Lee Radford has urged Jamie Shaul to continue his recent good form when Hull face Castleford on Friday.
Shaul bagged a pair of tries against Wakefield last weekend as the Arlie Birds made it four wins in a row and Radford wants more of the same against the Super League leaders.
“I thought his all-round game was really good. We probably had three or four who were in that category as well,” said Radford.
“I’m really pleased for him and his form now has been consistent and really good for us over the last couple of months and hopefully he can continue that.”
Radford is expecting a reaction from Castleford when the two sides meet for the second time in the space of two weeks.
Hull booked their place in the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup at the expense of the Tigers, and having experienced retribution from Warrington last year after their cup final victory Radford says his players must be ready for Daryl Powell’s team to come out firing.
“I talk about learning lessons from last year and after the cup final last year we played Warrington at home for the League Leaders’ Shield and we got out-enthused that night,” he added.
“I think there was a bit of revenge in that performance from Warrington and I’ve got no doubt that will be exactly the same from Castleford this week.
“That’s something we’ve been highlighting to the players – if we’re not bang at it then expect a real response from these blokes.”
