Paul Cooke believes win is round the corner for struggling team

Right now Hull FC sit 11th in the league.

They have two wins and are on a seven game losing run after Leeds Rhinos defeated them 34-10 last night with forwards Tom Holroyd, James McDonnell, Mikolaj Oledzki and Rhyse Martin (though playing in the centre) doing the damage alongside two try winger turned fullback Ash Handley.

However, former Hull star Paul Cooke believes a win will come though it could also be coming for the team below Hull in the shape of Wakefield Trinity who are still without a win.

He said of Hull FC after last night’s defeat:

“A losing streak of 5/6/7/8 or whatever number means you’re closer to that win that’s needed. In a couple/few weeks the Wakefield v Hull FC could be the game that the long losing streak for both teams is broken.”

The Two Teams meet in Round 12. If Wakefield fail to win by then they will be at least four points behind Hull FC whilst if Hull fail to win by then they will have endured a 10 week run without a win.

That game could shape up to be a massive match though Tony Smith and his side will be hoping to haul themselves away from danger with some wins between now and then.

Wakefield currently have a game in hand on Hull as they take on newly promoted Leigh Leopards on Sunday at Belle Vue.
