Barrie McDermott slams Super League star’s behaviour in Hull FC-St Helens clash

Barrie McDermott

Hull FC have started brilliantly against Super League and World Champions St Helens.

After losing to them last week, the Black and Whites have burst out of the blocks.

After a strong start, the Black and Whites took the lead against the Champions. A kick from Clifford to the right corner for Hull FC was taken and fed back inside the Clifford who powered over.

After seeing off St Helens pressure, Andre Savelio charged forward off a Saints kick. He would then later in the set charge towards the line. After being held, a short ball allowed skipper Carlos Tuimavave to power over.

Hull then scored a third try after a kick appeared to be running dead with Jack Welsby shepherding the ball however he would be made to pay for taking no action with the ball flicked back in play and grounded by Jake Trueman.

The set for that try was gifted by a ball into touch from Joe Batchelor.

A big defensive win, Hull celebrated but Clifford maybe took it too far rubbing Batchelor’s head sparking a bit of an altercation.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Barrie McDermott said: “I don’t like that. I’m all for celebrating the defensive wins but that’s too far.”

Fiery in his playing days, McDermott received some criticism then from good friend Terry O’Connor who said: “I’m going to show you some of your old games.”
