Hull heap misery on Saints

Lee Radford celebrated his 100th game in charge of Hull FC with a victory over St Helens as two Albert Kelly tries secured a 24-14 win.

Kelly’s try at the end secured back-to-back wins for the Saints, with the pressure on their coach Keiron Cunningham increasing after a third consecutive defeat.

It was Kelly who opened the scoring for Hull, but Saints were in the lead 8-6 at half-time after Dom Peyroux’s try and a Mark Percival penalty goal.

Hull edged ahead through two Sneyd penalty goals, but Percival again put Saints ahead with a penalty himself and a try.

However, Hull left victorious as Carlos Tuimavave and Kelly scored to secure another victory.
