Saints face Hull FC at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Friday evening with kick off at 8pm and we have all the information you need right here in our Match Preview story.
After the disappointment of last week’s narrow Challenge Cup Semi Final loss at the hands of Wigan Warriors, Saints return to Super League action at the Totally Wicked Stadium, where we will entertain Hull FC. The Black and Whites are one of the competition’s most improved outfits and they will arrive here in a confident mood.
They are currently lying in 4th position on the Super League ladder having won seven of their 11 games for a total of 14 points. They trail joint leaders’ St. Helens and Wigan Warriors by four points and are two points behind third placed, Catalans Dragons.
Head Coach, Brett Hodgson is in his second year in charge at Hull FC and he is looking for his team to make huge strides back towards the top end of the table.
