Watts misses France trip

Hull FC forward Liam Watts was left behind when his team-mates set off for France on Thursday after failing to find his passport.

Hull FC forward Liam Watts was left behind when his team-mates set off for France on Thursday after failing to find his passport.


The former Castleford Tigers  and Hull KR prop mislaid his passport and was thwarted by the backlog in applications in his attempts to obtain a replacement.


"Liam is not travelling to France as we could not get a replacement passport," Hull football manager Motu Tony said.


Watts, 23, has started Hull's last four First Utility Super League matches, including last Friday's 56-6 win at Widnes Vikings.


Hull coach Lee Radford drafted Richard Whiting and Dean Hadley into his 19-man squad instead for the game against Catalan Dragons in Perpignan on Saturday and also recalled winger Tom Lineham, who has missed the last three months with a broken ankle, in place of teenager Callum Lancaster.


Catalan are set to give a debut to new signing Sam Williams, who is called up in place of the suspended Eloi Pelissier.
