England international has played with 4 different players this year.
England winger Tom Briscoe says he happy to team up with either Kirk Yeaman or Ben Crooks on Hull’s left flank this Sunday when the Black and Whites take on St Helens at the KC Stadium.
With Tony Martin ruled out for the season after rupturing his Achilles during Saturday’s 32-30 loss to Hull KR, Briscoe is preparing to line up alongside a different centre partner this weekend.
With fellow international Yeaman pushing for a return from a foot injury and 18-year-old Ben Crooks working hard to earn a recall to the side after being rested last week, Peter Gentle has plenty of options at his disposal going into the clash with last year’s Grand Finalists and Briscoe says he will be happy with whoever the Hull coach decides to call upon.
"I’m not too fussed who lines up alongside me, you just have to adapt and get on with it. I’ve played with Kirk for most of my career, but injuries happen in this sport and you have to make the most of the situation,” he said.
"All of our centres are great players to play with and I don’t mind who is there alongside me, but it looks like it’ll be Ben or Kirk on Sunday and I’m excited about either one. I’ve struck up a good understanding with Yeamo over the past few years, but I love playing with Ben as well.
"He reminds me of what I was like when I first came into the side and I like the added responsibility of trying to help him out as much as I can and talking him through it.
"Ben has a lot of potential and he is definitely one for the future, but he doesn’t look out of place in the team now either.”
