Match Highlights

Official Report / Commentary

Hull FC consolidated their Betfred Super League top-four credentials with a 40-18 victory over fifth-placed Wakefield Trinity at the KCOM Stadium.

Hull ran in seven tries to Wakefield's three as they extended their winning run to four matches, with the returning Marc Sneyd kicking six goals to Liam Finn's three kicks for Trinity.

Craig Huby and Mahe Fonua both received yellow cards before Jamie Shaul's 17th try of the season and Fetuli Talanoa’s acrobatic finish put Hull 10-0 up after 20 minutes.

Wakefield hit back to nudge 12-10 ahead at the break with two tries of their own through James Batchelor and Sam Williams before former Hull centre Reece Lyne scored from short range to extend Trinity's lead to 18-10 shortly after the restart.

Tries from Jake Connor and Sneyd turned the match around for Hull before a tremendous solo effort from Shaul and late tries from Fonua and Jansin Turgut sealed victory for the hosts.

Hull head coach Lee Radford said afterwards: "I would have been a lot happier if we started like that and then fell off because I think that would have been understandable. We don't like to do things the right way round. 

"We started really poor in terms of our contact. Poor in terms of our patience but managed to fix that up in the last 20-25 minutes. It's not the first time that we have done that this season. We have done it a couple of times this year - thankfully they are a talented enough group to do that within games. I think that was the case tonight."

Wakefield boss Chris Chester said: "I felt we had the upper hand until about the 60-minute mark. We were knocking the sets off well, we were kicking well, I thought we were defending very tough as well - but that last 20 minutes I really don't know what happened.

"We have got to react better to adversity."
