Dragon layers may get their fingers burned; Catalans are capable of piling more hell on Hull.

Byline: HULL v CATALAN Sky Sports 1, 8pm

ROD STUDD'S PREVIEW PAGE 106 HULL fans have already had to endure the humiliation of seeing their team shut out in the Challenge Cup final in the pouring rain at Wembley and tonight the Airlie Birds could become the first club to be dumped out of the play-offs if they fail to fire against Catalan.

The big-spending Black & Whites are 8-13 favourites but their recent performances have been poor, culminating in a shocking loss to St Helens last week.

Coach Peter Gentle has gone back to basics in an attempt to extend Hull's season.

"Every aspect of our game has been reviewed and we've worked hard to rectify what has gone on recently," he said.

"We have to get our game in order and back on track."

But Rugby League tipster Rod Studd thinks backing Catalan on the handicap could be the best bet.
