I think this is something that Hodgson has really had to battle with since he joined Hull. Radford's Hull were mentally weak in a way I've rarely seen in professional sport. I lost count of the times I saw their heads drop and they started feeling sorry for themselves. It's something that Hodgson is working hard to address. It's so frustrating because when things are going well we are more than a match for anyone. But we don't deal well with adversity.

Hodgson will turn out into a great coach for Hull FC IMO

I don't think Leeds are a tough team.  I think they (and Hull to be fair) are a bit soft.

The recent Out Of Your League podcast with Morgan Knowles had a quote from him is his younger days when he said: "I had to be good at the mental side.  I've never been the most talented but will do the things others won't - when games are tough I never look for an easy way out.  Other people will break before I do".

I think when you watch Saints they have fostered this sort of attitude.  The coach has it in bucketloads.  They are intense, tough, enjoy the hard parts of the game and take pride in them.

I think Leeds are poorly coached and a bit soft.

I would have to agree, think we lack somthing mentally.

The semi last year, whilst it was going to be a tough task regardless, we were beat before we took the field imo

It can change very quickly but it needs the right coach and some leaders in the team.

I like Agar - he seems a good bloke - but I just don’t think he’s an elite coach.

I hope Hodgson is because Hull are such an underperforming club for its size. I would love Hull to be one of the top teams for a sustained period as I think it would be great for the game (sorry Rovers fans!). I’m not yet convinced though.

Leeds should have appointed Ian Watson in my opinion - maybe not the man to return them to the very top but I think he is the right sort of coach from a drains up / culture point of view and would move them on a stage or two.

Agar should just move to the job he was originally appointed to do.

Not sure who’s available to take over though?

isnt Tony Smith out of contract next year maybe they should go back to the future!

Sky Sports Jenna Brooks to Jake Connor regarding England selection : "Shaun Wane has said that he's spoken to you about why you were left out, he's also said he's told you what you needed to do more of, I'm interested, what do you need to do more of and did you do it tonight?"

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."

Competition for places is a fundemental. Saints have it... not many others do. Leeds don't imho...  When you have a full squad and limited debate about who the first choice are or first 17 then it is clear...

whether that's managing the salary cap, not developing the youngsters as well, (although even then competition for places would be key throughout their early development), or managing/integrating the youngsters better... Hard to say but are issues that play a part...

Joe Cator is absolutely devastated returning from 7 months of rehab after rupturing his achilles only to do it again, same injury.

Really feel for the lad.

That news really took the shine off what was a great night on the Western Terrace. I'm absolutely gutted for him. The drive and energy he brings to the team has been missed so much.

We're going to miss him and I hope he can make a full recovery. He's got it in him to be a top player.

Old Faithful we never lose at Wembley

Having been at the game last night I haven't seen any of the Sky footage aside some brief highlights but someone posted this on facebook as an excerpt from Jenna Brooks' post match interview with Connor :

Jenna Brooks - "Shaun Wane says he’s spoken to you about what you need to work on. Did you show him that you’ve worked on those things tonight?"

Jake Connor - “I don’t know, I haven’t spoken to him”

Is that really what was said?

Oh dear.

If that's true then it doesn't bode well on his management style does it.

Or his credibility.

I had a look myself and found that unfortunately it was true, more details below.
