Double blow for Hull FC ahead of derby

Hull FC will be without both Frank Pritchard and Carlos Tuimavave for their derby clash with Hull Kingston Rovers

Pritchard has lost his race to be fit for the match having sat out Hull’s defeat to Leeds Rhinos on Friday as an ankle problem continues to trouble him

Meanwhile, Tuimavave was a casualty during Hull’s most recent defeat as he left the action during their 20-15 reverse to the Rhinos. Jordan Abdull replaces Tuimavave in an otherwise unchanged squad.
