Richard Gore previews Hull v Wirral

Hull play their first home fixture of the season when they take on Wirral on Saturday.
Whilst Hull lost by a point on Saturday, Wirral claimed a narrow victory over league newcomers Alnwick.
Hull will be looking to erase the memory of that narrow defeat especially as they outscored Rossendale by four tries to two and could have won by 10 points.
Hull may have new centre Kieran Naylor and last year’s top try scorer, wingman  Steve Hihetah in the squad for the weekend.
Back-row man Hall may start this week after a good performance coming off the bench last week.
Second-rower Liam Regardsoe may be rested following a leg injury but Paul Hamber and Cameron Curry are both fit to fill the second row berths.
Hull have much to consider after last week’s reverse but many players performed well and no-one looked out of place.

If Hull can retain the ball in their opponents ‘22’ they should have enough pace, guile and power to add to the two bonus points of last week, with a win.
