Hull waiting on centre Yeaman following fit

Hull are waiting for medical reports on Kirk Yeaman before allowing him to train or play again. The Test centre had an epileptic fit at half-time in the match at Wakefield on Sunday.

"He's fine, but we have to get more checks on him," said Hull coach Richard Agar. "He won't train until he gets the all-clear from the doctors." Hull still hope that he will be passed fit to play against St Helens on Friday.

The Huddersfield coach, Nathan Brown, has been fined £1,000 – £500 of it suspended for six months – for his criticism of the refereeing of the game against Leeds in April. Brown suggested his loose forward, Luke O'Donnell, should have "run in and knocked out" Ryan Bailey after a foul on Giants' captain, Kevin Brown.
