Steve Price offers sympathies to Lee Radford in wake of sacking

Drew Darbyshire

Warrington boss Steve Price said he felt for his counterpart Lee Radford, who has been sacked as Hull FC coach.

Radford was sacked just minutes after Hull’s shocking 38-4 defeat at home to Warrington on Thursday night.

Hull owner Adam Pearson made the announcement in a live post-match interview on Sky Sports, with the club having lost four out of their first seven matches of the season.

Price said: “I’ve just been told in the sheds what has gone down and you don’t like to see that on anyone.

“I have a huge amount of respect for Lee as a rugby league coach, I find him as a really thorough gentleman.

“He’s been great for Super League and won two Challenge Cups at Hull. I feel for him.”

Andy Last and Kieron Purtill will take over Radford in temporary charge of the Airlie Birds.
