Radford calls for more clinical edge after poor second half

Hull FC coach Lee Radford praised his players for some of the tries they scored in their narrow win over Salford, but was left frustrated by their inability to kill the game off.

The Black and Whites held off a late Salford fight back to win 35-32 after racing into an 18-0 early and held a 35-16 lead in the final quarter, before the Red Devils scored three late tries to set up a tense finish.

Radford was encouraged by his sides’ attack but called for his players to be more cut throat moving on to Castleford next week.

“We started quickly against Catalans last week but momentum shifted so we spoke about doing a few thing better to stop that, but we didn’t do that in the second-half. We have to better at Castleford on Thursday,” he said.

“But we scored some really nice distance tries. Ratu’s was amazing and Shaul’s was pretty special too. I just wish we had been a bit more clinical.”
