Lee Radford criticises Hull’s “painful” looking attack

Drew Darbyshire

Hull coach Lee Radford was deeply disappointed with his side’s display in their defeat at Wigan.

The Black and Whites suffered a consecutive defeat in Super League after losing 26-12 against the Warriors on Sunday afternoon.

Radford said: “The second half they came out and did a tidy job on us.

“We made some costly errors and they slowly ground us down. It looks painful some of the plays we are running.

“You have got to break the opposition’s momentum with some special efforts and we probably didn’t see enough of them. We needed a bit more from everybody, we just slowly got ground down with a team that had a lot of possession. They didn’t do anything spectacular but did their jobs really well.

“I don’t think anyone was outstanding today. Josh Griffin was head and shoulders our best player I thought. But there were a lot of okay performances around that.”
