Hull FC: Andy Lynch says underdogs will have bite at Wolves
CAPTAIN Andy Lynch says Hull FC are happy with their role as underdogs in Saturday's play-off clash at Warrington.
Lynch played a pivotal role in Hull's 46-10 defeat of Huddersfield Giants in the first round of the play-offs last Sunday.
However, their Halliwell Jones Stadium hosts – having finished second in the league – will start favourites
Lynch has been instrumental in the FC pack this season, leading the metres and carries, and though the former Bradford Bull is relishing the prospect of making an appearance at Old Trafford, he knows Warrington will pose a significant test.

"We're going into Saturday's game as underdogs," he said.
"Warrington have been one of the top teams all season and they'll want to prove a point after their defeat against St Helens, but we can go in without any pressure on our shoulders and enjoy playing the game, so we're confident we can perform well on the day.
"We had a great performance against Huddersfield and we're in good spirits so we just need to keep working hard this week and step-up our game in a few areas and we can go there and come away with the win."
Lynch says a large following could play a crucial role as Hull aim for another big display to keep their season alive.
"There's a really good spirit in the camp," said Lynch.
"We prepared very well for the game against Huddersfield and we came away with a great win in front of our fans which was fantastic.
"The fans are always massive at this stage of the season. Stepping out at the KC the fans have been fantastic all year but we've had a good turn-out of travelling fans throughout the campaign as well.
"Hopefully they can turn out in force again this weekend.
"We're playing at a good stadium and it would be great to see a big support there to spur us on."
