Hull FC boss Brett Hodgson confirms two more season-ending injuries as he bemoans one Wakefield Trinity try in bad Super League defeat

Hull FC took on Wakefield Trinity at the MKM Stadium live on Sky Sports tonight.

The Black and Whites were dismal in the first-half as Wakefield dotted down three times, with Lewis Murphy grabbing a double and Lee Kershaw sliding in at the other corner.

Hull did finally reply with a Ben McNamara try from a Luke Gale kick, but that was all they had to show for in a 16-6 half-time deficit.

Wakefield were in a buoyant mood, however, and another try just after the break from Liam Hood sent them into a shock 22-6 lead.

And, Trinity weren’t finished there either with Murphy registering a hat-trick after Lee Gaskell had the ball knocked out of his grasp.

Ellis Longstaff did manage to dot down following a Gale kick with the latter’s conversion bringing Hull back to 26-12, and, Hull had just enough time for Chris Satae to force his way over to bring them back to within eight.

But, Wakefield held on for a superb win.

Losing head coach Brett Hodgson bemoaned another two serious injuries for the Black and Whites.

“It’s difficult when you are down on personnel with Manu Ma’u going off with a broken arm and Joe Lovodua has a mediate cruciate ligament injury and there was some luck not going our way,” Hodgson said on Sky Sports after the game.

“I thought the Harvey Barron try where it hit the head of Lee Gaskell, Harvey didn’t get a chance to take a catch. There are other times where we are our own worst enemy, but we want to finish the season well.”

When asked by Sky Sports pundit Jenna Brooks why there is anxiety in the club, Hodgson replied: “I think that’s been evident at our club for a number of years.

“We are trying our hardest to get out of that, with expectation, with how many games we’ve got left and at home there are a number of elemets with that.

“The players haven’t given up, we could have conceded a lot of points there but we came back into the game at the end. I’m proud they kept fighting.

Hodgson also believed Hull could no longer make the play-offs.
