Hull will be without forward Andre Savelio for Thursday's visit of Rhinos.

He has been suspended for three matches after being charged with grade C punching in the loss at Huddersfield Giants last week, when he was sent-off.

Giants' Josh Jones was banned for two matches for grade C punching, after being dismissed over the same incident.

Hull's Ligi Sao was warned for raising a knee.

Wakefield Trinity will travel to Catalans Dragons on Thursday without forward Jay Pitts who was handed a two-game penalty notice for dangerous contact against Wigan Warriors last Friday.

Trinity's Kelepi Tanginoa was cautioned for dangerous contact.
