Hull FC vs Hull KR: Kick-off time, TV Channel and Team News

In a huge game to begin the 2024 Betfred Super League season, Hull FC and Hull KR collide at the MKM Stadium in what should be a feisty derby to start the season in front of a bumper crowd.

In terms of dominating the city, 2023 belonged to Hull KR who finished fourth and made it to Wembley. They have made the play-offs two out of the last three years whilst Hull FC haven’t played play-off rugby since 2020.

For both, it is the second season under their current coaches and one that could promise significant development.
