What we know about Hull FC’s 2022 preseason friendlies
Hull FC have confirmed their intention to face the Bradford Bulls in a pre-season friendly next month.
The two clubs have rekindled the dual-purpose partnership they had before the pandemic and they will share players throughout the 2022 campaign.
Part of the deal will see Brett Hodgson take part in Odsal for a warm-up match next month as blacks and whites continue their preparations for the Super League season.
This game will celebrate the career of Danny Brough who was forced to hang up and retire earlier this year on the back of medical advice.
Brough has played for Hull and Bradford throughout his career and he will be the main man when the two sides come together.
Black & White have not released any details about this match, however, according to the Our League app, the match will take place in Odsal on Sunday, January 16.
The app also suggests that Hull will travel to West Yorkshire two weeks later for another pre-season game as it shows they are set to face Leeds Rhinos at Headingley in a warm-up match on Sunday 30 January .
More details regarding the club’s pre-season campaign will be announced in the coming days, with potentially a game or two to be confirmed.
However, the trip to Leeds is set to be their most difficult outing before the competitive action begins and it comes just a fortnight before their opener against Wakefield Trinity at Belle Vue.
The clash certainly looks set to intrigue too, as Luke Gale returns to Headingley for the first time since his off-season release.
