Hull aim for win at Wilmslow

Hull take on Wilmslow this week, whose only successes have been a win and a draw against Vale of Lune who sit at the foot of the table. 

Hull came up against a solid Blaydon side last week and despite emerging with a narrow victory, they know that every side who they confront will look to frustrate the league leaders. 

Hull have an injury doubt as full-back Lee Birch has a pulled muscle but everyone else is ready to go into the mix.

Prop Don Hardman, scrum-half Rob Watts and back row forward Rupert Kay are likely starters as coach Gary Pearce looks to utilise his squad.

Winger Callum Lancaster is now recovered from his operation and rejoins the squad and ensures that Hull’s back three will have plenty of pace.

Ali Heard is now available and he could return in the centres where he has performed very well for some years now.

Hull will be aware that Wilmslow have run several sides close and would be delighted to pour cold water over Hull’s plans.

Hull should have too much for the Cheshire side but will probably need a maximum points haul to maintain their nine-point lead.
