Agar all smiles after Easter victories

Hull FC coach Richard Agar believes his side are more confident after their 24-10 victory away to Warrington on Easter Monday.


The win at the Halliwell Jones Stadium means that the black and whites have a 100 per cent win rate over the Easter period after defeating rivals Hull KR on Good Friday. It also relieves any pressure on Agar from fans calling for him to be sacked after winning only three games prior to round 11.


Agar said: “To get four points over Easter, considering the sides we’ve played, is a good return and for us to back up with a win after Friday makes it a bit more special.


“At times we’ve been a little disappointed. During the year we have lost a little bit of impact. In my book we’ve played the three toughest away fixtures and have taken two points from that. But in every game we’ve acquitted ourselves really well against those teams.”


Agar admits that until this Easter period, his side haven’t performed as well as they could have. He now believes that with the confidence his side have gained after their last two games that they can push on and start to climb the Super League ladder.


Agar said: “We have said for a while we don’t think our form is justifying the points we have, but we have been the first to stick our hands up and admit we have got what we deserved on a few occasions  because we haven’t performed to the level required.


“But what is heartening me is seeing the boys with the spirit they’re playing with and the commitment they have shown to each other, that’s plain and simply not in doubt for me.


“The fixtures we had over Easter and the manner and style which the guys performed leaves us with a lot of heart and I think we can look forward very positively .It will have done the guys no end of good as well. They are all confidence in their mindset.”
