Ben closing in on return to action

Hull will be hoping that the rugby gods smile upon them soon as they have gone seven games without a win whilst being in contention in all the games they have played.

Their opponents this week have a record which is almost a mirror image of Hull’s having won all their games by a maximum of just ten points and most of them by less than six points.

The game they lost was by five points to Loughborough which is a similar margin to the one Hull sustained when they just lost themselves to the University side.

In such a competitive league it takes just one error or one moment of magic to turn a game and every side will be looking to eliminate defensive problems but maximise point scoring opportunities.

Hull have had chances to win every game they have played  and perhaps with the exception of Caldy looked capable of taking the points.

Hull will hope to have a full squad at their disposal and it is a difficult task to work out which side will   make that difference to see close defeats turn into victories.

Last week Hull looked a sound side and it is unlikely that they will see many changes for this week. Ben Bootham at tight head prop is close to a return this week which will undoubtedly help bolster the front resources

And with Tom O’Donnell now able to play a full part in the back row Hull will be looking to the pack to impose themselves .

Home advantage may see Hull shade this one against a team who have promotional ambitions.
