Hull FC and Catalans Dragons props set to make welcome returns from injury

Scott Taylor has been named in Hull FC’s 21-man squad to face Catalans Dragons on Sunday and could play for the first time this season following a foot injury.

However, Hull must do without suspended skipper Luke Gale, as well as Adam Swift (foot) and Connor Wynne (concussion), for the Super League clash, as Jacob Hookem and Harvey Barron also come into contention.

Josh Griffin (ankle and knee), Andre Savelio (knee), Joe Cator (Achilles) and Cameron Scott (ankle) remain out injured.

Catalans make two enforced changes to their squad, with Jordan Dezaria and Joe Chan absent through injury and suspension respectively.

The Dragons have a welcome returnee in Julian Bousquet, following the arm injury suffered in the opening round of the season, while Mathieu Cozza also comes into contention, though Samisoni Langi, Dean Whare (pectoral) and Mike McMeeken (arm) remain out.
