Big news for Hull FC as Josh Reynolds in latest update

Brett Hodgson will have a plethora of halfbacks at his disposal for the Challenge Cup Quarter-Finals next week.

Josh Reynolds will return for next week’s game against Huddersfield Giants, Sky Sports pundit Jenna Brooks revealed last night.

The Australian halfback has been absent since the 33-26 loss to Castleford back at the start of March.

Since then, Hull have steadily improved, winning four of their last six games in league and cup.

Reynolds was absent last night as Hull narrowly went down 19-18 to the Wigan Warriors.

Hull were winning 12-6 at half-time courtesy of first-half tries from Adam Swift and Danny Houghton, but were pegged back in the second forty minutes as Wigan’s Jai Field registered a stunning effort once more and Harry Smith’s drop-goal just got the Warriors over the line.

Neither Kane Evans nor Carlos Tuimavave were in the team for Brett Hodgson, with Sky Sports pundit Jenna Brooks revealing that both had missed with slight calf issues.

With Luke Gale back in the halves following a five-match ban there was also a question mark over who he would replace.

With Ben McNamara a natural halfback and Joe Lovodua a utility man, it was thought that the former would get the nod.

However, Hodgson named Lovodua alongside Gale in the halves with Mitieli Vulikijapani replacing Carlos Tuimavave at centre.

Connor Wynne was also on the bench – presumably on there in case of an injury amongst the backs.
