Hull FC will aim to exact revenge on rivals Hull KR on Saturday as the pair lock horns in their sixth Magic Weekend derby.

A last-gasp drop-goal from Craig Hill saw the Robins snatch a 21-20 triumph at the KC Lightstream Stadium in April, but Lee Radford's side will aim to level the scores at the Etihad Stadium.

The sides enter the match level on 10 points in eighth and ninth respectively, with the black and whites holding the advantage with five wins as opposed to the Robins' four wins and two draws.

One of those draw came last weekend as they played out a 16-16 stalemate with Salford Red Devils, while Hull FC suffered a 44-16 defeat at the hands of reigning champions Wigan Warriors.

Despite the city's football team playing Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley on the same day, both clubs have managed to sell their full allocation of tickets for the Magic Weekend.

"We've been thrilled with the number of fans planning on making the journey across to the Magic Weekend," Hull KR chief executive Mike Smith told the club's official website.

"Sales are right up there with last season and considering Hull City are playing in the FA Cup final on the same day, that is terrific support.

"With everything that is going on, to sell out our allocation of tickets on two separate occasions is testament to the passion our fans have for this club."


Ahead of the Magic Weekend, Craig Sandercock has made just one change to the squad which was held to a draw at the AJ Bell Stadium on Saturday.

New Zealander Wayne Ulugia drops out of the matchday party after not making the 17-man side last weekend and is replaced by Jonathan Walker.

Meanwhile, Hull FC coach Lee Radford has recalled Jordan Rankin and Dean Hadley for Saturday's derby match.

Rankin comes back into the 19-man squad after dropping out last week for the defeat to Wigan, but returns to face the side he scored against in the recent derby clash at Easter.

The 22-year old, who is the Black and Whites top Super League try scorer in 2014, is joined in Radford's preliminary squad by back row forward Dean Hadley as Josh Bowden and Ben Crooks drop out.

Captain Gareth Ellis is relishing the prospect of playing in front of a diverse crowd, comprising fans from all Super League clubs, and believes the event is an ideal advert for the sport.

"It is a great concept," Ellis told the club's official website. "It's a festival of Rugby League, there's all the games from over the weekend and there are fans from all the different clubs watching all the different games.

"It is a great spectacle and is quite different from any other sport."

Hull KR: Burns, Cockayne, Costigan, Cox, Gardner, Green, Hall, D. Hodgson, J. Hodgson, Horne, Keating, Langley, Larroyer, Lovegrove, Netherton, Salter, J. Walker, Welham, Weyman.

Hull FC: Carvell, Crookes, Colbon, Ellis, Hadley, Heremaia, Horne, Houghton, Miller, Paea, Paleaaesina, Rankin, Shaul, Talanoa, Thompson, Watts, Westerman, Whiting, Yeaman.You can watch all seven of Super League's Magic Weekend's games on Sky, including Wakefield Wildcats v Castleford Tigers on Sunday from 12pm on Sky Sports 1HD
