Cooke hits 800 career points

Paul Cooke achieved another milestone for Hull FC on Saturday as he moved to 800 career points.

FC loose forward Cooke hit the 800 mark for his hometown club with six conversations in a 36-24 over Warrington Wolves at The Kingston Communications Stadium.

His boot again proved key as he cleverly bisected the Wolves defence with combinations of well executed kicks.

Cooke, who made his debut for The Black and Whites in 1999, has appeared 208 times (31 as a sub) for Hull scoring 37 tries, kicking 319 goals and two drop goals.

Paul Cooke, said: "It's always pleasing to pick up a record in a game you win, two points against a team like Warrington was the main aim on Saturday and we achieved that. I've only just passed 200 games so it's a decent average."

Paul is one of the longest serving players at the club despite being just twenty four years of age. Famous for scoring the last minute try in the Powergen Challenge Cup in Cardiff, Paul missed just three games in 2005 and amassed 194 points which included ten tries in all competitions. Paul also earned 5 Man of the Match awards. Away from ‘work', Paul enjoys coaching NCL Division One side East Hull in his spare time alongside colleague Lee Radford.
