Hull are bowing to public pressure by reverting to their traditional strip of irregular black and white hoops. A poll in a local newspaper showed supporters overwhelmingly in favour of going back to what is arguably the most distinctive shirt in the game after years of flirting with various designs. Hull will reveal their new, which is to say old look today and also hope to be able to finally say something definite about the future of their Great Britain centre, Alan Hunte. Hunte has been linked with a move to rugby union but has now said that, in the absence of a sufficiently attractive offer, he expects to stay at Hull.

Wakefield Trinity hope to have the thorny question of their finances in Super League for the next two years resolved at a meeting of the Rugby League's board of directors tomorrow. Trinity have already begun the necessary team strengthening for next season and want to take it a stage further by taking four Bradford players with considerable first team experience on loan. They are Jon Scales, Kevin Crouthers, the former Great Britain second rower Sonny Nickle and Andy Hodgson, although Scales is also a target for Bristol Rugby Union.

Martin Wood, a discarded Challenge Cup winner at Sheffield, has rejoined his former club, Keighley, whilst Josh White, unwanted at Salford, is on his way to Workington.
