Lee Radford reveals the main difference between Hull FC and Castleford Tigers

Lee Radford will forever be remembered by the Black and Whites faithful in West Hull.

After playing for Hull FC for the majority of his career, Radford turned to coaching and led the Airlie Birds to consecutive Challenge Cup victories in 2016 and 2017.

However, the former prop forward was sacked in March 2020 and has been out of the game since then.

Now, though, he has taken the reins at the Castleford Tigers as he aims to take the West Yorkshire club to glory following the departure of Daryl Powell.

And, Radford highlighted the main difference between both clubs.

“It’s been really low key the amount of interviews I’ve had to do,” Radford said.

“The amount of pressure and interest has a different vibe to Hull for whatever reason but I’ve enjoyed it – they are a grounded group and solid.”

Radford is hopeful that going under the radar is exactly what he needs following the bright lights of Hull.

“It’s all new to me, going from five interviews a week to one every fortnight – whenever you open a rugby league page you see what is going on at Hull.

“We are under the radar and I like that – it’s helped us as a group and I don’t think added pressure is good enough for anyone in any environment.”
