Can Hull be the first to beat league leaders?

Hull make the long trip to Stourbridge to take on the table topping islanders.

Having beaten Loughborough Students and Luctonians, Stourbridge have 10 points and will prove tough opponents for Hull.
Director of rugby Gary Pearce has been pleased with the performances of his Hull side who remain unbeaten themselves after two games and have shown themselves capable of scoring tries from anywhere on the field.
Scrum-half Rob Watts is unavailable as he has a slight concession but Harvey Harding should be available and he has a lot of experience of rugby in the national leagues including some man of the match awards last season.

Hull will have a strong squad to call upon his week and they will be looking to continue their unbeaten run.

Line-out possession will be important and Hull have done well in this phase of the game so far his season.

If this trend can be maintained and turnovers against them kept to minimum, Hull have attacking options that will put pressure on their hosts.

Off-half Simon Humberstone’s tactical awareness and sound goal kicking will be important factors in ensuring that best use is made of the ball and Hull certainly will be looking to come away with something from this second away trip of the season.
