With Hull FC’s horrendous run of form stretching to 13 losses following Thursday night’s defeat to Castleford, England international Jake Connor admitted his frustrations over his side’s current inability to win matches.
Hull lost out in the dying seconds to Hull KR in round one, a game which Connor had to watch from the sidelines through suspension, and were edged out by the Tigers despite having a number of chances to win the game and currently sit zero from two to start 2019.
For someone of the hugely competitive nature of Connor, this, combined with the 11 match losing run stemming back to June last year, has been a bitter pill to swallow.
“I hate losing. It puts me in a bad place. I’ve been asked the question about would I rather have a game next week, I’d rather have a game tomorrow,” he told Hull Daily Mail.
“We’ll definitely be positive going into training but 13 straight losses, who can take that? When I’m so competitive and I haven’t won a game and had that winning feeling for God knows how long, it does get you down.”
