St Helens legend forced to backtrack on comments in hilarious tweet

St Helens were stunned last night.

After a strong start, the Black and Whites took the lead against the Champions. A kick from Clifford to the right corner for Hull FC was taken and fed back inside the Clifford who powered over.

After seeing off St Helens pressure, Andre Savelio charged forward off a Saints kick. He would then later in the set charge towards the line. After being held, a short ball allowed skipper Carlos Tuimavave to power over.

Hull then scored a third try after a kick appeared to be running dead with Jack Welsby shepherding the ball however he would be made to pay for taking no action with the ball flicked back in play and grounded by Jake Trueman.

Hull FC get the pressure on the Saints and Chris Satae scored a simple try as he stepped left and burrowed over.

Hull looked to have scored a fifth try before the break as Jamie Shaul carved through and spun the ball wide to Litten. He looked to have produced an acrobatic finish in the corner but the try was denied as he was seen to have dropped the ball.

The Saints gave themselves hope with a lovely try. Konrad Hurrell carved through before a great last play saw Jack Welsby feed James Bell to score.

The Black and Whites then cancelled that out with a try of their own. Clifford continued to pull the strings with a grubber leading to a Cam Scott try.

After Hull spent the second half defending, the Black and Whites crowned the win with a superb try as McIntosh intercepted and raced the length of the field to score.

Following this St Helens legend Paul Sculthorpe posted a hilarious tweet.

Sculthorpe backed the Saints to win by 12 points saying on Beftred:

“Thursday will no doubt be another tough encounter and the champions continue to chase down those early-season lost points. If they show the attitude and application of previous weeks I can’t see anything other than another win. I’m going for Saints by 12 points or more which is 11/10 with title sponsors Betfred.”

Proven very wrong by Hull, Sculthorpe simply shared the piece with a delete gif:
