Hull FC vs Castleford Tigers: Team news and injuries as Andy Last’s side suffers long-term blow

HULL FC take on Castleford Tigers on Saturday afternoon at the MKM Stadium.

The Black and Whites go into this one on the back of a 16-6 win over bitter rivals Hull KR, a win which kept Hull’s chance of finishing in the play-offs alive.

Castleford, meanwhile, went down 34-16 at The Jungle against in-form Leigh Leopards last weekend as Wakefield Trinity closed the gap to just two points.

Team news and injuries

Hull will be without Tex Hoy after the fullback suffered another hamstring injury. Will Gardiner is also replaced by Davy Litten and Harvey Barron.

The Tigers will be without Jordan Turner after the centre suffered a broken thumb against Leigh, with Mahe Fonua the only change. Suaia Matagi is still on compassionate leave.
