, he missed their defeat against St Helens. However, he would return to great effect against Salford.

Connor would score one try, two goals and lay on six assists for his teammates in their 48-16 victory over the Red Devils.

Meanwhile, Scott’s second try in that win over Salford won the club’s try of the month award. He was able to chip over the top and chase down the kick to score.

However, in that same match, he went off with an injury, and has been ruled out for three months.

Connor named for trip to Leeds

On Tuesday, Hull announced their squad for their trip to Leeds on Thursday night. They are looking to bounce back following their second defeat of the season at Castleford.

Head Coach Brett Hodgson has been forced to make three changes to his squad. The Black and Whites have 10 first team players unavailable this week.

Josh Reynolds and Jordan Lane both suffered injuries in Sunday’s defeat at Castleford. Centre Connor Wynne is doubtful having suffered an arm injury.

Winger Darnell McIntosh missed last week’s game due to a calf issue, so he will face a couple of weeks on the sidelines.

Carlos Tuimavave, Manu Ma’u, Cameron Scott, Scott Taylor and Jacob Hookem all remain out. Captain Luke Gale continues to serve his five-match suspension.

There is some positive injury news for Hull though. Joe Cator comes in for the first since since suffering an Achilles injury last August.
