Lee Radford praised his side’s battling qualities as he celebrated his 100th game in charge of Hull FC with a victory.
Hull defeated St Helens 24-14 to earn Hull a third victory in four games, and Radford was pleased with his team’s efforts.
“It’s a big win, in a physical game against a good side. I’m pleased, it was a real tough day at the office.”
“Probably our desperation towards the end got us the win, particularly when we were down to 12 men, against a side who were quite desperate themselves at the minute.
“To out-do them in that part of the game at the back end was really pleasing. There were some outstanding individual performances.”
