Hull make the journey to Newcastle to take on a Blaydon side that has hit the ground running after two years of relegation.
Blaydon certainly see themselves as making quite an impact on the league with a 90-point victory against Vale of Lune in their first match signalled their intent. This was followed up by a good win by a 15-point margin against fellow north easteners Alnwick.
Hull have had mixed fortunes and despite showing some very good signs have not been able to play with the consitency that they need to win regularly in this league.
It is very early days and last week’s weather distorted the game and having outscored their opponents Rossendale the previous week by four tries to two Hull have nothing to fear.
If they can regain their confidence and accuracy of passing and kicking that thaty had for most games last year.
Centre Stev Johnson, prop Dom Hardman and second row Liam Regardsoe all come back into the reckoning.
This gives Hull options and they travel with a very good squad with the ability to provide real momentum from the bench.
Hull have every intention of coming home with something to show for their efforts against the early league leaders.
