Radford praises Hull FC after narrow Warrington defeat

Hull FC coach Lee Radford has praised his team after their narrow home defeat to Warrington on Friday evening.

The Airlie Birds lost the game 6-7, but Radford felt the defensive effort from his players was superb.

“To nullify their attacking threat to just seven points and the one try is a great achievement,” he told his club’s official website.

“Warrington bust us a few times in the game but the desire and effort of all the players out there to scramble back was really impressive and is something that you cannot teach.

“If we had possibly taken our chances better, then we had a real chance of winning that game in the same fashion we did against Huddersfield last weekend.

“That is obviously the area we’ll be looking to improve in training over the coming days.

“Although it is a loss which is obviously not ideal, there were plenty of pleasing factors from that match that we’ll take moving forward to our next game with Salford in two weeks’ time.

“We have to put the performance in perspective because Warrington are Grand Final favourites and we had a completion rate of 90% and asked some serious questions of them defensively.”
