1st Team, Home

Richard Gore’s match preview

Hull have a strong team to travel to Cheshire where they will take on Lymm, a side who have in the past played a brand of fast open rugby.
This season Lymm have only won three games with their most notable victory being against Rossendale early in the season.
Hull’s season in contrast have seen them lose just one game but that was against Rossendale so despite noting Lymm have had a tough season Hull will realise their opponents can ruffle feathers and mix it with better sides on their day.
Hull have Harvey Harding back at scrum-half who replaces Rob Watt who goes onto the bench after some good performances this season.
The backs will have Stephen Hihetah and Mike Adlard on the wings and Lee Birch at full-back and if they get enough ball they will cause problems to any side in this division.
Hull’s pack will ultimately hold the key and props Mike Dias and Ben Bootham have done great work this season in the tight and have never been far away from the close quarter physical confrontations.
Tom Rice takes his place as hooker and completes a combative front row.
Hull’s back five forwards have been having real success in establishing field position and if all the forwards play to their potential, Hull have every chance of continuing their winning run.
However, no side will give in without a fight and Hull will need to keep their concentration as well as manage their game well tactically to ensure they keep at the top of the league on Saturday night.
