Hull FC v Castleford: Predicted line-ups and late injury news

Two top six hopefuls meet in Hull tonight on the back of impressive derby wins. The Black and Whites edged a scintillating game against Hull KR whilst Castleford claimed a third win in a row with a 5-point triumph over rivals Wakefield. But who will claim the all-important win today?

Hull have lost key players Joe Cator and Josh Reynolds forcing Brett Hodgson into one or two changes. Young halfback Ben McNamara will replace Reynolds at six whilst the return of Chris Satae to the side will lessen Cator’s absence. Meanwhile, Mahe Fonua could return to the centres in place of Cameron Scott whilst Jamie Shaul remains on the bench after impressing last week in his comeback from injury.

As for Castleford, I fancy Daryl Powell to name the exact same side who beat Wakefield last week. After all, that 17 offered plenty of size with Nathan Massey at loose-forward and powerful prop Liam Watts on the bench. Considering the form of Ligi Sao and Chris Satae, such size will be important if the Tigers want to claim the win.
