Hull FC have lost the last seven games and face the tough task of hosting Ian Watson’s Huddersfield Giants on Sunday.
The Black and Whites are doing it tough and Kevin Brown has suggested that things are made worse for the club because of the pressure on the club.
“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,” he said on BBC Five Live.
He went on to say that Hull “capitulate like no other team” as he said:
“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.”
