Garry Schofield believes Hull FC WILL pick up some silverware in 2016.
Lee Radford’s side remain two points clear at the top of Super League following their hard-fought victory over Warrington, and in Schofield’s latest League Express column ‘Pulling No Punches’, he has backed them to fill their trophy cabinet by the end of the year.
“All credit to Lee Radford. He hasn’t had it easy in his time as coach of the club, but he’s stuck true to his beliefs and he’s made a fool of those who have questioned his right to do the job in the last couple of years,” he said.
“But, as ever, it’s the players who deserve most of the praise. In Super League’s recent history, I’m struggling to think of a better pack of forwards than what Hull currently have. Their front row is brilliant – we all know that. I can’t speak highly enough of Scott Taylor, Danny Houghton and Liam Watts. But Gareth Ellis is playing as well as ever and if he hadn’t retired from international duty, he’d be a great chance of playing in this year’s Four Nations.”
