Ellis to miss season opener

Hull FC captain Gareth Ellis is set to miss the start of the new Super League season.

The 34 year-old is still recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon and head coach Lee Radford insists he will not rush his skipper back:

“Gareth’s been in full training for two weeks but we are trusting our staff to bring him back at the right time,” Radford told the Hull FC website.

Hooker Danny Houghton will captain the Black and Whites in their season opener against Salford Red Devils on Friday.
