Hull FC coach Lee Radford politely declined to offer any injury updates on his sidelined stars and revealed he would not discuss them any further this season.

The Black and Whites have a few names currently on the treatment table but, by this point in the season, Radford wanted to be fully focused on the players that are fit to play and their performance as his side look to secure a top five spot.

“We’re not talking about injuries, I’ve decided we’re not speaking about them anymore,” he told Hull Daily Mail’s William Jackson.

“I just want to focus on the blokes that get named and can win us a game of footy. I don’t want to concentrate on the blokes that aren’t out there.

“I think the 17 we put out, with the squad we’ve got, is capable of winning any game from here on in. Focusing on them blokes out there is important I reckon.

“I’m going to speak to the physios as little as I possibly can and I’m sure he’ll be pleased about that.”
