Luke Gale responds to harsh criticism with relegation comment

It’s fair to say things aren’t going great at Hull FC at the moment.

They have lost seven games in a row since winning the first two of 2023.

They now sit 11th in the league and questions are being raised about the side. They have over 20 players out of contract at the end of the season which won’t help matters.

However, many would argue that the club are still dealing with the main problems that have been at the heart of them missing out on the play-offs in 2021 and 2022.

There is a discontent among some Hull fans as you’d expect from a side in 11th who are very big club with huge potential.

And thus that discontent has translated to social media and one fan shared images of Kane Evans, Josh Reynolds, Luke Gale and Josh Jones questioning if there has been a worse signing in the Super League era.

A very harsh assessment with Josh Reynolds starting life at the MKM Stadium brilliantly in 2021, Luke Gale captaining a struggling side and coming up with some clutch plays in big games such as the Hull derby at the Magic Weekend and the fact that Josh Jones has been excellent for Huddersfield Giants since leaving Hull FC.

Kane Evans hasn’t had the chance to show what he can do due to injuries and suspensions but his quality in the NRL shows he is a very good player.

Nonetheless, Luke Gale has hit back at this Tweet joking that he expects a good reception when Keighley visit Hull next year suggesting that they could get relegated.

He took to Twitter to say:

After their seventh consecutive defeat last night, which came at the expense of one of Gale’s former clubs Leeds Rhinos, Hull boss Tony Smith said:

“Disappointed, it was another game where we had a little more field position and territory than some of the other games that we have been struggling in but it still comes down to converting those periods in the game into points.

“The lack of converting that and putting pressure on our opponents and instead letting them come down the other end and we succumb to very little pressure is disappointing.

“It’s tough, we are doing it tough at the moment as I say to the supporters but it is tough for the people involved and participating.

“I can see effort in there and the way they are trying but some of it is just not coming off for us at the moment.”
