Hull FC's new signing James Webster has targeted the all ticket clash with his former club Hull KR at the KC Stadium on Sunday, July 20th (12-15pm) to make his debut.
The 28-year-old is still waiting for his British passport which will make him a non quota player and free to official complete his move across the city to Hull FC.
Webster is hoping his British passport comes through soon and he is confident the shoulder injury which resulted in his contract with Hull KR being terminated will be right for the derby.
It is fingers cross all the way for the half back and after meeting up with Hull FC legend John Whiteley at the clubs training headquarters at Brantingham Park, he said: "That would be some game to make my debut. Hopefully everything will be in place by then.
"It is the game I am targeting and one I am really looking forward to playing in. I'm confident that with some more work in the gym my shoulder will be right and then it's just down to getting my British passport."
Whiteley was down at Brantingham as Webster was unveiled to the media and the former Hull star joined in with Hull's newcomer for a bit of inter passing for the cameras.
"That was a thrill," said Webster. "John is a legend and what a great guy he is."
After it was released on Monday that Webster had signed a short term contract to the end of the season, subject to him getting his British passport, he has been worked out in the gym.
He's now stepping up his training, and he admits: "I am very excited about the move and it doesn't get much bigger than switching sides in Hull.
"It is going to be a great challenge and one which I am really looking forward to undertaking."
To save missing out on a match which was a double sell out last season, Hull are urging fans to buy their tickets now.
This is an all ticket game and tickets will not be sold on match day. Already ticket sales have reach 17,000 with 11 days still to go before the game.
Ticket Office opening hours:
Monday - Friday 9.00am - 5.00pm
Saturday 9.00am - 12noon (non match days)
