Hull boss bitten by dog during Salford preparations

Hull FC coach Lee Radford had to interrupt his side’s training preparations for their clash with Salford on Saturday after he was bitten whilst attempting to rescue an injured dog.

Radford paused training to pursue the injured dog he’d spotted outside the club’s County Road training facility, but spend the afternoon in A&E after he was bitten on the hand.

“I was saving a dog, they’re all calling me the dog whisperer outside. It got ran over outside of here yesterday so I chased it down County Road and then I got out of breath so I pinched a young kids bike,” he explained.

“I got down to the bottom of County Road, I managed to corner it, it was only a little cute thing, and it bit my hand. I spent the afternoon in A&E getting tetanus shots and now I look like Keith Lemon.”
