Harding fit for Tigers test

Hull RUFC take on fourth placed Sheffield Tigers this week and the away side will be hoping to build on their hard fought 3-3 draw with Luctonians last week.
Sheffield have won five games and lost three and so will be a difficult side for Hull to beat.
Hull have played well in most games this season but would have been concerned by their lack of tries last week.
Against Luctonians, Hull had at least three try scoring chances which they missed last week and this failure to take chances has been something that has worked against them more than once this season.
There is little to choose between most sides in this league so Hull can travel knowing their best game could well see them return with points to show for their efforts.
Laurence Cowen takes over the number eight role with Loma Kivalu returning to the side on the bench.
Hull’s half backs, Harvey Harding and Simon Humberstone are both fit and will be looking to galvanise the side which sees a centre partnership of Tomasi Tanumi and Stephen Johnson start with ever present Ali Heard looking to make an impact as a finisher this week.
Hull’s forwards may well hold the key and if they can take the initiative, Hull’s backs have enough ability to capitalise on their good work.
