Hull FC vs Huddersfield Giants: Kick-off Time, TV Channel and Team News

Jake Clifford signed for Hull FC ahead of the 2023 season

Today Tony Smith’s Hull FC side take on one of his former clubs in the shape of Huddersfield Giants.

Smith’s side are hoping to avoid an eighth consecutive defeat and will be hoping to open up a bigger gap between themselves and Wakefield Trinity at the bottom.

Meanwhile after a difficult start to the season, Huddersfield are looking to generate some momentum.

Kick-off Time and TV Channel

The game has been moved back to 15:05 as the government tests its emergency alert system.

There is no live TV coverage of the game but highlights will be shown on BBC’s Super League Show.

Team News

Tony Smith has made just one change to his 21-man squad.

Australian halfback Jake Clifford is in contention to feature for the first time since picking up an ankle injury on Good Friday. He has replaced young outside back Harvey Barron.

It was believed Clifford would be out longer after a hip drop tackle in the Hull derby from James Batchelor which he was banned for.

Although nearing a return to action, this week’s match comes to soon for Jake Trueman (knee), who still waits to make his Hull FC debut. Tex Hoy (hamstring), Mitieli Vulikijapani (knee) and Jamie Shaul (calf) remain unavailable.

Huddersfield Giants are boosted by the return of Olly Wilson to the side.

Meanwhile, Joe Greenwood and Josh Jones are still absent in the Giants pack whilst Olly Russell, Theo Fages and Ash Golding are all still absent.
