Official Report / Commentary

Bureta Faraimo helped himself to a hat-trick as Hull FC inflicted a sixth straight defeat on Salford Red Devils with a resounding 45-14 victory at the KCOM Stadium.

The Black and Whites had the points in the bag inside the opening 20 minutes thanks to Faraimo’s two tries and one apiece for Jack Downs and Jack Logan.

Hakim Miloudi and Jamie Shaul touched down either side of Jake Connor’s cheeky drop goal to make it 37-0 at half-time.

Faraimo completed his treble but Hull eased off to allow Salford to score consolation tries through Greg Johnson, Derrell Olpherts and George Griffin, although it was Connor who had the last word with his eighth goal from as many attempts.

Hull coach Lee Radford said: “We’ll start building when we get some numbers back but at the moment we’re fighting, definitely.

“The difference between 2018 and 2017 is that we’ve not been put to bed by anybody. In every game we’ve played in we’ve fought and it’s a real credit to the culture of the group.

“We’re not where we are because of our big players; we are where we are because of the job the lower numbers in our squad have done when they’ve come in. They’ve been outstanding."

Salford head coach Ian Watson said: “Every defeat puts you in a pressure situation and every week gets harder and harder.

“The worrying thing is we’re continually coming up with these silly little errors. Our ball retention has to be gold and until we sort that out we’re not going to compete against any side.”
