Hull FC coach Lee Radford has insisted he hasn’t put much thought into what it will be like leading his hometown club out as coach in a cup final this weekend – adding that he believes he’ll look like a “tramp” as he adheres to his own personal superstitions!
Radford was asked on Monday at the pre-Wembley press conference whether he’ll be throwing on a suit for the Challenge Cup final against Warrington – but Radford instantly replied that he’s going for a different look.
“I’m not wearing a suit,” he said. “I’m going for my lucky polo, my nice blue shoes and the trousers that I’ve had on right the way through the Challenge Cup run. I’m going to look like a right tramp behind a fully suited and booted squad. I’m keeping it real!”
Radford also said he’s not given too much thought to the hoodoo surrounding Hull as they prepare to return to Wembley this weekend aiming to win there for the first time in the club’s history.
He said: “I haven’t put too much thought into becoming the first Hull coach to win at Wembley. Everything has been about the build-up and making sure everything is good.
“Someone asked me what it will be like to walk out at Wembley – but I honestly haven’t put a great deal of thought into it.”
