Official Report / Commentary

Josh Griffin scored two tries as Hull FC moved into the top half of the Super League table with a narrow 28-24 win at London Broncos.

The hosts had led 14-10, with Elliot Kear and Eloi Pelissier scoring tries, but Hull hit back with 18 unanswered points to move ahead, with Griffin and Albert Kelly among the try scorers.

Jordan Abdull and Rhys Williams touched down for the Broncos and they had a chance to win it with a penalty under the Hull posts. 

But the experienced visitors held firm for their fourth win of the season, moving them up to fifth in the table.

The hosts, on their return to Super League this term, have enjoyed success at home, with only Castleford Tigers lowering their colours, but they will be left to rue not taking their chances in an opening 40 they enjoyed the better of.

London coach Danny Ward said: "It could have gone either way, that’s sport, but over the 80 we probably didn’t quite deserve it – we were a little bit soft – and didn’t do enough.

"Of course the boys are annoyed, and some of them will have a little sulk, but that’s only natural.

"By the time the Huddersfield game comes round there’s no doubt we’ll be bang up for it and I have no doubt it will be a positive week around the place." 

Hull FC coach Lee Radford said: "We were challenged, like we knew we would be, and it’s pleasing to come out the other end with a win.

"They will come at you for 80 minutes and you can’t be impatient because they will hurt you."
