Hull ace hits out at attitude

1st April 2019, 00:26 by Michael Holland

Hull FC have an attitude problem that needs sorting out quickly if they are to have a successful season, Joel Westerman says.

Hull suffered their worst ever defeat on home soil on Friday night as Warrington Wolves romped to a 63-12 victory at the KCOM Stadium, to leave Westerman and the rest of the side stunned.

The same can be said of the supporters, who would have been alarmed by the performance, that left huge question marks over whether Hull can be seen as genuine Super League title contenders.

Westerman blasted the attitude of the players and says it needs rectifying immediately.

"It was embarrassing, really. Just embarrassing," he said. "Defensively we weren't there; they rolled us and taught us a real lesson.

"It's a tough one explaining what we put it down to as we trained well all week and we expect to turn up and put that training into the game."But it's got to come down to an attitude thing really.

"It showed on that second set; they got their noses through and did a 100 metre set which is not good enough from us. Not good enough at all."
