Beware the new boys of Alnwick, says Richard

This week Hull take on newcomers to Alnwick. The visitors have done well losing three but winning four of their seven fixtures. Hull will note they lost to Kirby Lonsdale who Hull beat by 50 points but last week Alnwick beat Ilkley away by a convincing margin so they can clearly give any side problems on their day.
Hull have threequarters Tomasi Tanumi, Mike Adlard and Joe Martin fit and Dom Hardman rejoins the squad giving the front row more options.

Hull can look back at two victories against sides in the lower reaches of the division with some satisfaction but this week is a different test.

It seems Alnwick have a decent set of forwards and Hull will need to be aware that they need to retain possession and make the right tactical calls to ensure they continue their winning run.

This week will probably see a closer scoreline than of late and Hull will need to work hard to take the points.
