Super League

Huge sell out crowd confirmed

Easter is approaching and thus we are in one of the most exciting and enjoyable rounds of Super League action.

That is because it is Rivals Round where every game is shown live on Sky Sports as the biggest games in the league take place.

Things of course peak today on Good Friday with the traditional derbies.

The action starts in Hull with the Hull derby between Hull FC and Hull KR.

Hull FC have now confirmed it is a sell out crowd and will be the biggest home attendance since April 2009 as well as inside the top five all time highest attendances at the stadium for a Hull FC game.

That said, the stadium itself will not be completely full with some areas left closed.

The game kicks off at 12:30.

TV coverage starts on Sky Sports from 12:00.

Team News

Smith has made four changes to the side that was named in advance of last week’s clash against Warrington.

Ligi Sao returns from his one-match suspension, while Ben McNamara has recovered from a shoulder knock to be included.

Meanwhile, Mitieli Vulikijapani and Jamie Shaul are both also included. Shaul is something of Hull’s forgotten man and could replace Tex Hoy.

A superb player he could make a real statement in this game.

The quartet replace Andre Savelio, Joe Lovodua, and Nick Staveley, alongside Tex Hoy who misses out through a hamstring injury.

Hull remain without Jake Trueman through injury.

Willie Peters meanwhile welcomes back centres Tom Opacic and Shaun Kenny-Dowall from injury and suspension respectively.

Louis Senior will remain on the wing with Ethan Ryan not included.
