Yeaman, who made 374 appearances for the Black and Whites, hung up his boots at the end of the 2016 season after a 15-year career with the club.

However, after taking up a coaching role with the club following his retirement, the 34-year old has been recalled to action.

Straight after the Featherstone game, Radders gave me the nod and told me that I might be needed in the coming weeks with the injuries we picked up.

I’ve had my head down training hard since I found out I could be needed and I’m ready to go.

I’ll find out tomorrow for certain if I’m going to be playing this weekend, but there’s no better game to make your comeback in than the derby game. For me personally, the match means a lot to me and I love being involved with them.
