Hull FC saw their 100% start to the season come to end as they historically played out a draw against the Warrington Wolves, a very first under the current golden point format.
It was a day of what could have been for the Black and Whites, who have now failed to beat the Wolves at home since 2018.
Hodgson reflected, “We will learn some really good lessons today.
“To be fair, you have to give a lot of credit to Warrington as I thought it was their best performance for a number of games, even going back into last year as well.
“I thought they asked many questions of us indeed and I think we had to be on our game defensively to shut down their threats.
“Plenty of lessons learned though and we will hopefully be ready for next week.”
Despite dropping a point, Hull remain unbeaten, still sitting in the top half of the table.
The Airlie Birds are currently the second best defensive side only behind Champions St Helens. Hodgson praised his side’s effort in that department.
He added, “That result was a little underwhelming. Obviously, we will take a point but I am very disappointed with how we lost it in the end.
“Plenty of lessons to learn from that game but in terms of our attitude to defending, I could not be more proud.
“Still a little disappointed with that last play of the game, where we gave them a chance to tie it up, but again, really proud of the effort.”
