Radford stunned with Hull FC capitulation

Hull FC coach Lee Radford said he was embarassed and stunned by his side’s disappointing performance against Widnes tonight.

The Black and Whites were thrashed by the Vikings 46-6. The game was virtually over just after the start of the second half.

“The game’s a competition and it stopped being a competition after 24 minutes,” Radford told Sky.

“How we capitulate like that is beyond me. It’s embarassing, I’m a proud man and I’m very embarassed with what’s gone on there because I’m responsible as the coach. I take full responsiblity for that.

“Obviously we’ve not doing something right for that to happen and we’ll try and get to the bottom of that because we’re going to have a real challenge on our hands next Friday.”

Radford admitted Hull FC looked a team without any confidence.

We looked an absolute shell of ourselves,” he said.

“That’s mental toughness, where does that confidence go and where does it come back from. Collectively to collapse like we did is a real worry.”

Radford said he was up for the challenge.

“Yeah I’m up for the fight,” he said. 

“We’ll go to work tomorrow and try and correct this. If I can’t somebody else will.”
