Hull FC interim Head Coach Andy Last expressed his pride in the playing group for their performance against Warrington Wolves.
The Black and Whites claimed a 27-14 victory at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, to leave them 80 minutes away from the Grand Final.
Last says the whole group from one to 17 deserve credit.
He said: “I am extremely proud of the group of players and the coaches and support staff.
“To get a performance like that, and we needed our best 80 minute performance to beat them and we did it. I am really proud.
“We spoke about aiming up and trying to beat your opposite number. One to 17, I thought we did that. We were outstanding tonight.
“A really solid team performance, every individual did their job well.”
The Black and Whites now travel to Wigan with a place in the Grand Final up for grabs.
Last hopes for a better performance than when they met in the Challenge Cup Quarter Finals earlier in the year, when they lost at Salford.
He added: “They gave us a real lesson in the Challenge Cup. We will need to be even better than we were tonight.
“The fact we are 80 minutes away from a Grand Final, if that doesnt motivate the group enough, then they are in the wrong profession.
“I expect another good week of practice. We will recover and review tomorrow, then we will get ready for Wigan on Thursday.”
