Hull FC went down 4-0 to Warrington Wolves tonight at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in what can only be described as ‘one for the purists.’
There were no tries scored as only two Stefan Ratchford penalties proved the difference between the two sides in the end, with Hull’s Darnell McIntosh missing an opportunity to level the scores just before the hour.
Things couldn’t get any worse for the Black and Whites in terms of injuries with Luke Gale and Adam Swift adding to the extended injury list sustained by Hull.
And, head coach Brett Hodgson lamented those two injuries and how it affected his side until the end.
“It was tough to lose but the effort was outstanding especially as we had 16 men for 60 minutes,” Hodgson said on Sky Sports after the game.
“Losing our halfback you could see we were disjointed in attack but the effort was outstanding
“Luke didn’t look great, I think he was feeling a bit sorry for himself which is understandable as it was a nasty collision.
“And, I think as soon as Adam went down the tunnel they thought he might have broken his leg.
“I think we had a plan and we came here willing to play and unfortunately when you lose your halfback it’s difficult at any level.”
It leaves Hull still in fifth, but five points behind Huddersfield Giants in fourth.
