Radford eyes ending Cup drought

Hull FC coach Lee Radford wants his side to right “115 years of wrongs” in the Challenge Cup final next month.

The Black and Whites are through to Wembley after defeating Wigan in the semi-final tonight.

“I felt tonight’s game was about effort and grit,” Radford said.

“I’m obviously really pleased. But I’ve been there and lost with this team twice [in Cup finals]. So for us it’s about going there [Wembley] and getting the result.

“I felt we came out really strong in the second period.

“They’re a top, top side. We’ve done it the tough way.

“[Now we want to] right 115 years of wrongs. I can’t tell you what that would mean for the club.”

Hull FC captain Gareth Ellis praised the effort of his teammates.

“The effort of the boys tonight was absolutely outstanding,” he said.

“I’m very grateful to come out on the right side of that result.”
