Hull FC boss Lee Radford was less than complimentary about his side despite seeing them claim a 26-16 win at Wakefield. A Ratu Naulago brace and further tries from Bureta Faraimo, Carlos Tuimavave and Marc Sneyd helped the Airlie Birds draw level on 30 points with second-placed Warrington in the Super League table.

However, it was a scrappy affair throughout, with referee Liam Moore struggling to control the ruck. Radford was left frustrated by the match, admitting it was not an enticing spectacle for anyone present. “The performance of (Carlos) Tuimavave and the win are the two best things to come out of today,” he said.
“I don’t want to cop a fine but I thought it was a really poorly-managed game. “I thought the ruck speed was Championship One level. It’s something I’ve spoken to the official about previously. When it’s like that, it becomes a slow game. “We know we’ve got to finish two points above anybody we’re level with because of our poor points difference. But we’re still in there, we’re still swinging, nobody giving us a mention and I quite like that.”
