Radford pinpoints skills improvement for Hull FC

Hull FC coach Lee Radford has targeted improving his team’s skill levels as a way of making significant progress next season.

The Airlie Birds ended their 2015 campaign with a 24-28 home defeat to Catalans Dragons at the KC Stadium on Sunday.

The Dragons were in a 20-0 lead at one stage, but FC’s fightback was to be in vain.

“I would have liked to have signed the season off with a win, but that wasn’t to be in the end despite a good fightback,” Radford told the Hull Daily Mail.

“There were too many fundamental errors in the first half. Catching and passing, they’ve been issues all year.

“It summed up our season really, we were gallant in defeat. Where we have been deficient throughout is our skill set, and hopefully our recruitment for 2016 will sort out those problems.

“They have played international rugby and their skill set is naturally high.

“It’s clear to see our skill set hasn’t been high enough to knock them top-four teams off. That gives us something to focus on in pre-season.”
