Hull FC v Hull KR: 21-man-squad and injury news

Hull FC and Hull KR will finally do battle on Saturday at the MKM Stadium, as part of the Super League’s Rivals Round.

The previous derby fixture did not go ahead, despite trying to fit the match in on two different dates. The first date saw a Hull KR outbreak scupper it, while Hull FC had an outbreak for the second postponement.

The Black and Whites will be hoping to bounce back this week, after defeat in the south of France against Catalans Dragons last week. Meanwhile, Hull KR will hope to keep their momentum after beating Wigan Warriors.

It is set to be the first derby in front of fans since February 2020.

The match is due to kick off at 3pm, and will be live on Sky Sports.
