The one bright thought in my mind is that at least it won't be as f***ing cold as when we met earlier this year.

Sky Sports Jenna Brooks to Jake Connor regarding England selection : "Shaun Wane has said that he's spoken to you about why you were left out, he's also said he's told you what you needed to do more of, I'm interested, what do you need to do more of and did you do it tonight?"

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."

Is this not on't telly? Only it's the sort of game where I enjoy seeing both sides beating seven bells out of the other.

Saints aren't at their best at the minute and Hull have been much improved in the last couple, so an upset isn't beyond the realms of possibility. I can't really see it though.

Saints by 12

Hull do pull one or two out of the hat each season, I think this will be one of those, Hull to win by 8.

I agree, Saints are well out of sorts at the moment and with nothing much to play for until the play offs. Their line speed is nothing like what it was earlier in the season and this is a good opportunity for the monochromes.

For once Saints have actually got more players back than they've lost. Sironen & Hill drop out but they get Hopoate, Paasi, Mata'utia & Simm back., though not sure if Hopoate is fully fit to play.

If he is it will be a much more balanced backline than in recent weeks. Probably looking at a team of;

Hopoate

Makinson,

Hurrell

Mata'utia

Bennison

Welsby

Lomax

Walmsley

Roby

Lees

Bell

Batchelor

Knowles

 

LMS

Lussick

Paasi

Wingfield

Strongest team they've been able to put out for a while. I just hope they don't persist with Davies at centre, he's really struggled.

Like most games of RL it will come down to attitude.  Hull might be more desperate given Saints nailed on for top2, but Saints won’t want to give up a buffer at the top before the Wigan game given how out of form we are.

Wouldn’t be at all surprised to see a Hull win and tbh I don’t really care as long as we don’t pick up more injuries/bans as that’s what it’s all about until play-off time.

Going to be around 30°C at kick off. Been to plenty of Hull home games where it's been around 30°F at kick off but I think this will be a first.

Horrible conditions for RL - you have to feel for the players.  Not too much raw pace in the Saints team which isn’t great in these conditions . . . .

Quite the contrast from sleet in February, today. 

Just get through it without any injuries or suspensions and I’m happy. We’re in the top two, the hubcap would be nice but we’ve pretty much got the home advantage for the play-offs already.

Agreed. Going to be pretty tough for the big lads.

I expect an hammering.

Rugby Union the only game in the world were the spectators handle the ball more than the players.

Can’t help but wonder when I read comments from Hull and Hull KR fans about needing to win X amount of games to make the top 6.

Its laughable, they’d just manage to qualify for the end of season comp that they’d both get stuffed in.

As for today, if we stay within 20 points and don’t collapse to another embarrassing score line then that’ll do me.

Would be even less surprised by a loss now Welsby hasn’t been named in the XVII.

I say it every week, but worth repeating. Saints very rarely 'batter' any team. We have only scored 30+ points around 3 times in Super League this year.

Hopoate and Mata'utai back is a big boost, but Welsby out is a blow. Always unknown how the heat will impact both teams.

I'll go Saints by 10.

But the big question is what do you put in the hipflask on a day like today?

Oh, it has to be iced water, Ullman, in the interests of your well-being, of course.

 

In the other hip flask...
