It’s the first game of 2018 on Sunday as Hull FC host Hull Kingston Rovers! Here’s all the key information for the Clive Sullivan Trophy clash.
The Black and Whites host city rivals Hull Kingston Rovers this Sunday (14th January) at the KCOM Stadium in the first of two warm-up games, which gets underway at 2pm.
The game will once again be played in honour of a legend on both sides of the city, Clive Sullivan MBE, who made over 500 appearances combined for the Black and Whites and the Red and Whites and also won the Challenge Cup with both sides.
2016 Steve Prescott Man of Steel Danny Houghton will be celebrating his testimonial on Sunday and the back-to-back Challenge Cup winners will be making a donation to his testimonial fund from their proceeds from the game.
