Hull coach Lee Radford praised stand-in half-back Jake Connor following the win over Salford.
Missing regular goalkicker and playmaker Marc Sneyd through injury, Connor stepped up and scored 16 points, including six goals.
Radford told the club’s official website: “We look a lot more disjointed when he’s (Sneyd) not there, but then you get a spurt of good stuff from Jake and it puts a try on a plate.
“He laid four tries this evening and that’s a pat on the back for him.”
The former Huddersfield utility earned himself the man of the match award for his performance.
Radford revealed earlier in the week that he is expecting Sneyd to be back for the trip to St Helens next week.
