Hull will be looking forward to finally playing a competitive match again when they welcome London Broncos to the KC Stadium on Sunday.
The Airlie Birds had been due to face Catalan Dragons last Saturday in round two of the new Stobart Super League season, only for a frozen pitch at Stade Gilbert Brutus to force the match to be postponed.
Hull used their time in the south of France to do extra training sessions ahead of the home game with the Broncos, which can be seen live on Sky Sports HD1/1.
Coach Peter Gentle admits he expects a tough encounter against opponents he expects to be in the mix for a play-off berth come the end of the campaign.
"They are a good team and we expect them to be a top eight side this year," he told Hull's official website. "They have recruited very strongly and we know they will be very dangerous.
"London also come into the game with the benefit of having played a game more than us, but we have focused on the positives this week.
"We switched our attention to the London game as soon as the Catalans match was called off, with three extra training sessions over in France to compensate for not playing."
The Black and Whites opened their campaign with a 20-20 draw against Warrington, though Brett Seymour missed that match due to a knee injury.
However the Australian half-back is now fit and set to belatedly make his debut for the club, with Danny Nicklas expected to drop to the bench to make way for the off-season recruit from the New Zealand Warriors.
London Broncos also faced Warrington in their last outing, going down 50-10 to the Wolves at the Halliwell Jones Stadium last Sunday.
Coach Rob Powell has resisted the temptation to make changes for their second successive away game, naming an unchanged 19-man squad. Liam Colbon, Dan Sarginson and Karl Tamata all remain on the sidelines.
"We are looking forward to getting back on track after our performance last week," Powell said. "The boys have trained with a lot of intensity and purpose this week and will no doubt be looking to show what they know they are capable of."
Hull squad: Aspinwall, T. Briscoe, Ellis, Horne, Houghton, Lynch, Manu, Martin, McKinnon, Moa, Nicklas, O'Meley, Sharp, Seymour, Tickle, Turner, Westerman, Whiting, Yeaman.
London Broncos squad: Bailey, Bryant, Caro, Clubb, Cook, Dixon, Dorn, Golden, Gower, Howell, Kaufusi, Krasniqi, Melling, O'Callaghan, Randall, Rinaldi, Robertson, Rodney, Witt.
