1st Team, Home

Richard Gore’s match preview

Hull return to league duties this week after their convincing victory over Huddersfield YMCA last Saturday.
Hull have been scoring freely this season and their last two outings have produced a points tally of 125 for and just five against.
However in Billingham they will face a test of a completely different nature.
The North Easteners are another side prepared to play an open style of rugby and have, like Hull, lost to Lymm but put over 40 points past Morley in recent weeks.
Billingham sit just five points behind Hull so a maximum points victory would see them move level on points with their hosts this weekend.
Hull should have influential number eight Joe Stafford back this week and Lee Briers will return to the squad to go into the mix for the backrow and second row places.
Hull have developed into a team whose handling has been good throughout the side with some excellent forward off loads creating scoring opportunities.
A potent back division  has seen winger Stephen Hihetah score try hat-tricks in consecutive weeks.
Nevertheless any side can only play as well as the opposition allow and Hull will have to pay full respect to Saturday’s opponents if they are to remain in the top three at the end of the game.
