Hull FC vs Catalans Dragons: Kick-off time, TV channel and predicted line-ups

The teams who started the round third and fifth meet in what is the game of the round in terms of league standings.

Oddly, despite that neither side will be totally happy with 2022. The Dragons may be third but haven’t found their top their gear yet.

Meanwhile, Hull FC have been up and down and the derby defeat will have been tough to stomach. But a win over Warrington eased things as will a win here especially as a win will propel them into the top four at the expense of their neighbours who moved into the top four thanks to their win over Wakefield yesterday.

Kick-off time and TV channel

The game kicks off at 18:45.

TV coverage starts on Sky Sports Arena at 18:30.

Predicted Line-ups

Hull FC
The Black and Whites are without skipper Luke Gale owing to a ban, and outside backs Connor Wynne and Adam Swift through injury. This will see Josh Reynolds given a chance back in the side in the halves unless Brett Hodgson prefers Ben McNamara who will be up against his dad the Dragons’ coach Steve McNamara if he plays. Jamie Shaul will remain on the wing partnered by Mitielu Vulikijapni at centre. There will be a first appearance of the season for Scott Taylor off what will be a very big bench.

Catalans Dragons
The Dragons also have some size back in the fold with Gil Dudson and Julian Bousquet set to return to the bench after Dudson missed the win at former club Salford on Monday whilst Bousquet has missed the bulk of the season. Benjamin Jullien will replace the suspended Joe Chan in the backrow with Mike McMeeken unavailable through a dislocation in his wrist.
