Hull FC star “disappointed” with controversial decision

Many Hull FC fans will, perhaps quite rightly, feel aggrieved by the decision to sin bin Jack Ashworth.

This is because it was somewhat accidental head on head contact but due to the new rules he received a yellow card and in the mind of Barrie McDermott on Sky Sports the prop was “lucky” to not receive a red card like the tackle from Mark Percival.

However, in years gone by this would be seen as a big tackle from Ashworth and he was “clearly disappointed” by the decision according to McDermott who watched Ashworth leave the field on Sky Sports suggesting Ashworth was anything but happy with the controversial call made at the end of the first half.

Hull FC unlucky to lose to Catalans Dragons

Hull FC showed some real guts throughout this Super League clash which they were widely written off for after only just getting over the mark against London Broncos to notch their first win of the season.

It took less than a minute for the Dragons to score as former Castleford Tigers star Mike McMeeken stormed through and teed up Jayden Nikorima to score after starting at fullback in place of Arthur Mourgue.

He touched down less than 40 seconds into the game and would later come off with a hamstring injury.

The Dragons extended their lead after a lovely move left to Matthieu Laguerre to slice through. But the Black and Whites got themselves on the score board when Fa’amanu Brown touched down a kick and would later have a try denied only just by scrambling defence.

Then came the Ashworth incident and he was sin binned as the Dragons kicked the goal to take a 14-6 lead into halftime. Hull FC did miss a penalty of their own.

In the second half Hull FC kept plugging away and claimed another try when the ball bounced off Tom Johnstone, into the face of Carlos Tuimavave leading to a Jack Walker try who then went off injured.

The Black and Whites though would then see the game slip through their fingers as the Dragons notched two more tries to conclude a 26-12 win.
