Leeds Rhinos legend Ryan Bailey gives verdict on Robert Hicks following Hull FC’s loss to Wigan Warriors

Leeds Rhinos legend Ryan Bailey will always be outspoken.

And, in the last few weeks and months, the former prop forward has had a few choice words to say about a number of issues in rugby league.

One of those was the ban handed to Huddersfield Giants star Will Pryce who was suspended for ten matches.

And, now Bailey has had his say on Robert Hicks’ performance as Hull FC travelled to the DW Stadium to take on the Wigan Warriors.

Bailey tweeted: “Robert Hicks just makes the game about himself! Loves a pen #airtime.”

Hull were winning 12-6 at half-time courtesy of first-half tries from Adam Swift and Danny Houghton, but were pegged back in the second forty minutes as Wigan’s Jai Field registered a stunning effort once more and Harry Smith’s drop-goal just got Wigan over the line.

Neither Kane Evans nor Carlos Tuimavave were in the team for Brett Hodgson, with Jenna Brooks revealing that both had missed with slight calf issues.

With Luke Gale back in the halves following a five-match ban there was also a question mark over who he would replace.

With Ben McNamara a natural halfback and Joe Lovodua a utility man, it was thought that the former would get the nod.

However, Hodgson named Lovodua alongside Gale in the halves with Mitieli Vulikijapani replacing Carlos Tuimavave at centre.

Connor Wynne was also on the bench – presumably on there in case there is an injury amongst the backs.
