Widnes for mine, on the assumption that Brown has one his inspired days when he is the real deal.

Crikey....been disappointed with the way hull have capitulated in recent games in the last 20....if they do the same this sat then widnes are in with a decent chance, assuming of course, that we don"t do the same!!....home adv and decent team out we could pinch this by 4pts

Expecting Hull to hit the straps (at last!) and take this one by a decent margin.

Hull by 20 !

Hoping Holdsworth is over his concussion and plays - might be a bit closer without him ;)

watched holdsworth in direct action with hanbury last season and rhys took him apart to the point that holdsworth was conspicuously withdrawn. more of the same this time, and the KB factor will see another home win against the aerli birds...............by 10

Can't remember whether Hull are currently in crisis or on the way to Old Trafford. They'll win this one I think.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Hull's players shouldn't need reminding of last season's horror show and I expect Gentle to tell them they owe the fans extra effort on Saturday. Hopefully Briscoe will be better back on the wing as IIRC, it was an awful show from him at full back last season that had Hull on the back foot.

A lot depends on Holdsworth's availability, with him Hull by 10+, without him by 2.

Widnes 16 Hull 26.
