Official Report / Commentary

Hull FC’s revival continued as they put Leeds Rhinos to the sword to earn their first victory at the KCOM Stadium since last June.

The Black and Whites have seen their form make a U-turn in recent weeks, picking up away wins against Wigan Warriors and Huddersfield Giants to bring an end to their 13-game losing run in the Betfred Super League.

Hull had another monkey to get off their back and they did it in style with a 34-10 home triumph, although such a comprehensive victory did not look on the cards early on.

Young centre Harry Newman opened the scoring with his first try for Leeds and Hull old boy Tom Briscoe made it a dream start for the Rhinos when he went over in the corner.

But Hull ruthlessly exposed the visitors’ insecurities in defence as they ran in five tries in little over 15 minutes through Ratu Naulago, Masi Matongo, Marc Sneyd, Jamie Shaul and Albert Kelly.

Dean Hadley scored the only try of an uneventful second half with the points already in the bag for Hull.

Leeds head coach David Furner said: "I'm disappointed because I know the squad can be better than that. They need to put their shoulders in and make their tackles."

Hull head coach Lee Radford said: "It’s pleasing to beat them because they’re notoriously really difficult to beat when they play us.

"To pick up that result and scoreline, I’m over the moon."
