Pack back to full strength for Luctonians trip

Hull take on a resurgent Luctonians who have battled hard to escape the bottom three and recent victories against Stourbridge, Loughborough Students and Sheffield Tigers has seen them climb up the table.
Hull will have their very effective back row of Will Hall, Tom O’Donnell and Latu Makaafi in place.
Not only do they play a full part in their defensive roles but in O’Donnell and Makaafi they have regular try scorers.
Hull’s front five have been solid this season, but their pack will need to  be firing on all cylinders to make sure they have the edge over a Luctonians side who are a different proposition from the one that confronted Hull in the drawn game earlier in the season.
For Hull, Rob Watts comes in at scrum-half while captain Ali Heard should start at centre.
This is a really tough fixture, but Hull have enough ability to take the points if they can find their way through a very solid Luctonians defence.
