I see Wigan have signed Brad Singleton for 3 years and avaiable for rest of season.  Bullock has a broken hand and Burgess has a hip issue, and Flower is leaving at end of season, so I can see why that have moved now.

Sneyd is back for Hull. Initially they said he could be out for 2 months, and that's been 2 weeks! So hopefully he actually is fit and they aren't just rushing him back out of desperation due to Kelly being out.

Naulago and Shaul are missing too. Big chance for Connor Wynne to show what he can do again.

I am expecting a Wigan win, but if we fight for 80 minutes and give it a real go that will do for me. And I live in hope that we can cause an upset.

Burgess has had a hip "issue" for 3 years it's why Souths got shot of him.

Wigan squad looking a bit lightweight up front,which will give Hull hope of an upset.

Souths gave him a years extension to his contract. But he clearly still has issues with it.

But someone will have to step up with the likes of Smithies not available. Presumably O'Loughlin will play, but obviously he is not match fit.

At least Gildart looking sharp. I read that Connor sees himself as a 7. That will be interesting to see how he goes.  Personally I don't mind how much he shouts his mouth off as long as he is worth it.

I'm leaning towards a Hull win in this one. They've got a very good pack of forwards and they've probably been the biggest underachievers so far this year but look to be coming into some form now. I think it's pretty much nailed on that they'll be very dominant in the forwards. Wigan will probably be hoping for an energetic defensive display similar to the Catalans game and looking to be clinical with any attacking opportunities.

We've only got 3 props in the squad and one of those is Mitch Clark who couldn't even get picked ahead of an injured Burgess last week. Clark may get a chance to redeem himself but Lam could also give an opportunity to Jack Wells or Harry Rushton instead.

I think the power of Hull's forwards will be the difference in this one.

Just reading that Atropa (Hull's main shirt sponsor) have requested Hull wear their 2005 replica shirt that they wore last week again. Forgoing their sponsorship for another week, since their name isn't on the shirt.

For those that aren't aware this shirt is a fundraising one for Rob Burrow. £5 from every sale is going to him. Great gesture from Atropa to do their little bit for Rob.

I'll go Hull.  They were impressive last week .  

I saw a very powerful DIY SOS tv show on BBC last night.  Helping a family of Hull FC fans.  Some good wheelchair rugby action on show.  One lad was sporting a Myton Warriors shirt.  If Hull can get a result for that family it would be great.

If our goal line defence is up to it's usual standard, we'll concede every time Wiggin are in with a sniff.

I'm with MZH on this one, as long as they tighten that up and have a go for the full 80 mins then I can't complain.

Think we'll come second.

As a neutral I would be barracking for Hull but that said I think Wigan will win this one...

They got rid because basically he's ######.

Don't worry the Wigan attack can always find a defender.
