Hull FC welcome back three key players

Hull FC will welcome back captain Gareth Ellis for Friday’s clash against Huddersfield Giants after nearly three months injured.

The Black and Whites’ skipper has been out since the end of April with a sternum injury and will be hoping to get minutes under his belt before next week’s Challenge Cup semi-final.

Lee Radford is also able to recall Chris Green, who hasn’t played since the start of June, and Albert Kelly after he missed last week’s defeat against Leeds.

1. Jamie Shaul , 2. Mahe Fonua , 3. Carlos Tuimavave , 4. Josh Griffin , 5. Fetuli Talanoa, 6. Albert Kelly, 7. Marc Sneyd, 8. Scott Taylor, 9. Danny Houghton, 10. Liam Watts, 12.
