Preview: Hull v Huddersfield

Hull FC Head Coach Richard Agar has named an unchanged squad for Friday’s visit of Huddersfield Giants to the KC Stadium.

After an impressive victory over St.Helens last weekend, Agar has opted for the same group of players he named for that clash.

Sean Long will be looking to continue his superb form following an emphatic Man of the Match performance against his former club last weekend, while it will be the battle of the big men against the Giants, with the likes of Epalahame Lauaki and Mark O’Meley no doubt set for important roles.

Danny Washbrook and Jordan Turner are both named in the squad once again, despite missing out on the final cut for against Saints, but they both highlight the options Richard Agar has at his disposal.

There is no place for winger Mark Calderwood who is still out injured, otherwise, Agar has picked from a fully fit squad.

Meanwhile, former FC player Graeme Horne makes a rapid return to the KC Stadium having signed for Huddersfield in the closed season and looks set to face his brother Richard

The in-form 2009 Man of Steel Brett Hodgson will be looking to continue where he left off against Bradford, while young winger Leroy Cudjoe is also included once again after impressing against the Bulls.

Hull FC: Berrigan, T Briscoe, Cusack, Dowes, Fitzgibbon, Hall, Horne, Houghton, Lauaki, Long, Manu, O’Meley, Radford, Tansey, Tickle, Turner, Washbrook, Whiting, Yeaman.

Huddersfield Giants: B. Hodgson, Cudjoe, Lolesi, Whaturia, D. Hodgson, Brown, Robinson, Crabtree, Lunt, Gilmour, Fa’alogo, Raleigh, D. Griffin, Lawrence, Faiumu, Grix, Aspinwall, Patrick, Horne.
