Hull captain Gareth Ellis says he will relish having the pressure on his shoulders as he seeks to turn his new club into a Super League force.

Expectations at the KC Stadium soared when the England forward opted to join the Black and Whites on his return from Australia and Ellis has helped them to victory in his first two games.

All eyes will now be on the former Leeds second rower when he leads Hull out against in-form Warrington tomorrow – and that is how he likes it. "That was part of the reason for me going to Hull," said Ellis. "It is a club with a lot of expectation and they've probably underachieved in recent years."
