Hull leave the weekly league programme to play their Yorkshire Cup game against Huddersfield YMCA who sit a couple of leagues below Hull.
Gary Pearce has said that he is looking to give players like fly-half Steve Johnston returning from injury and winger George Fossey who needs game time to get back to full match fitness.
Hull will be hoping to progress to the next round and should have enough in the tank to overcome their West Riding rivals.
They will need to start well and keep up a good suuply of the ball and respect the ball.
Hull should win but a slow start saw them lose a league fixture which was a real upset only 18 months ago.
The warning signs need to be heeded if they are to ensure their name goes into the draw for the next round.
