Star man named in surprise position

Daryl Powell’s Warrington Wolves are the only unbeaten side left in Super League and today they take on Hull FC in front of the Channel 4 cameras.

Powell is very aware of the threat Hull FC pose despite losing their last four games.

He also thinks they pose a bigger threat away from home because they have less pressure on them away from the MKM Stadium.

“The way I’m looking at them at the moment I think they’re better away from home than they are at home,” Powell said on BBC Radio Merseyside.

“They seem as though they’re a little bit more relaxed mindset and play better, they did against St Helens a couple of rounds ago.”

Even without the pressure of being at home it will be a tough ask for Tony Smith’s side to find a way of defeating the Wolves but Tony Smith has named the side he thinks has the best chance of doing so.

Danny Houghton comes back in the mix at nine with Brad Dwyer on the bench. Joe Lovodua starts in the halves alongside Jake Clifford with Jake Trueman and Ben McNamara absent.

Darnell McIntosh is still left out of the side and plays for the reserves as Davy Litten keeps his spot on the wing.

With no Ligi Sao due to suspension, Kane Evans comes onto the bench after being left out the last few weeks.

As for Warrington the departing Thomas Mikaele makes his farewell appearance starting at prop.

He is joined in the pack by Peter Mata’utia who is surprisingly named at 13. Greg Minikin is at centre with Matty Russell kept on the wing.

Josh Thewlis does return but on the bench.

There is no Daryl Clark so Danny Walker starts at nine.
