Hull FC owner wants side to show more ‘desire’

Hull FC owner Adam Pearson believes his side need to show more desire than they did during their defeat to Widnes, if their season is to really take off.

The Black and Whites are without a whole host of senior players due to injury and suspension when they take on Salford tomorrow night, but Pearson believes Lee Radford’s men will be fine if they stick together.

“We need to show more desire than we did against Widnes, but before that game I was reasonably satisfied,” Pearson told the Hull Daily Mail.

“We know we’ll need to batten down the hatches for the next two or three weeks until we get some of our key players back, but we’ll come together as a group until we get some big guys back.

“The players know they need to work hard over the next few weeks because of the people we are missing through the RFL’s judgement and injuries. I’m still fuming over the shocking Mickey Paea decision.”
