Sky Sports pundit has shock say as Hull FC show character to beat London

Hull FC

Hull FC claimed a first win of the season by putting away the newly promoted London Broncos.

Many were expecting a walkover for the Black and Whites after the Broncos have conceded nearly 100 points in their first two games but they wouldn’t go away.

They even took the lead with an intercept which made it 24-22 but Hull FC stuck in there and found a way to win thanks to a Morgan Smith try at the end.

It would be easy to be critical of Hull FC, but Sky Sports pundit Jon Wells did the opposite.

He said after the game: “You have to pay credit to Hull FC. They have a lot of injuries and suspensions and they were against a London side who would not go away and they found a way to win.”

That winning try is emblematic of the attitude of the club against the odds at the moment.

Tony Smith highlights attitude at Hull FC

Speaking to BBC Radio Humberside before the game, Smith highlighted an unwillingness to feel sorry himself.

He said: “I’m not feeling sorry for myself or us. It is what it is and you get on with it and you toughen up from it. We’d like to be off to a better start in terms of wins and points but we’re not going to sit around moping about it. We get on with it and crack on with the next challenge and look forward to that.

“There’s no point in feeling sorry for yourself and regretting some of the injuries or people that aren’t in there or suspensions. It does you no good. You’ve got to crack on with it, get in there and look forward to the next challenge and deal with that one.

“Simply, there’s going to be heaps of challenges. We’re copping some now, other teams will go through some of that at different stages of the year and we’ll be flying along at some stage when they’re doing their thing where it’s a bit tough.

“We’re gonna get smarter and better and eventually stronger throughout the season.”
