Kevin Brown says Hull’s rugby league passion is working against Hull FC

Hull is a rugby city and we can see how much it means to the people of Hull with the fan reaction to Hull KR on Friday night.

However, Kevin Brown has suggested that passion of the people of Hull is working against the struggling club at the moment after they have lost the last seven games.

Brown said on BBC Five Live: “The fact that it’s such a big thing in Hull almost goes against Hull FC because what they’re really poor with at the minute is that when they’re tested with any sort of adversity, their resilience isn’t there.

“They capitulate like no team I’ve ever seen and that’s not a Tony Smith side, that’s not a Brett Hodgson side and that’s not a Lee Radford side. But that’s a Hull FC side and that’s been the same for probably the past decade.

“Whenever they’re in front and starting well they’re great, they’ve got lots who can attack and the fans will pat them on the back. But as soon as they go behind and things aren’t going as well then the fans get on the back, the players don’t react positively and they sink in a hole.

“That’s the big thing, it’s not attack, it’s not defence. It’s not anything but just character and resilience and I think that’s between their ears. Regardless of what coach comes in they all go the same way and they’ve got to change and do much better.”
