The Black and Whites will also welcome back centre Carlos Tuimavave (hamstring) and prop Josh Bowden (thigh) from their respective injuries.

Youngsters Charlie Severs and Marcus Walker drop out of the squad alongside captain Luke Gale, who starts the first of a five-match suspension.

Forwards Andre Savelio and Kane Evans are both unavailable as they serve the final match of their suspensions.
