Hull FC entertains local rivals Hull KR this Sunday 9 January at the KC Stadium, 3:15pm kick-off. Please let me know if you are reporting on this game and I will add you to the press list. If you have already applied please ignore this message. 7,500 tickets have been sold for the game so far compared to 6,500 tickets this time last year. Last season?s friendly attracted a bumper crowd of over 15,000 and the club?s officials are hoping to beat that figure at Sunday?s game.
Hull FC?s exciting new signing Nathan Blacklock is likely to figure from either the start or from off the bench. Head coach John Kear will be announcing his team on Thursday at a press conference (12:00pm) and the club will also be unveiling their new Kiwi signings Stephen Kearney and Motu Tony.
Meanwhile sales of Hull FC?s new home and away shirts have surpassed the 4,000 barrier. The shirts first went on sale last month on Saturday 15 December and these sales figures result in new records being set.
