Hull FC's worked hard for their points and were led by player-coach Billy Swainger, the club's only current England squad member, who scored a try and four goals for his side.

Also on Sunday, London Roosters inflicted Halifax Panthers' first defeat of the season, winning 40-30 away from home.

They were six points down at half time in an epic battle with England's Lewis King leading the charge with four tries for London.

Rob Hawkins was in impressive form for Halifax as he recorded two tries and five goals on the day, alongside a try for Wayne Boardman.
