hull can win this one and have to improve on last weeks dire performance against vikings.
salford got the win over cas, and played pretty well too, chase controlling the game and some of the big name forwards at last getting through the hard work. but overall its been a pretty poor start for noble, just 2 wins so far, he can say he needs time and its only early but for the money hes spent and the kind of cash the chairman has invested he would have been looking for so much more.
hull have shown some good signs and played nice stuff in some games, crushing bulls for example, but last week was a very poor result. yes it was played in heavy rain against an underrated side, but not scoring at home to a team like widnes isnt good enough. hull have underperformed for years in super league the results often dont match the fans support or the quality of the squad.
radford was raging with his side last week so ive no doubt its been a tough week on the training field for hull and that their guys will be out tonight desperate to put things right. it wont be a hammering, and it certainly wont be high scoring but i believe hull will have enough quality in their attack to win this by a couple of scores. salfords problems didnt end with 1 half decent win i think noble and his side have a long way to go.
