Official Report / Commentary

Hull FC overcame the early loss of winger Bureta Faraimo to a red card to claim a gutsy 30-22 victory over Hull KR in an action-packed derby played out in front of a stadium record crowd at KCOM Craven Park.

Faraimo was sent off by referee Chris Kendall for a dangerous tackle on Chris Atkin but his team-mates dug deep to secure a remarkable win in the first meeting between the rivals since Rovers’ return to Betfred Super League.

Fetuli Talanoa took his tally for the season to nine with a double while Danny Houghton marked his return from injury with a try and Jamie Shaul and Jake Connor also crossed.

Thomas Minns scored a hat-trick for the hosts and Ryan Shaw went over but Rovers were unable to make their man advantage count as Hull made it six straight derby wins to the delight of their travelling supporters in a crowd of 12,090.

Hull head coach Lee Radford was understandably delighted with his team’s spirit.

“Our effort again was phenomenal, it has been all year in every game we’ve played,” said Radford.

“I can never question how we approach games but it had to be extra special today.

“It’s a really, really big win for us because of the sending off.

“It was one of the best wins under me. To fight like we did with 12 men and scramble like we did, it’s an advertisement of how tight the group is and their willingness to work for each other is huge.”

Rovers head coach Tim Sheens said: “I don’t think I’ve been so frustrated in a game.

“I think scoreboard pressure got to the players. We were chasing them the whole game.

“But we’ve got no excuses. We chased the game too much.”
