Hull FC prevail in Challenge Cup cracker

Hull FC are one win away from ending their Wembley hoodoo after winning a pulsating semi-final against Wigan 16-12.

Two tries in four second-half minutes proved to be the difference, as Lee Radford’s men came from 8-2 down to take a commanding lead.

Willie Isa’s try ten minutes from the end resulted in a grandstand finish, but the Airlie Birds withstood everything Wigan threw at them to win the match, sparking incredible scenes in Hull’s packed-out end of the stadium.

Wigan were 6-2 ahead at half-time thanks to George Williams’ try, but after Matty Smith extended the lead with a penalty early in the second-half, tries for Steve Michaels and Fetuli Talanoa put Hull in control. A Sneyd penalty extended the lead, and although Isa’s try cut the deficit to four, Hull ultimately triumphed.
