Asked about the Hull game Coach Mike Gregory said,
"I think it will be a similar game to Bradford, the way they play, the way Shaun and John have got them playing. They can play a bit of football this team on the edge from the go forward, but if you look at Greenhill, Carvell, King, Dowes, Ryan and Maher they have an abundance of strength. If you look at the likes of Chester, Cooke and Horne on the back of that, we have to be smart with it. It's nothing new, we have to match them upfront and every game will be won and lost around the ruck and that's not going to change."
