Agar wary of Radford’s relaxed Hull

Warrington assistant coach Richard Agar feels that Hull FC will be playing without pressure when they visit the Halliwell Jones on Sunday.

Wire are struggling for form at the moment, and were beaten 28-0 at home by Wigan last time out.

Hull, though, have shown some good form in the Super 8s, having beaten St Helens and tested Leeds in the last two fixtures.

“There are some similarities in where the respective teams are at the moment,” Agar said.

“They’re very close on the ladder. The two games that we’ve played against Hull have been decided, in both instances, by a point.

“Looking at Hull over the last couple of weeks, they certainly seem to be playing without any pressure.

“They’re using the ball and promoting the ball really positively.

“I suppose there’s no expectation on them for what comes for the rest of this year, so the weight and the pressure has lifted from them.”

Agar acknowledged that most of Warrington’s work over the last couple of weeks has focused on being more confident in possession.

“We’ve encouraged our boys over the last week that we need to start backing ourselves a little bit more with the ball,” he said.

“To trust our instincts and use the ball in a far more positive way than we feel we have done over the last two or three weeks, when we’ve got bogged down in our attacking game.”
