Hull FC 44, Bradford Bulls 16

The Bulls slipped to a heavy defeat at the KC Stadium tonight as Hull ran out convincing winners in an eight-try victory.

Matt Diskin gave Francis Cummins’ side an early lead when he barrelled over the line in the second minute.

But Lee Radford’s men hit back with three tries in nine minutes through Gareth Ellis, Joe Westerman and Jamie Shaul.

Adrian Purtell replied for the Bulls in the 27 th minute but Hull grabbed three more scores before the break through Richard Whiting, Aaron Heremaia and Danny Houghton.

That made it 32-10 at the break before Shaul’s second and Jordan Rankin increased the agony for the Bulls, who lost debutant Greg Burke to a shoulder injury in the second half.

Liam Sutcliffe also came off the bench after the break and provided an added spark before Adam Henry scored a late consolation in front of the travelling supporters. 

The result left the Bulls on minus two points ahead of next Sunday’s home clash with Huddersfield at the Provident Stadium.

Sounds like a poor a performance against a very good team. Hopefully the kick up the backside we need. Don't mind losing, but playing badly, missing tackles and making so many mistakes isn't excusable, even for the Bulls. Get it sorted out

a poor performance tonight but, the coach and players have had another week of uncertainty. this looked like a bridge too far mentally. the future needs sorting asap before the players reach burn out.
now is the time for our chief executive to earn money!

No more than I expected to be honest. The only thing our chief executive was good at, he stopped doing many many years ago. Get him out.

I don't agree with get him out. I think he is good for the club. I just think he has been quiet this week and needs to say something.

The Administrator rules everything as far as I'm aware and the only thing the Bulls can do is keep on going until we see some light at the end of the tunnel. Lets hope it's soon for all our sakes. Think we are all fed up with the uncertainty of what is happening. No blame attached to anyone - just circumstances. Well done the team and coach who must be under extreme pressure.

The players now have 8 days to prepare for the Huddersfield match. They are getting paid and they will continue to so. They might have agents trying to distract and offer them advice, them but the best thing they can do is put in good performances. Everything else will take care of its itself. If they get relegated most of them will have to find other clubs anyway. as will the players of Wakefield/ Catalans/ London or Hull KR. Our players are only slightly less secure than players of some of the other clubs. Time to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and actually earn the money they are being paid

I know its not easy but there's people in worse situations. I'm tired of us making excuses for playing badly. I didn't expect them to win this one but I did expect them to play at their best. If we do get a buyer some of them will have to improve if they expect a contract next year. perhaps they're hoping to get relegated so they can play at their level next year.

I don't care if we lose every game but players like Addy,Donaldson, Sidlow, Purtell etc are playing well and some of the others are letting them down by kicking out on the full, missing tackles, dropping the ball. Its basic mistakes that are giving us no chance
