Kyle Amor, a four time Super League winning prop, has criticised Hull FC’s pack saying that it is not good enough to compete with the top sides.
He said on Channel 4 as Hull FC lost to Warrington Wolves yesterday: “In all honesty, I don’t think this Hull FC pack are quick enough or mobile enough to compete with the top sides.
“I think, based on the evidence of today and what we have seen in the opening seven rounds, it would be very difficult not to agree with that.”
Also speaking on Channel 4, Mark Wilson said of Hull FC: “This first half has not been good enough.”
This came as he broke down Drinkwater’s try just before the break when he described their defence as “paper thin.”
Meanwhile, Amor said of the the Hull defence: “You have to stop that.”
As the halftime whistle was blown, Wilson said: “There are some boos from the Hull FC fans. They really have not been good enough in this first half.
“I am not sure what the paintwork is like in the away dressing room here but Tony Smith will be testing it at halftime.”
Channel 4 pundit Danika Priim was a little kinder on Hull: “They have been unlucky down that end of the field.”
She said when referencing the errors down the attacking end of the field.
Paul Sculthorpe though said of Hull FC’s defence for the Drinkwater try: “That is not good enough because Drinkwater is not a big prop running at them, he’s a halfback.
“It has to start with defence but they also have to throw a few shapes at Warrington Wolves, the one up stuff isn’t going to work.”
Meanwhile, Helen Skelton didn’t head to the Hull FC changing rooms at halftime as planned because of expected “colourful language.”
