  • Houghton named in squad for Sunday
  • Hull FC face Castleford Tigers at the KCOM Stadium
  • Green and Griffin also back in

Reigning Man of Steel Danny Houghton could make his return this Sunday when Hull FC face Castleford Tigers at the KCOM Stadium.

Houghton, who became the first Hull player to win the individual prize last year, has been missing for the Black and Whites since the victory over Wigan Warriors last month with a calf problem.

However he could return to the team this Sunday afternoon when the table topping Tigers visit.

Former Castleford man Josh Griffin has been named having missed Easter Monday’s win over Leigh Centurions along with Chris Green.

Impressive youngsters Brad Fash and Jez Litten retain their places, Jordan Thompson misses out and head coach Lee Radford is still without winger Fetuli Talanoa.
