Radford wants defensive effort

Hull FC head coach Lee Radford is hoping his side can put in a defensive effort against Warrington that can give them a vital victory on Friday. 

Eleven wins in 12 matches for the Black and Whites has propelled Lee Radford‘s side to the top of Super League ahead of travelling to Halliwell Jones stadium to face second placed Warrington. 

Radford knows the threat the Wolves carry in attack, and is hoping his side can continue their fine form in the top-of-the-table clash on Friday night. 

“We’ve consciously just focused on the top four – that was the goal from the start of the year – and we’ve just made it about the week after because if two or three losses comes, then all of a sudden you are looking at a different scenario,” Radford told rugby-league.com. 

“If we can perform well and beat a Warrington team peforming well, it would be a real shot in the arm for us.

“But we’re under no illusion, they’re a very good side and their left edge in particular is phenomenally strong, so defensively we’re going to have to be really tidy with our decision-making and our contact because they’ve got some big, physical players. 

“Whenever we’ve played Warrington, it’s been at a good tempo and I think game will be no different.”
