Hull take on another side in the lower echelons of the division this week.
Kendal have had a tough season but will have realistic hopes of avoiding relegation. It seems Wilmslow though are resigned to the drop which leaves Hull’s opponents this week in a battle with three other sides to maintain their league status.
Kendal were in the game past the hour mark in the corresponding fixture before Christmas so they need to be respected.
Hull welcome back scrum-half Harvey Harding, off-half Simon Humberstone, and back row forward Tom O’Donnell giving the squad a well-balanced feel.
Hull will hope to have too much power and pace for Kendal and if they get on top early, they could build a score.
However, they will need to protect the ball and ensure they retain their own set piece possession to build pressure.
A 13-point lead at the top of the league is a tribute to a lot of hard work but sides like Kendal need any points they can get and they will be ready to take advantage of any mistakes Hull may make.
However, the most likely result is a Hull victory to see them consolidate their position as league leaders.
