Early Super League leaders Hull FC have been forced into four changes for the visit of St Helens on Sunday.

Albert Kelly and Chris Satae are banned, while Bureta Faraimo and Andre Savelio are out because of injuries.

Reigning champions St Helens are without England centre Mark Percival, who needs shoulder surgery and could be out of action for several months.

But England winger Tommy Makinson (shoulder) and prop Alex Walmsley (calf) are available to play.

Saints lost to Warrington last week and come up against a Hull FC team that have won their first two league games.

Hull FC (6) 18
Tries: Tuimavave 2, Shaul Goals: Sneyd 3
St Helens (2) 32
Tries: Costello, Thompson, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Bentley, Smith Goal: Makinson 6
St Helens scored five second-half tries to come from behind and inflict a first defeat of the season on Hull FC.

Despite the 2019 Grand Final winners' first-half dominance, they trailed 6-2 at the break courtesy of a converted Carlos Tuimavave try for the home side.

But, within 20 minutes of the restart, Matthew Costello, Luke Thompson, Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook and James Bentley had gone over for Saints.


Aaron Smith added a fifth try, between replies from Tuimavave and Jamie Shaul.

St Helens centre Mark Percival could play in their World Club Challenge match against Sydney Roosters despite being ruled out for "several months" with a shoulder injury last week.

Percival was set to have surgery but it has been put back to next week to allow him to feature in Saturday's game.
