Hull close in on title

Hull go into this home game against Lymm knowing that a maximum points victory would see them one point from guaranteed promotion.

Their opponents have had a moderate season by their standards but should maintain the league status. 

Last week’s resounding home win against Alnwick showed they can turn in some solid performances.

Hull will have Harvey Harding back to compete with Rob Watts for the scrum-half berth and number eight Joe Stafford is hoping to be fit from his muscle strain.

Tomasi Tanumi is back in the mix and his versatility as a three-quarter or half-back means that he will feature at some stage.

Hull have won 21 games in succesion and will look to increase that tally on Saturday.

Hull have had a solid scrummage all season and despite the fact that they have quite a young average age, they have more than held their own in the loose.

A 50-point away to Lymm in this season’s first meeting may not be so easily achieved this week, but if Hull fire on all cylinders it is hard to see how Lymm can reverse the result of earlier this season.
