Hull FC coach Lee Radford admitted his side’s performance in “Grand Final weather” during Thursday’s defeat at Huddersfield is a cause for concern.
The Black and Whites saw their 10-game winning run in all competitions come to a halt with a 22-12 loss to the Giants – but their significant points difference means they will still be top at the end of the weekend.
But Radford, who said his side got what they deserved, said his side showed no composure in the wet conditions, with rain for most of the evening making for a difficult night for FC.
“What worries me is this was perfect Grand Final weather and we weren’t patient enough to handle it,” he said.
“So if we show no patience in these conditions, these are the conversations we’ll have later in the year.
“I’m really disappointed, but I’ve no qualms with the result – we 100 per cent got what we deserved.
“We started the second half well and scored a great try – but from there we were schooled in how to play wet-weather football.”
