Hull FC survived a second-half scare to post a 22-6 victory over Celtic Crusaders at the KC Stadium.
Hull led 4-0 at the half-time interval after a low-scoring forty minutes of rugby.
The Crusaders took a 6-4 lead after the restart but were unable to prevent a Hull comeback.
It seemed as though the sides would be level after slow-paced first half, but Craig Hall’s try in the closing moments gave the hosts a 4-0 lead.
Damien Quinn’s short pass allowed Adam Peek to touch down ten minutes into the second period, Quinn’s conversion then giving the Crusaders a 6-4 lead.
Hull, however, regained the lead when Shaun Berrigan sent Gareth Raynor over the line, Danny Tickle adding his first goal for a 10-6 advantage.
The victory was sealed in the final ten minutes thanks to tries from Mark Calderwood and Josh Cordova, Tickle converting each to give the final score a convincing look.
