Radford wary of threatening Leeds back division

Hull FC coach Lee Radford admits he’s only fully too aware of the threat Leeds pose in attack tonight – and insists his team are the underdogs against the Rhinos tonight.

Leeds have notched over 100 points so far in Super League in just three games, and have won all three matches so far this season along with defending champions St Helens.

FC however, have just a solitary win to their name, and Radford has highlighted the danger Leeds’ prominent and prolific back division poses.

He told the club’s official website: “Leeds are obviously a massive challenge for us, they are three games from three, they are averaging 35 points a game and it’s Leeds which says it all.

“It is fair to say we’ll be underdogs going into Thursday’s game.

“Tom Briscoe, the shackles seem to be off at the moment and he looks outstanding and the combinations between Hall, Hardaker and Watkins are a real danger.”
