Wakefield v Hull FC: 21-man squads and injury update

Wakefield and Hull FC meet on Friday with nothing but pride at stake. Well, that’s what most people will tell you and it could be true. That said, it could also be a good opportunity for both sides to build some momentum ahead of next season.

That’s what Wakefield will want to do after they endured a curious slip up at Leigh last week. Having enjoyed a spectacular run of form under interim Head Coach Willie Poching, Wakefield were stunned by the Centurions who claimed only their second win of the season. In front of their own supporters on Friday night however, Trinity will want to finish the season on a high.

Meanwhile, 2021 promised so much for Hull FC and they’ll be gutted to go into the final game of the season with nothing to play for. At the start of the year, they looked like a side who could push for the top four instead they’ll be lucky to avoid the bottom four. They need a strong finish if they want to provide their fans with hope ahead of 2022. It could be a big game for their players too with a rumoured overhaul planned for the winter.

The game kicks off at 19:45.


For Trinity, they’re still without the likes of Max Jowitt, Tom Johnstone and Bill Tupou giving others like Innes Senior and Joe Arundel a chance to shine in the backs. There could also be an opportunity for youngster Harry Bowes to impress if he gets the nod. He comes in for Lee Kershaw in the only change to their squad and could be given a run out in this dead rubber.

21-man squad: 4 Reece Lyne, 5 Liam Kay, 6 Jacob Miller, 7 Mason Lino, 8 David Fifita, 9 Kyle Wood, 10 Tinirau Arona, 12 Kelepi Tanginoa, 13 Joe Westerman, 14 Jay Pitts, 15 Eddie Battye, 16 James Batchelor, 17 Chris Green, 18 Innes Senior, 19 Jordy Crowther, 20 Joe Arundel, 23 Josh Wood, 25 Brad Walker, 26 Yusuf Aydin, 29 Ryan Hampshire, 33 Harry Bowes.

Hull FC

Like Wakefield, Hull have made just one change to their 21-man squad with Marc Sneyd dropping out through injury whilst young outside back Marcus Walker steps in for the Black and Whites. Hull are without plenty of their first-choice team with Josh Reynolds and Danny Houghton also unavailable. Their absence could see young Ben McNamara star in the halves.

21-man squad: 1 Jake Connor, 2 Bureta Faraimo, 3 Carlos Tuimavave, 5 Mahe Fonua, 10 Chris Satae, 11 Andre Savelio, 12 Manu Ma’u, 13 Ligi Sao, 14 Jordan Johnstone, 16 Jordan Lane, 17 Brad Fash, 19 Ben McNamara, 22 Josh Bowden, 23 Connor Wynne, 24 Cameron Scott, 26 Jude Ferreira, 27 Mitieli Vulikijapani, 29 Jamie Shaul, 31 Aidan Burrell, 32 Marcus Walker, 33 Jacob Hookem.
